How Saudi crown prince took nearly 500 selfies during landmark business forum
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman surprised the audience at the Future Investment Initiative gala dinner, after he took a large and unprecedented number of selfies for an official with those gathered at the event.
According to local newspaper Sabq, Prince Mohammed bin Salman entered the hotel’s restaurant dedicated for the event’s gala dinner despite having a full scheduled agenda. The Saudi prince dedicated a long time to capture a number of selfie photos with the audience, shake their hands and asked to know them personally.
The audience and the journalists gathered at the event praised the prince’s familiarity and generous way in his personal dealing with those invited to the event.
The gala dinner came shortly after the Saudi crown prince announced the launch of the mega project NEOM.
The prince spent more than 100 minutes with the attendees, until the number of selfie photos exceeded 500 by some estimates.
