Riyadh – Sahar Al-Rihani:
In a statement obtained by a French platform, the Royal Court announced the death of young Prince Alwaleed bin Khaled bin Talal, nicknamed the sleeping prince who had previously suffered severe bleeding in the right lung and had failed to control it.
Following the incident, he entered a 14-year coma. Doctors stated that he had died of brain death. However, his father, Prince Khaled bin Talal, and his mother, Princess Mona, daughter of Lebanese leader Riad al-Salah, refused to remove medical devices from him.
Throughout the 14-year period, his parents were caring for him in the hope that his state of health and return to normal life would improve.
The people of Saudi Arabia describe Prince Alwaleed bin Khalid bin Talal as the sleeping prince.
Earlier, a legitimate fatwa had been issued that considered Prince Khalid bin Talal dead from the legitimate aspect of the brain death.
Prince Khaled bin Talal bin Abdulaziz, the father of the sleeping prince, is the third son of Prince Talal,
the brother of renowned businessman Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, and a member of the Sales Commission and the General Secretariat of the Senior Scholars’ Authority.
