This was sudden, but not unexpected, unfortunately.


Crown Prince Sultan was thought to be 83 years old, but may have been as old as 87.


I believe the Second Deputy Prime Minister Prince Nayef will become the new Crown Prince.

Even though it unlikely I hope they name Prince Nuf(I think he is a male not much on him) the full brother of King Abdullah, Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.

I believe you're referring to Prince Nayef, but is he or isn't he a full brother? According to King Abdullah's Wiki page he is, but according to his own Wiki page and the page on the Line of Succession, he's only a half-brother.

There's a Prince Nuf separate from Prince Nayef (a Sudairi Seven) who is King Abdullah's full brother.

Prince Nayef is the full brother of King Abdullah, but considerably more conservative than His Majesty.  There are indications that the succession may be contested.

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Sultan will be buried tomorrow.  He died in New York City's Cornell Columbia Medical Center New York Hospital.  He was said to have long suffered from cancer and to also have developed dimentia in recent years.  His son Prince Bandar was the long time Saudi Ambassador to the United States who served as the Dean of the DC diplomatic corps due to his long tenure.  Prince Bandar is a close friend of the Bush family.

No, that's wrong. Prince Nayef is one of the Sudairi Seven, and King Abdullah is not, ergo, they cannot be full brothers.

Saudi Prince's funeral : Saudi Prince's funeral

His Majesty King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia arrives at the Imam Turki Mosque in Riyadh for the funeral of his brother, the late Crown Prince Sultan ibn Abdul Aziz al Saud.  The frail looking King wore a surgical mask and used a walker as a result of his recent back surgery.
