Khalid Al Faisal Al Saud (Arabic: خالد الفيصل بن عبد العزيز آل سعود‎) (born 24 February 1940) is the governor of the Makkah Province and a member of the House of Saud.


Prince Khalid was born in Riyadh on 24 February 1940. He is a son of King Faisal. His mother is Haya bint Turki bin Abdulaziz Al Turki, a member of Al Jiluwi clan. In 1948, Prince Khalid began to attend Model school in Taif to receive secondary education.Like King Faisal's other children, Prince Khalid was educated abroad after completing secondary education in Saudi Arabia. He attended the Hun School of Princeton, New Jersey and graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in political economy from the University of Oxford in 1966.


Political career

After returning to Saudi Arabia, Prince Khalid served as director general of the Presidency of Youth Welfare in the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs in 1967.His term lasted until April 1971 when he appointed the governor of Asir Province.

Governor of Asir Province

Khalid al Faisal was governor of the Asir Province in southwestern Saudi Arabia from 1971 to 2007.

Governor of Makkah Province

On 16 May 2007, Khalid was appointed Governor of the Makkah Province by King Abdullah,replacing Prince Abdul Majeed bin Abdulaziz who died in office. The province includes the Muslim holy city of Makkah and the second largest city in Saudi Arabia, Jeddah. In 2010, he ordered hotels, restaurants, shops and wedding halls in the province to drop all their non-Arabic names and use Arabic only for signboards. As governor, he plays a major role in managing the annual Hajj in Makkah, the world's largest religious pilgrimage. According to leaked diplomatic cables, he traveled to Beirut in 2009 to meet with Lebanese parliamentarians. In June 2011, Prince Khalid presided at the opening of the Rabigh's expansion of its desalination plant.


Prince Khalid is widely believed to be respected in the family, appreciated for his combination of both modern and traditional sensibilities. He has been mentioned as a future king when succession in the Al Saud passes on to the grandsons of King Abdulaziz. Prince Khalid was again considered to be among the possible contenders after Prince Nayef's death in June 2012. However, the al Faisal brothers, Turki al Faisal and Saud al Faisal, are said to be regarded unfavorably within the royal family due to their perceived air of intellectual superiority. On the other hand, Prince Khalid is stated to have some advantages in contrast to his brothers as a result of his long-term tenure as governor in that he is much known to the people on the personal level.


Khalid al Faisal was celebrated by the World Travel Awards as the World Travel Personality of the Year in 2010. This award is given to a personality whose achievements support the industry.

He was named the best Arab personality in the field of solving issues related to Arab youth in 2012. The award was given by the Arab Youth Media. Forum, which is currently being held in Manama under the sponsorship of Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa.
