Crown Prince Sultan of Saudi Arabia dies

Painting & Patronage were deeply sorry to learn of the death of Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia.

His Royal Highness honoured Painting & Patronage with his presence and patronage during the Portuguese-Saudi Arabian Painting & Patronage programme held in Riyadh in 2007.

Prince Sultan has been a central figure in Saudi decision-making and became Defence Minister in 1962 and Crown Prince in 2005. His Royal Highness served the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for many years with great dignity, distinction and dedication.

Prince Sultan’s contribution to the prosperity and development of the Kingdom will long be remembered. Painting & Patronage would like to offer the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its people its sincere condolences at this sad time and asking God to grant Prince Sultan everlasting life in heaven. Riyadh – 24 October 2011.
