Just How Big Is The Saudi Royal Family?

Recommended Posts

You only ever hear about the prominent people in Saudi - thos

e with the power and wealth which means the ruling family.

You want your own family trained in flying aircraft and helicopters just in case you need to bomb your own country or flee to Switzerland. Why do you think our Royal heirs are trained to fly aircraft and helios :)

I, for one, wholeheartedly welcome the support and cooperation of hunky members of the Saudi royal family in the unceasing fight for democratic values and women's rights

...and not chopping people's heads off, that too

Answer: Too big!

The family is estimated to be composed of 15,000 members, but the majority of the power and wealth is possessed by a group of only about 2,000.[2][3]

They tend to dominate on account of having all the heads and hands they were born with.

That's probably why they're the ones flying the planes and helicopters. :unsure:

This has to be a propaganda puff piece. Women can't even go out by themselves in Saudi.

Look everyone: the Saudis aren't cruel, medieval despots, they're our progressive friends in the war on terror.

It's to make you think a hundred or so in our Royal family is rather restrained.

would be true.

the BRITISH royal family number probably somewhere around the million mark if you trace it back far enough.

..and they are VERY protective of their bloodline.

so much so that the windsors are considered "auslander".

the real royalty know the windsors place was by marriage,not by blood.(some of the historian among you will probably know that bush/windsors are from the tribe of dan..not judah)..this is what the squabble is about.

not that I'm an avid supporter of scottish independece..I'm not, it has been handled incredibly badly..mostly by blair and his dictatorial attitude.

it's kind of put most people off having the real heir to the throne come down and rule "with a rod of iron".

(blairs misunsrestanding and way-too literal interpretation of "the increase of his government")..it does NOT mean nanny state socialism.

people now are likely to tell him to feck off and probably try to kill them.they have had enough of being told what to do.

ESPECIALLY by people who don't practice what they preach.

On his way back from a business trip to Saudi Mr B sat next to a prince on the plane. Young chap and v pleasant, doing a Master"s at Exeter, gave Mr B his card and invited him to stay next time. Mind you he must have been a pretty minor prince since he was slumming it in business class.

Her overalls look totally brand new, doubt she has actually ever flown a plane.

Literally thousands. It's like everybody even distantly related to our Queen getting to call themselves a prince or princess and be a member of the royal family.

I remember when I was at the Shaybah Oilfield and watching a film on UAE TV. It had Sophie Marceau in it and I got to see her t1ts which was a pleasant surprise - especially given my location at the time.

The Saudi State Television is a little bit more "severe"! There was no "fun" on it! I went there 20 years ago! :blink:
