King Salman is known for being politically conservative. He even maintained a small jail on his palace grounds where he would lock up 'wayward royals' according to the Washington Post.
The university has about 65,000 students of both sexes. The female students have their own disciplinary panel, and supervising sessions with male tutors have to be conducted by CCTV cameras, according to its website.

In 2008, age 23, Deputy Crown Prince bin Salman joined the Saudi Cabinet. Using his background in private sector finance, he worked for the Experts Commission, which advises the government on technical financial issues.

Saudi law stipulates that every member of the Council must be "a Saudi national by birth and descent; well-known for righteousness and capability" and "not previously convicted for a crime of immorality or dishonor."

In December 2009, age 24, the Deputy Crown Prince's political career really began. He became a special advisor to his father, who was still the governor of the Riyadh Province. From here he quickly climbed the ladder, becoming secretary-general of the Riyadh Competitive Council and a member of the board of trustees for Albir Society in the Riyadh region within a year.

Saudi Arabia declared the bombing campaign was over on 21 April this year, with Saudi officials saying they would begin Operation Restoring Hope instead, but the war continues to rage in the region. 

In 2015, at only age 29, he also began meeting world leaders and diplomats, including US Secretary of State John Kerry to discuss bilateral relations.

The arms trade of Western governments into the Middle East has been criticised by humanitarian charities. Last year the US approved a $1.29 billion sale of smart bombs to Saudi Arabia.

In June 2015 he met with Russian leader Vladimir Putin to discuss the ongoing crisis in Syria, a war that Saudi Arabia has been reluctant to involve itself in.

Russia soon launched an intense bombing campaign against Syrian rebels, but claimed it had withdrawn in March this year. 

By January 2016 Deputy Crown Prince bin Salman courted more Western attention with an interview with The Economist, in which called Iranian protests (pictured) against executions "strange" and said he wanted a "Thatcher revolution" of privatisation for Saudi Arabia.

He also said he was supporting the idea of more women in the workforce

In March 2016 he gave another interview to Bloomberg, where he outlined his "$2 trillion megafund" plan to reduce the country's reliance on oil and fundamentally change the Saudi economy. The kingdom currently has a deficit of about $100 billion, and oil prices are still well below $50 a barrel.

Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad added that his economic restructure was at the encouragement of his father

But by April 2016, not everyone is convinced. The Independent reported that German Intelligence labelled him a "political gambler" who could destabilise the Arab world.
