Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal, CEO of Kingdom Holding, escaped harm as his car was written off in Saudi Arabia this weekend.



Princess Ameera Al Taweel, wife of Saudi Arabia’s Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Alsaud, has confirmed her husband is ‘doing well’ post a horrific car crash over the weekend.

The princess announced the news on her Twitter account in Arabic, citing that the CEO of Kingdom Holdings is safe.

According to reports, Prince Al Waleed, the world’s richest Arab with a personal fortune of around $18 billion, escaped  death when his car, a black Range Rover, flipped over three times of the Jeddah-Makkah highway.
