Culture minister Prince Badr Bin Abdullah Bin Mohammed Bin Nasir Bin Saud Bin Ibrahim Bin Abdallah Bin Farhan Bin Saud (to give him his full name) has been close to Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) for at least a decade. Badr is a great-grandson of Nasir Bin Saud (died 1939), who accompanied Ibn Saud on the 1902 raid on Riyadh. In December 2015, Badr was appointed chairman of media conglomerate Saudi Research and Marketing Group, which is closely tied to the Al-Salman. However, he was in MBS’s orbit some years before that.
