Outgoing Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef hands over the post to his successor the new Crown Prince, and son of King Salman, Mohammed bin Salman earlier today.

In six steps, Mohammed bin Salman, the young Saudi Royal who will turn 32 this August, became the second in command after his father.

The footage which Newsweek Middle East obtained from a video circulating social media outlets show Prince MBS, as many call him, sharing hands with bin Nayef, before kissing his hand, then kneeling for the older royal’s blessings before rising again as the new crown prince.
