He is the eldest son of Saudi Crown Prince Salman’s third wife and has spent most of his life in his father’s shadow.
He holds a law degree from King Saud University in Riyadh and has served as a mentor to his father.
As defence minister, he is a key player in Saudi Arabia’s ongoing war against the Houthi rebels and is said to have played a key role in isolating Qatar.
