Dubai: Photos of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince have been going viral on social networking sites as residents across the Gulf share the moment when the young royal surprised campers.

Bandar Al Enezi and his eight cousins were visiting the Al Ula mountains last weekend when they saw Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman touring the archaeological sites.

The carved mountain rocks in the archeological site of Mada’in Saleh is registered as a Unesco World Heritage Site, and was the first Saudi site to make the list.

Mada’in Saleh is one of the most important cities of the Nabataeans civilization, after its capital, Petra.

Al Enezi told Al Arabiya that everyone was quick to snap photos of the royal with their mobile phones, and said that the crown prince did not mind posing for selfies.

“We shared the photos with our friends and it was only one hour later that we found the photos have spread all over social media, this was because the photos were spontaneous and natural,” Al Enezi told Al Arabiya
