Qatari sheikha to pay for Saudi man’s wedding

A Saudi man who delayed his marriage because he did not have enough money for the wedding decided to write to a Saudi prince to seek his help.

In a message on Twitter, the man said he needed around SR15,000 ($4,000) to go ahead with his wedding arrangements. He asked Saudi Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd, a member of the Gulf Kingdom’s royal family, to help him. He left his mobile phone number to support his request.

"A few days later, the man was surprised when he received a call from a Qatari Sheikha (princess) instead of Prince Abdul Aziz,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Arar News reported.

"She told him she would pay all his wedding expenses and asked him to pray for her ill father. She said she does not want her name to be revealed.”
