"Prince Salman still looks the part, his prominent facial features and stocky build most closely resembling the founding monarch among all the sons...He is variously described as disciplined, active, austere, sober and traditional but not hard-line. He is considered generally popular with the family and the public, and has traveled abroad widely." Wait: MacFarquhar is impressed that the prince looks like his father? How odd, huh? I mean, how many sons do you know resemble their fathers? This must be a sign of genius for sure. Let me guess: introduce a Saudi toddler prince to Neil MacFarquhar and he will be impressed and charmed.
