You want a sample from the media of Saudi princes?

Jihad Al-Khazin holds the dubious honor of being the only person to have edited both, the mouthpiece of Prince Khalid bin Sultan, Al-Hayat, and the mouthpiece of King Salman and his sons, Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat: "I shook hands with King Abdullah [of Jordan] and I told him as he was leaving: we are with you.  I shook hands with president Sisi, and told him that I will be in Egypt in a few days, and I shook hands with Queen Rania".  Word for word.

"صافحت الملك عبدالله وهو خارج وقلت له: نحن معك، وصافحت الرئيس السيسي وقلت له أنني سأكون في مصر بعد أيام، وصافحت الملكة رانيا".
