Prince Fahd said what made the King so happy that day was the sight of citizens on the sidewalks to greet him. It is great blessing for a king to have his people love him so deeply.

MY friend in Tabuk suggested that we go early to the sports stadium where the people of the city were going to receive Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman so that we can get around possible traffic blocks when the royal motorcade leaves the airport.

We started from the hotel four hours before the ceremony was scheduled to begin. The first thing I noticed was the long line of people waiting on the sidewalks to greet the King when the royal procession would pass. When we reached the stadium, I found it completely full with enthusiastic citizens even though several hours were left for the King to arrive.

The people of Tabuk were excited to see the King and greet him. The air was filled with festive joy as they waited for the King’s arrival. When the monarch finally reached the stadium, I saw great happiness on his face.

King Salman’s facial expressions always reflected what was in his mind. That night, his face was full of happiness.

After the end of the ceremony, while we were waiting for the car to take us back to the hotel, the motorcade of Tabuk Emir Prince Fahd Bin Sultan passed by.

We were surprised when the motorcade stopped in front of us and the prince got off his car. He thanked us profusely for accepting the invitation to attend the ceremony. We congratulated him for successfully organizing the reception and his beautiful speech on the occasion.

When I said I saw happiness on the King’s face, Prince Fahd said what made the King so happy that day was the sight of citizens on the sidewalks to greet him. It is great blessing for a king to have his people love him so deeply.

The people of Tabuk were quite emotional in their love for the King and his Crown Prince. And the emir of the region did a fantastic job in arranging the welcome ceremony for King.
