Cracks have appeared in Bani Saud’s façade of unity. While the aged King Salman may have elevated his favorite son Muhammad bin Salman to be the crown prince, other princes have not taken this well. A number of senior princes are deeply unhappy with this. They are also unhappy over the shabby manner in which Muhammad bin Nayif was treated. Look for internal trouble ahead.
