Early life and education

Born in 1977 in Paris,[2] Khalid bin Bandar is the son of Bandar bin Sultan and Princess Haifa bint Faisal.[3] He attended Eton College before going up to Pembroke College, Oxford, where he graduated in Oriental studies. He also attended Sandhurst Military Academy, graduating as a commissioned officer,[4] before becoming a post-graduate at Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.[5][6]


Khalid bin Bandar started his career working at the United Nations' department of political affairs in New York.[4] He worked for three years as an advisor to the Saudi Ambassador in Washington DC. He is the executive chairman of Dayım Holding[7] founded in 2006. He is also an acting general manager of Al Hama Company, a Saudi-based retail company, and the chairman of Byblos Real Estate Development Company based in the United Arab Emirates.[8]

In June 2017, he became the Saudi ambassador to Germany.[5][9] In 2019, he was made the Saudi Ambassador to the United Kingdom.[1]

Personal life

Khalid dated and lived with Vanessa Hayden, the future Vanessa Trump, from 1998 to 2001.[10] They intended to marry, but broke up after September 11 attacks when he left the U.S. after his father was suspected of having indirect ties to the hijackers.[11]

In Oxford in March 2011, Khalid married Lucy Caroline Cuthbert (b. 1982),[5] daughter of John Aidan Cuthbert, of Beaufront Castle, Hexham, Northumberland, and Lady Victoria Lucy Diana (daughter of Hugh Percy, 10th Duke of Northumberland),[12] and thus niece of Ralph Percy, 12th Duke of Northumberland, at a ceremony attended by a handful of guests.[13][14]
