The red carpet has been rolled out at Buckingham Palace and Number 10 Downing Street in London for Mohammed Bin Salman on his first trip abroad since he became Saudi Crown Prince.

The 32-year old became heir to the throne after a palace crisis last June.

Since then, he’s continued his country’s involvement in the war in Yemen, launched the blockade of Qatar and began what his government calls an anti-corruption drive.

Dozens of high profile princes and businessmen were arrested and held in a hotel accused of corruption.

His country is accused by human rights organisations of widespread abuses, and has been criticised for its conduct of the war in Yemen, a conflict which has caused a humanitarian catastrophe.

So what will be the impact of his visit, both for Saudi Arabia and the UK?
