More so, Sara bint Mashoor is the third wife of the crown prince; Mohammed Bin Salman. In this piece, we take a closer look at her profile as a wife, mother, and philanthropist. Let’s go!
Biography Sara Bint Mashoor Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud
Sara Bint Mashoor Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud was born—Sara bint Talal—in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 1973 to parents Prince Talal bin Abdulaziz and Moudie bint Abdul Mohsen Alangary from the House of Saud.

In July 2012 Sara bint Mashoor voiced her staunch support for reforms and anti-corruption laws in Saudi Arabia.

The circumstances leading to that move were conflicts with her father at the time. Sara bint Mashoor had to be protected by her uncle, the late Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz who remained a staunch rival of her father until he died in 2012.
