Today His Royal Highness Prince Turki Al Faisal, Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United Kingdom and Ireland, son of the late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia, visited MG Rover Group at Longbridge.   Underlining His Royal Highness’ keen interest to see car manufacturing at first hand Prince Al Faisal toured the key stages of car production at Longbridge. He saw the full product range of MG and Rover models and, as a classic car enthusiast and collector, His Royal Highness received a personal tour of the Heritage centre, which houses cars from each period of the company’s history. "We are delighted the Ambassador has visited MG Rover at Longbridge and shown such interest in our company and its products," said John Edwards, director sales and marketing, MG Rover.   The company is no stranger to Royal visits. Many high profile members of the Royal household and VIPs have visited in the past two years. His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, HRH The Princess Royal and HRH Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex have all toured the facilities and met with members of the workforce. The British Royal family have both MG and Rover vehicles within their car portfolio. Other senior diplomats from the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia accompanied His Royal Highness on this prestigious visit.

I feel a quote competition coming on:

"And this, sir, is what happens when you take a Rover and get it really angry"

I wonder why Prince Turki Al Faisal is so interested? Curiousity, or [wild speculation mode] a genuine interest in setting up car (MGR?) production in Saudi Arabia?[/wild speculation mode]
