Even if it was for a few minutes, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz was at last forced to act like a commoner, that too in a foreign country.

On his recent trip to Moscow, the Saudi king had to walk down a flight of golden stairs of an escalator because it stopped working midway! And as luck would have it, someone circulated a video of the ‘poor’ (how ironic!) king walking down the steps, thereby creating a hysterical buzz in the social media.

Needless to say the Twitteratti joined in, and soon memes and funny comments started pouring in. One of them said, “The poor guy had to walk.” While another user thought the incident was really a “royal reception.”



According to Bloomberg, the Saudi king brought an entourage of 1,500 people, a golden escalator and his own carpets on the four-day visit to Russia. A plane carrying supplies and food was flying between Riyadh and Moscow daily, and the Saudi government has booked two entire luxury hotels for their visit.

It is to be remembered that the Saudi leader is on a grand visit to Russia, where he is slated to sign a slew of arms and energy deals with the Russian president Vladimir Putin, as both the countries seek to deepen their amity.
