When you have so many princes, it could just be the case that the one writing the letters wasn't happy with the line of succession and how that went, so he's stirring up trouble.

as in they're going to be missing out on the pot of gold.

Easy to write an article when no names are mentioned too.

I was drinking Johnny Walker with a prince on my first night in Riyadh. Well impressed until I realised he was 1/5,000

There are, as someone points out, thousands of these princelings. Of course some of them are disgruntled !
