Saudi Arabia's first female ambassador officially met the President of the United States yesterday...

Just last week, HRH Princess Reema Bint Bandar Al Saud began her duties as Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, eventually making headlines across the globe — and with good reason.

The regional royal is the Kingdom's first female ambassador to the country and one week into her role, Princess Reema already met with President Donald Trump and presented her credentials as Saudi Arabia's top diplomat in Washington.

Taking the news to her Twitter account, Princess Reema wrote: "Presented credentials today at the White House. Conveyed the well wishes of Kingdom's Leadership. Looking forward to working on strengthening and solidifying the historic Saudi — U.S partnership."

Princess Reema succeeds Prince Khaled bin Salman in the role, who is the brother of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. He is currently appointed as Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Defence Minister.
