Re: King Salman
But why does the Saudi Arabian American embassy us the style His Majesty when they refer to the King? https://www.saudiembassy.net/news/his-majesty-king-salman-oversees-peace-agreement-between-ethiopia-and-eritrea-jeddah
Yes, he is never referred to as Majesty. Majesty is a style that King Fahd felt was incompatible with the Muslim faith. Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques is used instead.
Do you mean that he is referred to as King, but without to be styled His Majesty?
In the photo of King Salman at the top of the message board he is referred to as HM King Salman. This is incorrect because in 1986 King Fahd ceased the use of the title "Majesty" and adopted "Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques" instead, and this has been the title adopted by his successors (except King Khalid).
