Crown Prince Sayyid is the eldest son of Sultan Haitham bin Tariq – a cousin of the late Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who ruled the Arabian country for almost 50 years. Celebrity Net Worth once estimated the late sultan’s net worth at a whopping US$900 million.

According to The Washington Post, Crown Prince Sayyid’s dad was appointed sultan based upon a letter left by the late Sultan Qaboos. The Omani line of succession had no direct heir to the throne after one of the longest-tenured world leaders passed away in 2020.
