The princess has worked earlier with the General Sports Authority where she is credited with a campaign to increase participation of Saudi women in sports.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud highlighted on Friday the good state of the mutual relations and wished to work to strengthen them in the future.

The royal order announcing the appointments was made late on Saturday by the crown prince, who is also the defense minister, on behalf of King Salman.

She is the daughter of Prince Bandar, who headed the Saudi diplomatic mission in Washington from 1983 to 2005.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Sulman (MBS) met with the Chinese President Xi Jinping here on Friday and declared his country's support to China for its active role in regional and worldwide affairs.

Therefore, Princess Reema is set to replace him as the 11th Ambassador of Saudi Arabia to the United States.

Saudi Vision 2030, spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, which supports women progressing and governing industries and fields all over the country, seems to be in full swing after this news.

The statement said that Borders made the decision to resign "and we agreed it was the right decision for all parties". The phrase - "speak my truth" - has become a central creed in the Time's Up and #MeToo movements to empower women.

She is member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Women in Sports Commission and of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee.

Prince Khalid, a son of the king who served as ambassador since 2017, had been expected to leave Washington for some time - particularly after the global outcry over Khashoggi tarnished the kingdom's reputation.

The Crown Prince's visit follows trips to India and Pakistan, which send millions of laborers to Saudi Arabia and are seeking closer economic ties.

Princess Reema has been championing the cause of women empowerment in the Kingdom strictly governed by the Islamic Sharia law where women are considered to have limited role in the society.

The project - worth more than ten billion dollars - and its other investments could also help Saudi Arabia regain its place as the top oil exporter to China. She also continued her education there, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Museum studies from George Washington University.

"China has the right to carry out anti-terrorism and de-extremization work for its national security", the crown prince was quoted as saying on Chinese television, media reports said.
