Succession and activities
In August 2009, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy identified him as a potential successor to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. In 2012, Foreign Policy identified him as one of four potential heirs apparent after Crown Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz. However, it added that he was much less well-known than the other three candidates.
In a statement by the Royal Court, it was announced that Prince Hazloul had died abroad on 29 September 2012. His body was taken to Jeddah on 30 September 2012. Funeral prayers for him were held on the same day at the Grand Mosque in Mecca.
King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and Bahraini Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa sent a cable of condolences to King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and Crown Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on the demise of Prince Hazloul bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
