    (ANSAmed) - Rabat, July 9 - The Saudi royal family will not be holidaying in Morocco this year following recent tension between the two countries over the 2026 FIFA World Cup, 'Al Ayam' reports.

    King Mohammed VI of Morocco has made no mystery of his displeasure at the failure of his Saudi counterpart to back the country's bid to host the tournament. King Salman owns a sumptuous palace in Tangiers where he holidays for a month each year.

    During that time he normally books a further 900 rooms and at least 400 vehicles for his entourage.

    'Al Ayam' reports that this year the city will be half empty in August, with many 5-star hotels having seen their bookings cancelled. (ANSAmed)
