Prince Khalid has governed Makkah region at two different intervals. He has governed the region from 2007-2013 and from 2015 onward. He has also in the past governed Asir Province. He is a member of the House of Saud.
Prince Khalid was born in Riyadh on 24 February 1940. He is the third son of King Faisal. His mother is Haya bint Turki bin Abdulaziz Al Turki, a member of Al Jiluwi clan.
In 1948, Prince Khalid began to attend Model school in Taif to receive secondary education. Like King Faisal's other children, Prince Khalid was educated abroad after completing secondary education in Saudi Arabia. He attended the Hun School of Princeton, New Jersey and graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in political economy from the University of Oxford in 1966.
After returning to Saudi Arabia, Prince Khalid served as director general of the presidency of youth welfare in the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs in 1967. His term lasted until April 1971 when he was appointed the governor of Asir Province.
According to a leaked Wikileaks cable, Prince Khalid went to extraordinary lengths to renovate his late father's palace to host a party for Prince Charles, during the Prince of Wales' visit to the kingdom in 2006.
In June 2011, Prince Khalid presided at the opening of the Rabigh's expansion of its desalination plant.

On the other hand, Prince Khalid is stated to have some advantages in contrast to his brothers as a result of his long-term tenure as governor in that he is much known to the people on a personal level.

In 1999, he founded Painting and Patronage to "build and foster valuable bridges of cultural, artistic and educational understanding between the Arab world and the international community".
