Hamad was invited to the royal wedding of Prince William of Wales and Kate Middleton. He declined amidst protests by human rights activists who had pledged to disrupt his stay in Britain because of his violent response to demonstrators.

Bahrain’s human rights situation remains critical in the wake of the brutal crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in 2011. The king established an independent inquiry to investigate these potential abuses, but it failed to fully implement the inquiry’s recommendations – namely holding senior officials accountable for crimes such as torture or for failing to free protesters who were jailed for exercising their right to free expression and peaceful assembly. Clashes between police and protesters continue, as do reports of deaths from beatings and excessive use of tear gas. The government continues to impose severe restrictions on access for international rights groups like Human Rights Watch.
