Bahrain's King Hamad bin Issa al-Khalifa has skipped a Gulf Arab summit with U.S. President Barack Obama, and will instead join Britain's Queen Elizabeth at a horse show and also discuss bilateral relations with her.Like Saudi Arabia's King Salman, King Hamad has decided to send his crown prince to the United States in his stead, in a perceived snub over Obama's drive to reach a nuclear deal with Iran, the arch-rival of America's traditional Gulf Arab allies.A media representative at the horse show told Reuters that King Hamad was expected at the high society event which begins Wednesday at Windsor Castle outside London and will be attended by the British royal family.
