The New York Times, Reuters and the Financial Times reported that the prince's return had sparked speculation about his role in the kingdom's crisis management efforts following the worldwide outcry over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The source speaking to CNN didn't clarify the reasons and significance of the prince's return or if he had indeed sought assurances for his safety after spending two and a half months overseas.
"A way must be found to achieve both goals on the Khashoggi issue because the larger problem is Iran, and we have to make sure that Iran does not continue the malign activities". "This is what is understood from the prosecutor's statement".
In the wake of Saudi Arabia's retreat from its initial claim that the journalist died after getting into a fight at the consulate, Erdogan wrote that major questions remain: who ordered the killing; where's his body; who received the journalist's remains?
Khashoggi disappeared October 2 after visiting the consulate in Istanbul to get documents he needed to marry his Turkish fiancee.
Khashoggi, at the time of his death was a resident of the United States, contributing to the Washington Post, having fallen out with the Riyadh regime.
If true, the murder of a journalist inside a diplomatic facility would constitute nothing less than an act of state terror meant to intimidate journalists, dissidents, and exiled critics the world over.
The murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi could alter the power dynamic in the Middle East by strengthening Turkey's influence at Saudi Arabia's expense as they compete for leadership of the Islamic world, analysts say.

The president said Turkey's efforts led the world to learn Khashoggi was killed in cold blood by a death squad and established his murder was premeditated.
The latest details of the case that has gained world-wide attention comes as two countries added to the growing worldwide outcry over the killing.
Cengiz lamented that without his body, Khashoggi's loved ones had been unable to hold funeral prayers.
Activists erected a mock street sign on Friday in central London, just outside the gates of Saudi Arabia's embassy in the United Kingdom capital.
"Today I am inviting the worldwide community to take serious and practical steps to reveal the truth and to prosecute those involved in a court of law".
Another informed source told The Washington Post Bolton did not signal that he endorsed the Crown Prince's characterisation of Khashoggi during the call.
"The incident that happened is very painful, for all Saudis", the crown prince, said during an economic conference in Riyadh.
"The Trump administration has taken a position that is devoid of moral foundation", she wrote, adding that "there will be no cover-up".
The violent murder of a prominent journalist and commentator on foreign soil is a grave violation of human rights and a disturbing escalation of the crackdown on dissent in Saudi Arabia, whose government in recent years has jailed numerous writers, journalists, human rights advocates, and lawyers in a sweeping assault on free expression and association.
