Jordan’s Prince Hassan bin Talal Turns Seventy

  March 20, 2017 at 6:00 am by

HRH Prince Hassan bin Talal of Jordan, uncle of the current King, today celebrates his seventieth birthday.

He was born in Amman in 1947 as the third son of King Talal of Jordan and his wife Queen Zein. The majority of the Prince’s schooling was undertaken in England, where Hassan also attended university, gaining a Master of Arts in Oriental Studies at Christ Church, Oxford University.

It was during his schooling in London that Prince Hassan met his future wife, the Pakistani-Jordanian Sarvath Ikramullah. They married in 1968 and went on to have four children: Princesses Rahma, Samaya and Badiya, and Prince Rashid.

Prince Hassan was the Crown Prince of Jordan for over three decades during the reign of his brother, Hussein I, though his nephew – Abdullah – succeeded the throne in 1999 upon King Hussein’s death. The Prince has been a strong support for the Jordanian monarchy for many years, and he and his wife often attend foreign royal events representing King Abdullah (and through their own personal relationships with their European counterparts).
