Their Majesties visit the Swedish space institute. Most of the last day of the State Visit is spent in the northern town of Kiruna with a visit to an ice hotel and some tourist attractions, before the royal couple depart.

Interview with Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America. Her Majesty speaks on a number of issues including honour killings and the situation in Iraq.

Queen Rania travels to Dearborn, Michigan, where she makes the keynote speech at the annual banquet of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) - one of the largest grass-roots organizations advocating Arab-American rights.

I may post the interview at the Articles, Speeches & Int. thread we have going. It is very good.

The last day of her three-day visit to the US. Her Majesty attends the forum "The Jordanian Gateway to Business Opportunity in a rapidly Changing Middle East", where Jordanian officials and Jordanian and American senior business leaders discuss Jordan's new model of economic reforms and the economic growth it witnessed in the past four years.

Interview with Queen Rania on CNBC's Capitol Report (again excellent interview which might find its way to the Interviews thread very soon).

In the evening Queen Rania attends a gala reception and a special musical performance by Jordanian pianist Zade Dirani, to mark the official launching of the Jordan expose at the National Museum of Natural History entitled "Celebrating Jordan's History and Culture" where a series of lectures and film on Jordan will be held offering an opportunity to better understand Jordan’s rich cultural treasures and heritage.

Thanks for breaking the monotony in this thread with pictures, Balqis...although, I know that isn't the reason why you are putting them in the thread. :) Looks to me, Rania was very busy during the month of October of 2003. I'm still trying to figure out how you determine if someone is hard working by looking at the picture? I mean, when I look at the pictures and the dates, I know that she must have been really busy.

Hopefully the information I am providing as well will help. We will see

It's a nice and fun experiment nonetheless :)

Rania does whatever other European royal ladies do. Nothing more, nothing less. Unfortunately and as usually people notice only her shopping sprees and the way she dresses. If she dresses tasteless, she represents Jordan in bad light. If she looks fine, people are angry because Her Majesty spend all money on her clothes. It is impossible to please all and everyone.

Note, Mrs. Putina (the wife of Russian President) got a huge squal of critisizm for the way she dresses from foreign media.

Your assessment of the situation is superficial (sorry to tell you this). The issue is more profound than just to either to dress super elegant or to dress so poorly...

The thread topic is "Why Queen Rania Is a Hard Working Queen." Its intent is to explore what Queen Rania does for her country.

Dear Monamona,
I would like to tell you that my opnion is not so superficial. This issue is overblown by media and other parties, and Her Majesty is partially responsible of assisting them. I believe that she does her best in fulfilling her duties. The only thing she has neglected is too much of attention, which serves both negative and positive sides. She needs to find the right balance in this matter.
I do respect her for being a mother and a wife.

Well said, Al_Bina. I have been saying the media focus too much on what she's wearing instead of what she is doing. Welcome to TRF by the way.:)

I just heard that. I wasn't trying to say it was true. But I wonder if it is.
