yes since their trip to the US this past September.
Im looking forward to seeing pictures from this trip. There was a record number of pictures of sad events (funerals, memorials etc) this year, not to mention endless conferences and summits. Oh and lets not forget the postponed state visit to the Netherlands.
I'd give anything to see a little more glamour. There's still more than a week left in 2005, Im still hopefull.

Queen Rania looks gorgeous. Its been so long since I've seen her hair in an updo. I think she has worn this jacket before, during her trip to the US in September.

Let me correct myself...QR didnt wear that blue jacket during her trip to the US in September. She wore a grey one with a similar neckline.
This blue jacket looks familiar to me because its part of the Fall 2005 Roland Mouret collection.

Thank you for the pictures fanletizia and purple platinum.
The Queen looks wonderful as usual but I'd have loved to see her wear more colour during this trip. Her fall wardrobe this year has been all black and grey (aside from the the black she wore after the Amman bombing)
