I also agree that when you ar dealing with a subject for long time and you believe it, you can easily ''guess'' the questions. She doesn't give some kind of exams when giving her interviews, she is trying - I believe- to pass her message.

Personnally I believe that journalists do give questions. I'm sure for example that the media relations division at the White House never says yes for an interview (or at least not very often) without having the questions. I remember that there was an interview Queen Rania gave this fall on a US channel (I think maybe on GMA or MSNBC, with Katie Couric, bu again can't remember exactly) and it was too perfect to be completely natural. But this is how public relations work. And whether she's usually given the questions or not, she's very well prepared, and she's very eloquent. I mean, I think very few people could have the same results even with the questions given.
However, I've been following the Queen for the past 5 years, I've watched many of her interviews, and I think that she has made a huge progress. That's what I mean by "her communications team makes a very good job". She obviously has outstanding skills for what she does, but I'm pretty sure that she's been coached too.

This makes sense, especially if you think of all these minor actors or singers that demand to be given the questions before each interview; or else, they just refuse to do it. Nobody in a position like QR's would risk to go there unprepared and get exposed to severe and/or adverse criticism.

don't forget when she does several interviews for one cause like Goal 1, the questions become repetitive, so she's had plenty of opportunities to rehearse her answers because she has to repeat them so many times. I've stopped watching as many interviews because sometimes it seems we're not hearing anything new at all.

Here's an article I found really interesting. It's always great to get some first-hand impressions from those who were actually part of the event.

JP Rangaswami: thoughts from Davos Part 3


Davos is about bringing an eclectic group of enthusiastic people together for a high-intensity burst of activity, providing them access to expertise and to empowerment, and giving them an environment where stuff happens.
Take for example Queen Rania's Jordan Education Initiative, conceived at WEF in 2006, and now a full-blown and successful working machine. Was that the end of it? No. She's moved on, taken things further. It's now the Global Education Initiative, focused on the 72 million children who aren't in school. Is that elitist? A talking shop? I don't think so. Queen Rania's an amazing woman and one of her sayings really got to me: The saddest thing is not death, it's when your dreams die when you are alive.

I really enjoyed this video! Rania was so relaxed and witty (in the end)!

Thank you for the video, Reeda! I was surprised to see George Soros. Never knew how he looked. He was romantically linked to Q.Noor in the past.

After K.Hussein's death, dear. Many years after that actually. I think they haven't been together since 2006 or 2007, I'm not sure.

I haven't heard about the WEFA before, i'm watching a bit of it on the news now with Bill and Melinda Gates. It looks interesting.
