In some of the recent pictures, Ali had put on some weight. In the pictures that were posted of him and Rym in woods, he looks to have lost some weight.

If they're having an intimate wedding, I'm guessing they won't broadcast their wedding? I would so like to see their wedding live. :) Did they broadcast QR and KA's wedding?

I hope there will be some good pictures, too. To think that there were a few doubters that didn't think they would make it this far...I'm happy they have.

Actually Josephine, they are married now, and are expecting their first baby in October. From my understanding, they met when Rym and 2 other reporters were asked to leave Iraq right before the war, and they all ended up in Jordan. This is where her and Ali first met. I thought this thread was closed. My very first post is #171. That was over a year ago.

Rym's grandmother was the first one who knew that Rym is going to marry PA ,
According to this story , she took a photo of PA to her grandma in Cairo and told her that she loves this man and her grandma approved without knowing that he is a prince (he looks manly and handsome) she said


PRINCESS RIM:
In a break with traditional protocol Jordan King Abdullah II visited the house of U.N. Special Envoy Lakhdar Brahimi in Paris to ask the hand of his daughter Rim in marriage to his half-brother Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein. The discreet visit to a second floor apartment in a quiet Paris suburb was arranged to coincide with the return of the Special Envoy from a crucial mission to Iraq. Rim Brahimi is an accomplished reporter for CNN who covered news of the conflict in Iraq as well as feature stories like the prize winning series about the Moslem Haj -- a sensitive exploration of her own feelings as an Arab Moslem woman who grew up mainly in the West while visiting Islam's holiest sites with millions of Pilgrims. She had worked for various media groups including a stint as an accredited correspondent at U.N. Headquarters. Her professional talent was matched by dynamic charm and sharp wit. Prince Ali's mother was the late King Hussein's third wife. Alia, who came from the distinguished Toukan Palestinian family, died in a helicopter crash. A graduate of prestigious military colleges, he is in charge of King Abdullah's personal security.
The Jordanian grapevine has it that the love affair grew as the CNN reporter moved to Amman initially following the fall of Baghdad. Rim, who is fluent in English, French, Arabic and Italian, made quite an impact on the Jordanian media -- and social scene -- with her record of courageous and enlightened reporting. She rarely invoked the name of her prominent father who sometimes, like while serving in Afghanistan, was not able to follow her reports. Rim wanted her beloved grandmother to be the first to know. She visited her in Cairo with a photo of her Prince Charming. The grandmother enthusiastically approved even before knowing he was a real prince. "You love him, and he looks manly and handsome," was her response. Rim then sped to Paris to get her parents' blessing. Her mother, a Croatian, also agreed, pending the approval of the father who was still in Baghdad handling other intricate issues like the composition of a transitional government and a framework for the future of Iraq. A time was set for a stopover in Paris en route to New York. King Abdullah, who postponed a visit to Washington, took an exceptional step of visiting Paris for a few hours to make an official approach. On Friday 23 April, the Jordanian Royal Palace made an official announcement indicating that the wedding date is 7 September.
Congratulations, dear Rim. You deserve the best. A real princess met a real prince. MABROUK.


Here is the link:) :)

I love the fact that great care was taken in asking her hand in marriage. I thought that her Mother was Jogoslavian!:) I saw it in Rym's face. She's lovely by the way and Prince Ali has certainly met his match.:)

The Jordanian street is not surprised with the news of the engagement of the protection Forces Commander the private property prince Ali Bin Al Hussein ,By an amount what the addax of the daughter of the great diplomat was surprised with the distinguished its media Algerian fiancée And the special envoy of the United Nations to Iraq Lakhdar Librahimi, the former Algerian Foreign Minister.

Princess Rim Ali, according to her name and her title the two new according to the royal traditions applied by her in Jordan, Where the prince fiancee grants the princess title the prince marriage contract state on her, A known media and famous face through its looking like and daily on the international American news channel CNN. Where she was making until in the middle of last year a wandering correspondent of the station in the danger regions and the tension international, before the state reaches her an office manager . Where she establishes with its father and its family and where on a limited scale last Friday the ceremonies of its engagement took place on the young Jordanian prince, who captivated its heart before an about two years.


Princess Rym Ali journalist and professional and shiny obtained international prizes in press and media competitions, Because of its surplus boldness in its work that reaches sometimes the risk limit, as that it masters the talk by three languages she French and English and Spanish, And she has political opinions are a sign in the Arab and international case, She for example is not embarrassed of showing its declared hatred to the presidents of the dictatorial regimes around the world, Often the intimates transferred from it vocational and family its eternal hatred to the deposed Iraqi regime president Saddam Hussein, Where she describes it continuously that it is a reckless dictator that led his countries and his nation to the abyss and the destruction and the destruction several times.

And he is a situation it may share in it with its speaker, who any intimacy of sons did not appear the president of the previous former Iraqi regime, Also its care did not record the meeting with them in all sports occasions, Despite that Uday the oldest son to Saddam was occupying a sports position in his countries, he resembles the position of the Jordanian prince, Also she did not witness the last five years any of the contacts and the sports meetings between Amman and Baghdad.

and it well known about the new Jordanian princess, her severe support of all woman cases, And she a support reached the limit of those cases excitement on the screen through their media work in CNN, Where she went around many of the world countries for the knowledge on what the woman suffers from a suffering, because of the digestion of their rights in the different fields.

And the information that they gathered by " Elaph " say, Rim Al Ibrahimi has come to Amman for this reason between the stations that she visited, Where the polemic was burning in Jordan because of an exciting item in the Jordanian law , Where the item 340 allows for the man with the killing of the female from his ineligible spouses who repair by the adultery state, Where the killer benefits immediately from the judicial excuse the shop, then he does not judge


With its execution before the judicial modifications include that item, Because of the wide resistance of it where prince Ali the most prominent enthusiasts for the cancellation of that item, because of its wide sympathy with the victims the females Ialouati was falling by the hundreds yearly.

And the information confirm, that prince Ali who led year demonstration, 2001 for the condemnation of the refusal of the parliament dropping the legal subject, Where the march came to the house of the Jordanian government Because of the coalition between the former prime minister Abdalrouf Al Rouabdh and the parliament at that time, on the refusal of legal modifications events, Before Al Rouabdh leaves in a secret way his office for the avoidance of the prince confrontation, has met with Rim Al Ibrahim, Which was practices did her informational where spark of the admiration originated between them during informational interview short dangled in him on Bin the propellant feelings on margin [lrym] Al-Ibrahimi, which was report for station from Jordan promises her.
prince ali , to side his military interests and humanitarian, athletic high serve as near him from the Jordanian audiences in form other than beaten, where he heads the Jordanian union for soccer since five years.Prince Ali has Wide popularity in Jordan because of heading his for plenty from beautiful humanitarian which situations mean in deprived and poor and the orphans as his matter Alia who incident of destruction demolished in fan-shaped during tours her the humanity on cities the south in Jordan.

The prince (28 year), complete graduate of Saint [hyrst] the British ownership for studious military, in the same way as his brothers. Disagreement for estrangement his of sister the princess [hyaa] girl of the feelings is comparable with permanent about Jordan, because of the study and associated in the contests international for equestrian and the horses, The prince continued the close feelings from and delivers him the King the departing, before get close more than the current king where adheres him in all his books and his movements,, Just as that he the Jordanian prince calculates for his lack of confrontation for ogre [aalytm] and he in age small very, in far about countries his and captured him and his branches.

In announcing engagement of the Jordanian prince the youth, formation dreams of the hundred girls Jordanian in the connection in him, disappointment sustained in, where PRINCE ALI the feelings the more popularity between the youths in Jordan, Because of his compliance on touching of worries and their aspirations. The experts confirm, that intellectual correspondences [wSfaatyaa] the princes accumulated, who inclination for the absolute simplicity believes in their. The protocolic renunciation about the appearances, where appeared [rym] in normal clothes very during the shots which broadcasts her the official information Jordanian, during her ceremonies of engagement, At the time who desires in him the Jordanian prince on frequentation of restaurants the Jordanian capital in clothes of jean, ,,

Without [Hraasaat] and the common people sits, just as that he the shopping in shackles straightens in the businesses antagonized from.

To complicated [qraan] the prince the feelings that wide popularity between sons wandered him in Jordan, where the Jordanian prince in streets of Jordan moves. Without appearances of protection or your affectation just as that he secret to houses passes poor and needy for presentation the financial aid and the social assistance for them.

Thanks for the pictures, suria. I particularly like the one of her putting on mascara. Why is it women always have their mouth open when they apply it?! Makes me laugh.

Yes. I think that it is right how Rym putting Mascara because I know for sure that she uses her left hand usually. You can also see it on the picture during the signature of her marriage contract with prince Ali.

I find it very romantic the part that says that Prince Ali captured the heart of Rym before and about 2 years.

It's clear that prince Ali loves the simplicity'of his wife.
