She is called al saleh b'coz of her husband,it's his surname.She is a nice lady,blue eyed,looks alot like her mom.I've seen an interview with Queen Dina,days after the late king died on ART channel,Alia shares same face features with her but she has a Jordanian accent while her mom has Egyptian accent.She's so humble,I've seen interviews with Alia,she'd answer to the calls in a very humble,down to earth way.She considers Prince Hassan and Princess Basma "friends" more than an uncle and an aunt because there's not much age difference between them.
Her son,Prince Hussein is a charming young man,got his title though he shouldn't coz he was KH's firt grandchild and named after him.He's fair and blonde,a bit like Prince Hashim.There's an onld thread where his nany talks about him,search for it and read it,useful info there.The two sons where named after her grandfathers,late King Talal and the late Sharif Abdul Hamid.
I posted 2 pics I found in a quick search but you'll find ones in the agencies,here in this thread there are photos of her when she was a child with here mom.
