MM's English is excellent! She seems so relaxed and comfortable speaking it. It appears to come naturally to her. Thank you for posting these videos. I had never heard her speaking English before.

Has anyone else noticed the change in Rania's accent? It seems more Americanized as she's enunciating her T's less and gliding over her vowels. Everything is consciously less studied, just like her fashion.

She said that a lot of their profs are American so that probably accounts for the lack of accent too.


King Abdullah and Queen Rania's kids also speak English along with Arabic. They have english speaking nannies and go to English schools.
Infact English is almost like a second first-language to the members of the Jordanian royal family which is not surprising since a lot of them have been educated in the UK and US.

wow MM sounds like an American! And she seems like a fun person to be around! I've always thought she would have an accent.

i was always curious about King Juan Carlos and Queen Silvia portuguese. i never found videos of them speaking it. Portuguese is one of the hardest languages around, and i never heard a non-portuguese citizen speak in a perfect portuguese accent, never in my life! portuguese of Portugal, not portuguese in Brazil.

i speak Portuguese, Spanish, English and Japanese. except the Japanese royals, i wonder if another royals speak Japanese. i knew once that Princess Raiyah of Jordan went to study in Japan.
i want to learn Korean too, never heard of an european royal that speaks that language too!

anyone here has some videos of Letizia speaking in English? i heard her English is awful

Can't find any English speaking videos (or really, much video at all of Letizia speaking - mostly musical tributes to the way she looks).

thanks MagMil for the link. Queen Silvia did a great job when speaking portuguese of Brazil, well the accent from Brazil is much easier than the accent of Portugal. even brazilian citizens cant speak with portuguese from Portugal accent. i thought it was hard to believe that Queen Silvia could spoke from Portugal accent, it was actually the accent from Brazil and not Portugal, but her brazil accent is great and she sounded fantastic!

i wish i could hear King JC speak portuguese, im sure its from Portugal accent.

thanks PrincessKaimi for looking for Leti videos. im still curious about her english skills though
