9 OCTOBER 2003
King Abdullah and Queen Rania of Jordan of Jordan received a warm welcome during their three-day visit to Sweden. Met at the airport by Prince Carl Philip and Crown Princess Victoria, they were then whisked off to the Royal Palace in Stockholm, where King Carl Gustaf and Queen Sylvia had laid on a lavish reception.

The following day Rania, accompanied by the Swedish queen, paid a visit to the Swedish Crisis Centre for Women. The facility provides refuge and assistance to women and children who are victims of domestic violence.

Rania, who is an active campaigner for children's rights, established a similar resource for disadvantaged youngsters in Amman in August 2000.

During their stay King Abdullah addressed the Swedish Institute of International Affairs. Reaffirming his country's commitment to the path of development and peace, the monarch called on all countries to act with humanity.

"We have spoken out boldly in the name of tolerance and justice," he told an audience of 200 politicians and journalists. "We have taken risks for peace in our region and around the world. And we have embarked on an extensive programme of economic, political and social reform."

The trip was not entirely taken up with affairs of state, however. Before departing Sweden the couple's young daughter Princess Salma got to make a new friend when she and her mum visited a herd of reindeer in Jukkasjaervi, a village 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle.

Despite meeting a beast never encountered in her Jordanian homeland, the young princess seemed more fascinated by the helicopter circling overhead than the Sami reindeer

I agree its sweet that they take Salma with them, but what about the other two?
And about Victorias dress: I think it could have been a nice dress if had been a little bit different and if it had been a different person. It just didnt suit Victoria...

Ah...how many dinners were there? Madeleine attended one, I think...and the other one?

I think the reason why prince Hussein and princess Iman wasnt with their parents in Sweden is that they are older and dont "need" their parents as much as Salma does

btw, you cant direct link pictures from IBL. You must attach them

Hussein is nine and Iman seven, so they probably went to school.

Salma is so cute! Why didn't they take Iman or Hussein with them? Hmm...why is she blonde? Her parents aren't blonde...very odd for a Jordanian, isn't it? Then again, her father has blue eyes...very odd. She'll be as pretty as her mom. :flower:

You can really see how thin Rania is in the reindeer photo.

There may be a reason for Victoria's gown being very covered up. Queen Silvia was very covered up as was Pss Lilian. Perhaps, because their guests are Muslim they thought it more appropriate and respectful. Just a thought.

"Salma is so cute! Why didn't they take Iman or Hussein with them? Hmm...why is she blonde?"

Iman and Hussein were in school. They accompany their parents on trips when their school schedules allow. Both Abdullah and Rania are very hands on parents and do not like being apart from their children. As for being blonde...Iman is much more blonde than Salma is. Blonde is a very normal color for children. Their hair tends to darken as they get older. I went from dark black to white blonde to dishwater blonde to brown. Neither of my parents nor anyone in my family have blonde hair. Plus the blonde gene is recessive. If both parents had the gene and passed it on to the child, the child will have blonde hair (of some shade). Muna, Abdullah's mother, has blonde hair.

Blonde isn't that normal of a colour for Asian children- exception Russia, Uzbekhistan, etc. I'm surprised that Jordanian children have blonde hair. It's a big contrast from their darker skin and dark eyes.

"Blonde isn't that normal of a colour for Asian children"

Jordan isn't an Asian country. It is in a region called the Near East but is in no way an Asian country. I know that most people talk about its Oriental heritage but that is not the same oriental definition that is used to refer to Asia. Jordan is an Arab country.

Pegassuss is right. Jordan is very different than "Asian" countries. I was surprised when I was in the Middle East and saw a lot of blond people that looked European to me. A lot of Arabs have fair skin and light hair and eyes, but the stereotype is the dark hair...eyes...so don't always beleive the stereotype.

Kurds have a blonde streak, and they aren't just in Turkey and Iraq, they are simply more populous there. Also the Circasians are from the caspian region, and they have a strong presence in Jordan.

You also have to realize that the Levant was been the center of Mediterrainian culture for all but the last 200 of the past 3000 years. I'm sure a few Roman garrisons in Jerusalem might have sowed a few wild oats. :)
