I didn't see the King and Queen on the list of those who will attend William's wedding. I may be wrong but I think this was the final list. Feel free to correct me! Well it must be hard for these two to be spending so much time in Jordan. Let's hope that the whole turmoil in the ME ends soon and Rania can go back to her 3-day shopping trips to Paris and London!! That wardrobe of late has been a disappointment. . .

Thanks King Abdulla II

I know its not the proper place to write this but I think this is the essence of the royal family in Jordan, they never miss the touch with their people,

If you have been following the news, the last 5 months were very tense on the people and the government, his majesty has been listening to the pains and concerns of the Jordanians. HM sacked Rifa3i government when he felt it was not liked by the majority.

Last month we witnessed a fierce campaign against corruption, big names were sent behind bars, investigations are all over the kingdom. Tonight, HM formed a committee to amend the constitution, a controversial demand, but HM KA II kept all doors opened to enhance the political system in Jordan and give a better chance for a strong parliament and an independent Judiciary. Also, HM Kept his promise to Jordan teachers and the government started writing teacher's association law, another long awaiting demand.

To sum up, we bet on our king, and he never let us down, I'm sure that by god's will Jordan will pass the Arabian spring and emerge stronger and wiser, with an enhanced and reformed kingdom that is always in touch with its people.

Gad Save Jordan
Gad Save King Abdualla II


If any one here knows HM personally tell him..Thank you

the King and the Queen were both invited but given the situation in Jordan currently I think it would be incredibly stupid for either one (especially the Queen) to go. Somebody from the JRF should go though to represent Jordan.

It is not the final list- there are 1900 people coming and there weren't that many on the list

King Abdullah and Queen Rania have been members of the Prince of Wales' inner circle for years, their friendship with he and the Duchess of Cornwall is well known.

I think it would be more than a little odd if they were passed over for an invitation.

The Windsor Knot - Who's invited to the royal wedding... and who's not?


I couldn't find my original source so I had to google it. More recent articles will say that they are not attending or weren't invited but earlier sources say that they were invited. So I think it's safe to assume that they were invited but they declined.

If King Abdullah & Queen Rania were invited and planning on not attending (which I would understand but would be a pity) I am pretty sure they would send a representative. SOme royals were not invited, it would make sense if they were among those not invited.

I cant imagine they were not invited given the various very personal relations beween the JRF and the BRF. I could imagine that they declined for obvious reasons, keeping a low profile but they could have send a more low key representative, plenty of options in the JRF. The JRF not attending at all is a very strange thought.

I am puzzled by
Quote:
"Approximately 50 members of the royal family, along with 40 or so members of other royal families were invited, and some of the surprise invitees include King of Jordan, ... [snipped]".
Why would King Abdullah and Queen Rania be considered as surprise invitees? Given the current situation within Jordan, declining an invitation is understandable. King Abdullah is likely to send one of his brothers (e.g., Prince Ali and Princess Rym) to represent the family. I wonder whether Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath have they been invited.
On a different note, other foreign monarchs listed are not known for attending such events in person.

I come across some articles say that the king was not invited in the first place!!!if it's true I think it's quit odd.
anyway let's wait to see if someone will represent JRF at the wedding if no one go it's safe to say they were not invited.

That's highly doubtful shrifia.

The JRF is very close with the British royals so I expect to see several Jordanian royals at the wedding. Queen Rania is close friends with both Charles and Camilla, so is KA. QR even mentioned her impressions of Prince William when she met him years ago.
Let's not forget Princess Badiya who lives in London and has invited Prince Charles to several of her charitable events. We might even see Queen Noor there, certainly members of Prince Hassan's family.

The JRF likes to keep it's engagements private until the very last moment and usually doesn't announce them in advance. We will definitely see some members of the royal family. But if KA and QR don't attend, it will be for other reasons, not because they were not invited - that's simply impossible considering the two families' personal histories and some of the other people on the guest list who are not nearly as close to the BRF and whose attendance has become a source of controversy in the British media.

It's common sense. Some of the articles coming out of British press clearly have no clue.

this why I said is a bit odd they didn't get an invitation,JRF are close to the British Royals I remember seen Rania and the king among those who attend Prince Charles Birthday a few years ago.
anyway tomorrow is the big day I am looking forward to see who will represent JRF.
thanks for the post Humera.

Well the latest list was the list of confirmed guests. And as you'll remember, KA and QR's name did appear on the first guest list which was released a few months ago. But then the unrest in the Middle East happened. I think King Abdullah must have advised his family members to refrain from going to the wedding. And it would make perfect sense under the circumstances. A prudent choice. Although unfortunate because we don't get to see them at the wedding.

For more discussion on the guest list, see this thread: Official Guest List for the Wedding of Prince William & Catherine Middleton

This list is of guests who confirmed their attendance. Many people from the earlier list (like the King of Bahrain) who do not appear in this one obviously decided not to attend.
