Their absence is completely understandable considering the current circumstances in the region.

I agree for me it would be abnormal if anyone from them attended , the region is boiling ..

I didn't expect to see Rania or the king in the wedding because of circumstances in Jordan and ME however I think one from JRF should attended given "the how" good the relation between the two families..

I expected to see at least a representative but obviously King Abdullah decided against it. One might say he was being overly cautious but when you think about it, its better to be safe than risk more criticism.
Queen Rania watched the wedding on tv with her kids.

It would be safe to assume that the formal invitation was extended for the reigning couple to attend the wedding. Given the volatile situation in the region, it was expedient for them to stay at home.

Me too but i think it`s a good decision .. their participation may lead to the failure of HM`s efforts to solve the problem of political reform in Jordan IMO.

Smart move by the JRF not to be represented at the wedding today. I think had they attended it would have made an already bad situation worse (although I did miss seeing Rania among all the other royal ladies!)

Jordan has actually been mentioned as one of the places where the newlyweds might honeymoon. Catherine spent a couple of years in Amman when she was a toddler and a British commentator on the CBC mentioned that she's keen to go back for a visit.
Who knows, we might see them with the Jordanian royals soon.

i actually don't think things is that bad in Jordan it's not a Syria,Yemen or Libya ...the royal family still popular and well respect by the majority of jordanian unrest and protests didn't reach the king maybe QRania a little but the rest of the family are safe from criticism...i didn't expect to see QRania maybe she needed to stay home,attending sush event could harm her image home more while the king is so involved in the recent reforms announced i don't think he have time however JRF should be represnted in that wedding a senior member could easily do the job Imo.

I agree KA could've sent someone else, perhaps Queen Noor?
I think this is just a case of the king being more cautious than usual. Who knows what the western media might have said if any member of the royal family had attended, there might have been allusions to the events of the past couple of months. I guess they simply didn't want to stir the pot once again.
Although I have to admit that since the foreign royals at this wedding have been so low profile, I don't find the Jordanian royals' absence that noticeable. But Rania and Noor are fairly well known in London so perhaps they would've been the exception.

I agree with you that the JRF are better than other royals in the Middle East & they should be represented, but I think KA can not expose the family to criticism because of this participation especially now after his success in providing an acceptable solution for his country`s problems. Queen Noor i dont think her relationship with the king is good to represent him or the royal family , even (Petra) the official news agency did not cover her activities during her visit to Jordan last week

King Abdullah says in his book very frankly that the relationship went "cold" when he decided to remove the Crown Prince title from her son. It doesnt sound like they even speak.

I think its an interesting theory to say that in case there is a honeymoon, Wills & Kate might spend it in Jordan where they wont be bothered with paparazzi, catch up with the JRF and Wills is being shown the places where his wife grew up.

Saudi Arabia would be represented by the ambassador of Saudi Arabia in Britain prince Mhammad bin Nawwaf and Morroco to be represented by the king's wife princess lalla Salma

Thanks for confirming that Rossina and zeinaaaaa. It is as I suspected and explains why KA and QR's name appeared on the official list of invited guests but not on the official list of guests who had confirmed their attendance.
