This is interesting. Was the reason the women did not have to be covered because they were inside the Jordanian embassy, or just because they were not on the street? And do women normally speak in SA in front of groups of men as Q Rania did?

Inside the embassy. Perhaps. Same reasoning behind why Victoria was covered. Swedish Embassy. Also as a foreign, non-Muslim woman she's not expected per se. Just be mindful. Don't go overboard as it were. Not only did Rania spoke but others did as well. I think it would depend on the men and the situation. I mean I don't know if women would be allowed to speak at a conference for imans. Probably not.

It's because they were inside that they didn't have to be covered, it's only in public places taht you have to be covered and if you are foreign it doesn't really apply, you just have to wear modest clothing. Though of course if you are a visiting royal then it is gracious to do as they do, but why inside the embassy when its jordanian territory? And all the other women aren't (ecept the one who really is, i mean she wears it all the time) so it is a bit odd. Plus its a funny looking hijab, it seems to have a button to hold it together, hy doesn't she just drape it or use pins like evryone else at least that way it would cover her neck aswell (like hijabs are meant to)!!

it is an odd-looking hijab...reminds me of one of the characters in lord of the rings...one of elves... :P

i think she looked better with a regular hijab or at least a scarf like the one she wore to iran

I think it is a long rectangular scarf that she has pinned under her chin and the ends are then flowing back over her shoulders........possibly.
In the last 2 pictures the scarf is arranged at her neck differently.

I don't understand why she just doesn't wear it as other women also Alia.

Yeah, I thought it was neat the way it was near the neck. I hadn't noticed one like that before.

This was in a caption about Crown Princess Victoria:

Despite the leading role granted to women at the forum, they were segregated from men in the conference hall behind dividing screens according to the traditions of the Saudi kingdom, and the women participating in the gathering attended their own gala dinner separate from the men.

well, this is Umrah you know so i don't think that she should be focused on make-up...i like the fact that she put her focus on what's at hand and not on her image.

well umrah is basically like hajj - the holy pilgramage to Mecca in saudi arabia. the difference between umrah and hajj is that umrah can be performed at anytime during the year while hajj is performed at a specific time (i think it will be performed around the end of january this year)...

i don't know a good website but this one's okay...you can find some links on hajj

http://www.musalman.com/hajj/

but basically, you have to do several rituals like circle the Ka'aba, run between Safwa and Marwa, drink Zam Zam water, etc.

it's really nice to do it - for muslims anyway - and it has great spirital merit in Islam. so it's nice that rania upheld that and focused on what was on hand rather than her image.
