Got to watch the press conference with the King and Harper. It was interesting to listen to them both and glad to know Canada will be getting involved with important projects and taking more of a leap with the middle east. Didn't get to hear the press asking more questioned, but the verdict on Conrad Black cut the press conference . I guess it was more important than what the King had to say????? I guess I am just tried of the whole Black Trial. JUst happy to know the KIng was in Canada.

I agree, she does a little, but it could be a number of things, maybe a little extra weight gained to the stomach, or the shirt is clinging to her oddly. So unless there is an announcement, then we can assume she is not.

She's not pregnant.. I think after the birth of Prince Hashem, King Abdullah & Queen Rania 'sort of' made an annoucement proclaiming Prince Hashem will be their last child.. But I hope she delivers another princess.. That'd be nice..

What's up with all the Fall jackets in the middle of a Jordan summer Rania?? Interesting choices!

Check out with the king is up to hehehe--thanks LeoMama for the heads up!
It looks like he's on an all boys holiday. I wonder what Rania's doing why her man goes out to play in California? Maybe she'll meet up with him there later or maybe in Southern Cali.
