Queen Rania at the launch of the national information system for family affairs
http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f3...News-18098.jpg

AMMAN - Her Majesty Queen Rania, president of the National Council for Family Affairs (NCFA), on Monday took part in the launch of the national information system for family affairs and two guidebooks on local family-related regulations and research.
The NCFA, in cooperation with several government agencies and civil society institutions concerned with family issues, prepared the national information system for family affairs, a guidebook on family regulations and another on family studies and research.
The three projects seek to provide lawmakers, sociologists and researchers in the field of family-related issues with a solid and accurate background on the situation of families in the Kingdom.

Yesterday I was watching the game show Jeopardy and Rania read the statements in a category about UNICEF. They even showed video of a trip to Morocco and I spotted Lalla Salma (even though she wasn't mentioned in the clue). I wonder how many other queens have participated in game shows.

Yes, finally a fresh color. Queen Rania is a very stylish woman but her recent colours brown, black, grey, beige, navy blue started to become very boring. She should wear more colours.

Thanks for all the photos!

I'm glad to see the children being encouraged to get involved with charity work at a young age!

Love the dark rust coloured jacket

(MENAFN - Jordan Times) The Spanish government extended on Tuesday soft loans totalling nine million euros to support Jordan's microfinance sector which generates up to 20 per cent of the Kingdom's gross domestic product (GDP)...........

"The ministry is keen on channelling financial support to the microfinance sector, which is backed by Her Majesty Queen Rania due to its role in enhancing socio-economic living standards of people, especially women," Al-Ali said."

An article about the film, "Captain Abu Raed".

"Not only is "Captain Abu Raed" the first professional feature film to come out of Matalqa's native Jordan, it is already winning awards. Just days after The Lantern sat down with him, Matalqa's film walked away from Sundance with the World Cinema Audience Award.........

Matalqa said the film was funded by private investors in Jordan, but it also had the backing of the government and the media. The first people mentioned in the special thanks are King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan."

the royal family of Jordan is enjoying while the rest of the Jordanian people are str

It just happened that last week I was surfing the Internet for airlines news and found some interesting pictures that show the level of spending that the royal family of Jordan is enjoying while the rest of the Jordanian people are struggling on a daily basis to provide the basic needs for their families.
Please note that the comments on all of the pictures I'm going to post were provided by the photographers who took these images and it just happened that non of these photographers is of Arabic origin.
In this picture, a prince of the royal family flew to Berlin for a "private dinner" which looks like a date to me.
http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=1277962&size=L&width=1280&height=869&sok=&photo_nr=2
Next, the royal family flew two airplanes to attend a birthday party of the Swedish king in Stockholm, Sweden. "Public Relations" I guess
http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=1045557&photo_nr=26&prev_id=1049781&next_id=1011588&size=L
As for the king himself, that's a totally different story. He acquired his latest private jet in 2002 which is an Airbus A340-200, an ex-Lufthansa aircraft, that was converted into a private jet by Lufthansa Technik and was equipped with an anti-missile/ air-defense system shown in this picture:
http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=0723192&photo_nr=44&prev_id=0723220&next_id=0721547&size=L
This Aircraft will be replaced by a BRAND NEW aircraft that has been ordered by the King from Airbus in 2007. The new airliner, A340-600 at 75.3m is the longest aircraft ever made up to date and costs $218 million in 2006 dollars for a passenger model, which means that a privately configured jet will surpass that number by far more. This aircraft has been for long the flagship of Airbus Business Jets until recently with the introduction of the A380 Business Jet.
Looks like the king/ Queen are everywhere, and for the time and money they spend on traveling and "Public Relations", Jordan should be the richest country in the Middle East".
Seen here leaving Tokyo on his way to Singapore:

A quick visit to San Francisco, that I don't understand why!!:
http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=0732693&photo_nr=39&prev_id=0746367&next_id=0726348&size=L
Hong Kong:
http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=0671151&size=L&width=1200&height=812&sok=&photo_nr=52

and many other places that you can find at this link:
http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.search?&airlinesearch=The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan&nr_of_rows=126&first_this_page=0&page_limit=15&sort_order=photo_id+DESC&nr_pages=9
A full tank of A340-200 takes about 41,000 US gallons, and 52,000-53,000 US gallons for the newly ordered A340-600. This should be enough to do simple math based on around $4.00/US gallon of jet fuel.
The Royal Family owns the following fleet of Aircrafts (that's what I know of):
Two Canadaie CL-600-2B16 Challenger 604 business jet.
One Boeing 737-700 BBJ
One Airbus A340-200 business jet
One AِirBus A340-600 business jet ( on order).
