Thanks for the photos, I don't suppose anybody has access to a videoclip of Rania speaking in Jeddah? She looked lovely.

I cannot wait for the Brunei trip!

Thanks for posting this Adamari, it is certainly a much more realistic appraisal of the situation regarding the king and queen than what is written in Ahlan or Vogue which is used a PR vehicle. People should remember that the public face is not always the same as the private person.

Thousands of words praising King Abdullah’s directives to clean up a hospital or build housing for the poor, or his attempts to assist beleaguered Palestinian officials, would also run unedited—straight from the palace to the pages of the newspaper…

Sharm El Shaikh, April 28 (Petra)-- His Majesty King Abdullah II and Egyptian President Muhammed Husni Mubarak affirmed the importance of achieving a substantive progress in the peace process leading to practical results on the ground, warning that the slowdown in achieving this goal would increase the complexities of the situation and exacerbate tensions and resentment in the region.

An interview with Colleen McGuire who has participated in the "Follow the Women" cycling tour around the Middle East.

"We also ride with the Queen of Jordan, Queen Rania. I had the privilege to ride next to her and she asked me about life in New York. She is a Palestinian herself and very conscientious of the Palestinian problem of a denial for their statehood. Queen Rania is actually a runner more than a biker. She is supporting us again this FTW '08. "

Here's a link to the 2005 race that she participated in
LINK

AMSTERDAM _ Queen Rania attends conference on Global Reporting Initiative, which will release results of efforts launched by Al Gore two years ago to get corporations to report on their social and environmental impacts. Through May 9.
LINK

Queen Rania wrote a piece for Time about Madeeha Hasan Odhaib, an Iraqi woman who is in this year's "Time 100" list.

"It's not every day that success stories echo out of Iraq into the halls of power, but Madeeha Hasan Odhaib defies the norm. Armed with her sewing machine, unflinching stoicism and determination, Madeeha, 37, is mending the fabric of Iraq."

KOURA DISTRICT - His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday ordered a comprehensive plan for Koura District to address its problems and meet the needs of its 110,000 residents.
The plan entails the allocation of JD4 million to implement several projects in the fields of health, education and services to address the socio-economic challenges the district's inhabitants face and improve their living condition

It looks like the King has shaved off his beard! I think he looked much better with it, hopefully he'll grow it back!

The body of Obeidat was recently exhumed in the East Jerusalem suburb of Anata and was handed over to the Jordan Armed Forces in March. He was buried the following month with full military honours in his native village of Yubla, which His Majesty King Abdullah visited yesterday and called on Obeidat's family.
