When the royal family 'play' to the West it is because there is an agenda not always because what they are saying is true. They have to try to look good, same as others.
I'm from Jordan and what we see in the media its not always the truth

i think that QRania is great queen/first lady for Jordan,good image for her country,however i join some views here that she should focus more on her work at home,i think you have to convince you're ppl first,sometimes she seems to be more interested on what west think of her than her own ppl.

I find it amusing when people wax lyrical about Queen Noor as queen as though she were the ideal.Did Noor help eliminate honour killings? Did she reduce poverty in any major shape or form? Did she improve education in any major shape or form? The answer is no every time.

The problems Jordan has today did not appear the moment Rania became queen, they existed long before she became queen and I find it ridiculous that somebody who has been queen for 9 years is supposed to have addressed all these issues completely. Especially when Noor who was queen for 20 years did not "solve" these problems.

Moreover I find people's shortsightedness strange as well, Noor was often criticised for the things Rania is today, her wardrobe, her lifestyle, the amount of time she spent in the West etc.

Whether some people like to admit it or not, if Queen Noor and Queen Rania pursued agendas in the West they did/do so with the blessings of their husbands. Jordan has always chosen to court Western nations, particularly the USA and the UK; Jordanian queens are not going to do any different.

For 23 years, The Economist has issued bold predictions for the coming year in its thick December special issue. Last year, its crystal ball, in the issue called “The World in 2008,” was a little foggy..............

Mr. Franklin drafted writers including Yulia Tymoshenko, Paul G. Allen, Henry A. Kissinger and Queen Rania of Jordan to weigh in on what issues matter to them.

Queen Rania has pressed for new laws to allow women to pass on their nationality, but lawmakers have resisted, fearing the move could open the way for Palestinian refugees to gain citizenship.

The STARS Foundation, a London-based charitable foundation which works to improve the lives of disadvantaged children around the world, is pleased to announce the three recipients of the 2008 STARS Impact Awards...........

The prestigious awards, of which Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan is Patron, recognise one recipient in each category of health, education and protection. The recipients are selected against a range of criteria which reflect the hallmarks of effective practice and demonstrate a positive impact on the lives of the children supported.

To be fair Rania hasn't done anything of importance or effectivemness to reduce honour killings or poverty either and a lick of paint in a few schools doesn't solve problems either.

This is the official photographer for the Lebanese government. Click on "Presidential Palace" to get current photos. Click on "Archive" to get previous days' photos. They have several photos of the president's visit to Jordan that Petra does not (and of much better quality, too).
