Lords, I totally agree, she's always been beautiful, she's just tweaked her image, which lets face it as Queen was always going to happen.

Rania's been at three events already this year which have involved her having to pay condolensces for the dead. So sad.

Humera, do you know if they are paying their respects to the families of those affected by the recent attacks in Aqaba?

That's so sad. It's when you say photos like these it reminds you that being a King or Queen isn't all about glamour and gala dinners. I've seen a similar picture of Felipe and Letizia on another thread at a funeral for Spanish soldiers who recently died and they look just as emotionally drained as Rania and Abdullah do in these pictures.

yes unfortunately the Spanish royals have been involved in quite a few sad events, funerals, memorials, this year too.
Here's an article from Jordan Times about the King and Queen's visit last night:

Rania and Abdullah haven't been on a state visit for quite a while. They haven't received any foreign royals on state visits to Jordan either.
One explanation might be the tense situation in the ME but then the region is always tense. As I recall Queen Noor and King Hussein received many foreign royals on state visits to Jordan.
I hope we see such visits in the future.

I think it's because so many royals are on summer holiday. They were too.

well i wasnt just referring to this summer.
Their last major state visit was to Sweden in October 2003.
And they haven't received any royals on official visits to Jordan since becoming King and Queen in 1999.
I suppose that will change with time.

I've seen Rania on TV many times. And she looks just as good as she does in the pictures.
However you seem not to like her at all so I doubt you'll feel the same way.

Did you see the programm that I'm talking about?

I don't like many of behavior of rania,but I don't think that my opinion about her influences my eyes ,I said that I foud her good in pictures but not on TV!!


Other way,there are many people which I like a lot,but which I don't find particulary beautifull like princess lalla salma or princess victoria

I have noticed that KA whenever goes on vacation never was accompanied with Prince Faisal, that's weird because I thought they were close. He was accompanied with Prince Talal once, Hamzah and Hashim too and he always spends the holiday with his sister Aisha. In all the photos you can see Aisha or one of her children or her husband Zeid (or is it Juma'a). There's a photo of QR shopping and Zeid appears slightly in the picture. I guess this assures what I read in Arab Times, regarding how QR met KA, the article said that QR was a friend of Aisha and through her she met Abdullah, not in a bank or exhibition as I always read. There's not much age difference between them, is it? I mean Aisha and QR.

The sad part is that why he never was with Faisal on a vacation, I have assumed that maybe PF doesn't like for his wife or daughter to show "much skin", their wardrobe is entirely different from QR or Aisha.

I was wondering why Prince Hussein doesn't look like his age. He is 11 but he looks far much younger while Omar (Feisal's kid) looks exactly like a 12-year-old boy, though there's a year difference between them, it wouldn't affect the fact that Omar look now older and more mature. When they were around 7 and 8, they look like the same age. Now it's like Hussein stopped growing while Omar had gained a lot of weight and looks more mature.

have there been any official state visits to jordan during King Abdullah's reign? I can't think of any - just informal visits such as from Blair, etc.

I have the same feeling.. ka and wife are the ones going to other countries be it for state visits, shopping, vacation, etc..In fact, the ka is known to spend more time abroad than in jordan...
