The long sleeve/short sleeve thing is still around on the catwalks, I remember seeing it at 2006 Autumn/Winter shows. Cannot recall the designer though.

I don't understand what you mean? This is an official occasion, it's one of her offiical events, so if she has a stylist (I'm not sure if she does anymore) then she would have helped with this outfit.

By official occasion I mean official trips abroad, official visits from people abroad, gala evenings and dinners, etc. Of course, almost everything she does is official in some way or another but I don't think that if she still has a stylist, she would consult her stylist on a daily basis as to what to wear to every single thing she attends. I would assume if she is going on say a state visit, she will discuss with an expert how to put together her outfits, what to wear and when and with what.

Queen visits model community development project

WADI RUM/DISSEH (Petra) — Her Majesty Queen Rania visited a development project in the southern area of Disseh on Saturday where residents, in cooperation with civil society organisations, have established a modern olive presser.
In a meeting between the Queen and community leaders, President of the Social Development Centres Society Seri Nasser said the two-year-old project was the outcome of “an effective partnership among the residents of the Qweira District, about 300km south of Amman.”
Nasser noted that residents of Tweissa, Ghal and Mneisheer villages, represented in the Al Hussein Cooperative Society, are now running the presser, which has saved local farmers JD70,000 a year as they no longer have to travel to pressers in Maan and other regional towns.
. . . Queen Rania also visited the girls’ school in Wadi Rum village and the Barada Ladies Society, where 67 women make rugs, embroidery and olive oil soap. Jordan Times
