Although we dont exactly know how much Rania gets, all Queen consorts, and Crown Princesses get a certain sum of money, depending on the country, for personal expenses, or get a certain percentage of their husband's allowance.
The wife of a reigning monarch is not the same as the wife of an elected president. So I agree, we should stop comparing apples to oranges before the discussion gets way off-topic.

This seems to be a rather low-key event. Even Petra had just one picture of Rania at the University of Oxford.

The Skoll Foundation website has a video of the entire opening session from yesterday: (speakers included Queen Rania, Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus and Salman Ahmed of the Pakistani band Junoon)

It sounds like an interesting event so I'm surprised there's so little coverage. However I did find a few news stories about the event.

Thanks for the video link.

That's cute!
I can just picture King Abdullah watching endless re-runs of the various Star Trek shows. Actually I bet he has all of them on DVD (most trekkies who can afford to do so would)

Queen Rania Rehabilitation Center inaugurated in Cologne

Cologne, Apr. 2 (Petra) Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah inaugurated the new Queen Rania Rehabilitation Center at the University of Cologne in Germany, Monday, where a memorandum of understanding was signed between the university and the Royal Medical Services (RMS) in Jordan.
According to the agreement, the center will offer training programs for Jordanian physiotherapists and physicians. This will include both short-term and long-term practical training at the rehabilitation center.

Physiotherapists and physicians from the rehabilitation center will also be making visits to Jordan to provide on-the-job training to their Jordanian counterparts at the Pediatric Rehabilitation Medical Clinic, part of the Queen Rania Children's Hospital. The Queen Rania Children's Hospital is expected to open in Jordan in 2008. Petra
