On the oficial website of the Royal Family of Spain (http://www.casareal.es/esp/cronicas/Acto.jsp?acto=3214) I found some information about the visit to Saudi Arabia, but I didn't see anything in regard to the visit to Jordan...

The dates for the Spanish state visit to Jordan haven't been announced yet.
But the trip itself was announced several weeks ago.

Astroc Foundation Director Benjamin Atienza Gimenez (R) and the Founder of the Self Employed Women's Association Ela Bhatt (R) announce the winners of the Spanish Non-Governmental Organization 'Women together's annual awards during a press conference Monday, 03 April 2006, at the United Nations headquarters in New York, USA. Some of this year's recepients are Queen Rania of Jordan, Senator Hillary Clinton and Colombian singer Shakira. The awards ceremony will take place tonight at the UN. EPA/Miguel Rajmil/ANP



Shakira, Karolina Win Humanitarian Awards
UNITED NATIONS -- Latin pop star Shakira and Czech supermodel Karolina Kurkova received awards Monday for their humanitarian work and then watched a fashion show featuring clothes partly made by women trying to escape poverty in developing countries.

More than 400 fans and fashionistas joined VIP guests for the two events and a panel on Poverty, Women and Human Rights. It focused on the success of microcredit loans, which hundreds of millions of women have used to start businesses, and the need to help the 1 billion people who still live on $1 a day or less.

...........There was disappointment in the crowd that several famous winners sent representatives to collect their awards -- including actress Angelina Jolie, Queen Rania of Jordan, Sen. Hillary Clinton, and Kerry Kennedy, who founded a human rights center named after her late father, Robert F. Kennedy.

It's a shame Rania wasn't there, but then I suppose she did have her prior engagement in South Africa.

The KA brough Prince Hussein with him to some official visit. I think KA want his son to familiar with the task the king need to do. And also train him to become a crown prince. :)

Correct me if I am wrong? Does anyone think it's kind of young to get an eleven year old child ready to be a crown prince. He is only eleven. I know he might be a crown prince one day or even a King. Allot to put on a young child. I even read once that the Queen said something about it being like child abuse to let her son know that he could be King one day. I know other royals do these sort of things with their children and I know they have to get uses to it. I just think that kids today have enough pressure as it is.... why add more......

Well i think if KA is thinking of praparing his Son to be the future King hes not going to train him when hes older is he?! Is better to prapare him now for his future role and i dont think theyre doing anything wrong with him, they are not excatly kill him with duties. Plus i know hes a kid but hes got a title of a Prince, not many kids have that im afraid:)

Whilst it is hard to introduce a child to such an enormous amount of pressure in many ways Hussein is lucky because if he is officially named Crown Prince he has the advantage over others.

He's been given the chance to grow up with as "normal" a life as possible. Individuals like Haakon, Willem-Alexander and Charles have known since they were children that they were future kings. They've had the pressure since Day 1.

Jordan to host Iraqi Islamic reconciliation summit</STRONG>

Jordan to host Iraqi Islamic reconciliation summit
Amman, April 5 (Petra) -- Under the patronage of His Majesty King Abdullah II, a large number of senior Iraqi religious and tribal leaders- both Sunnis and Shi'is, Arab and Kurds- will gather in Amman on April 22,2006 from the Iraqi Islamic Reconciliation Summit. The meeting, organized in cooperation between Aal al- Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought and the Arab League, will provide a form for Iraqi leaders to take a crucial step towards stemming the violence in Iraq.
During the summit, King Abdullah will join the delegates in a call for an end to bloodshed and religious tension in Iraq. The summit is expected to culminate in a signed declaration stating that fighting between Shi'is and Sunnis has no legitimate religious basis.

The Iraqi Islamic Reconciliation Summit is necessary to help bring the violence in Iraq to an end, establish a stable and fully representative Iraqi government and permit a peaceful and orderly withdrawal of coalition troops. Peace in Iraq cannot be achieved without a political solution, and a political solution cannot, in return, be achieved without a religious solution because fighting in Iraq has generally occurred along religious sectarian lines, especially among Iraq's Arab Muslim communities.
The Iraqi Reconciliation Summit thus seeks to alleviate religious tensions by asserting fundamental principles that are shared by all Muslims. As such, it could constitute a critical step in defusing civil tension and helping to clear the way for a final and permanent political solution in Iraq.

In the pictures from the London Business College course it looks as though Rania has had her hair cut.
