Thumbs up

It's the first thing I've heard about Jordan before I got intersted in the royal family, they have really outstanding millitary capacity, modern vehicles and weapons, and US is the top county that supports it financially.

Most of the oriental dresses share many similarities either in design or colors

The design of HM thoub" dress" is pure Palestinian and northern Jordanian …The collar is similar to Irbed Thoub " called shersh" and the two lines similar to the ones used in most Palestinian thoubs …

As for the embroidery ..yes it quite different from what we use in Jordan and Palestine but nevertheless very beautiful especially with these colors ..

The queen could have dressed as a military:p ..i guess I've read somewhere that she has a a rank in the Arab Army…

Queen Rania's robe's emboridery reminds me of a style that was quite fashionable in Pakistan a few years ago.

Thanks for the details, I really do like the variations in style and emboridery that you often see in traditional Jordanian clothes.

The Queen has a military rank of colonel, but I've noticed that she doesn't seem to wear her military uniform at events like these.

LOL Salwa it's called here in Irbed, shoresh, not shersh (shersh means "root" in irbid)
I dun see that it is similar to our thoubs though...it is the modern type or style of the thoub, which I really really like...the dresses she wears are very nice, apart from where the style is originated from....
I'll ask about the collar though, it looks "Horani" (this is what the nothern style is called)
The thoub that I usually wear is Nabulsi, like the one Haya wore a few times (black and red), so I guess the thoubs and shroush aren't worn these days based on where u are from or where u live...no?

I typed this way but I spill it the way you say it :p..i finished my B.A in Irbed you know ..

Horan " shool 7ouran"used to include Irbed..

If you see the Jerusalem thoubs " qada2 el quds- the region am from originally" you can see what am talking about ….The Banayeq" the two rows under the collar " are pure palestenian …each stiche convey a certain meaning …some thoubs stiches showed if a lady is married or still single ..the amount of it conveyed the wealth or the social status …..

Nabulsi " I think you mena qada Nablus" is much more simple and not black & Red as in Jerusalem , P.Haya wears the Beit Dajan & Ramallah types …off-white and Red ..sometime you can find several uncommon colors "..

As for Thoub or Shoresh ..Jordanian of Palestinian origin stick to the ones according to the origin in Palestine , pure east Jordanian ..according to the area too …but in recent years Palestinian ones has been passed as Jordanian …

If you look at Ma'an , Kerak and Salt ..you can see a noticeable difference in material …but in Palestine …the difference is in color of the thoub and embroidery colors and head wear ….

thank you girls for the info. on the various styles of thobes.
btw...I am quite sure that the dress Queen Rania wore yesterday has been worn before...I believe around 4 or 5 years ago. I will see if I can find a picture and post it in the recycling thread.

Two more pictures from yesterday:

King Abdullah II of Jordan and his wife Queen Rania, flanked by officials and members of the Royal family, attend a military parade, the first since King Abdullah II ascended the throne seven years ago, during celebrations to mark the 85th anniversary of Jordan's armed forces, 10 June 2006 in Amman. The Jordanian army has grown from 750 men in 1923 to a combined force of more than 100,000 troops ever since conscription was suspended in 1999, in the aftermath of the 1994 peace treaty with Israel.

U took ur B.A from Irbid? I did too...where from?
Yea I think Ur right, I duno much about the details of thoubs, but I can tell if it's horani (the black with blue and white embroidery I.e in al-Ramtha), and the Ma'any,Aqabawi (from Aqaba), I of course can tell the one from Ramallah too, as my mum had one,ummm, So I guess my thoub isn't Nabulsi after all huh ...I'll ask , or maybe look for a pic here and post one similar to it....

Thanks again Salwa :)

Thanks salwa and lil_monkey for the explanations. I've always known that there are different styles depending on geographic area but it's interesting to read about them in greater detail.

Thanks for the pictures, Humera.

Any idea when the King and Queen are flying out to Thailand? I've read thy're attending the Thai King's celebrations, but they're both incredibly busy at the moment it seems hard to imagine they'll actually fit the time in!

King Abdullah will fly out tomorrow. I read in the Diamond Jubilee thread that Queen Rania will accompany him though Im not so sure anymore. This conference on maternal and child mortality is obviously very important and will last for 3 days. Maybe the Queen will leave with her husband tomorrow and return for the closing of the conference on the 13th? I dont see how she'll manage that without being utterly exhausted. I'd like to see her at the festivities in Thailand though.

The following link has a detailed schedule on the first day of the conference.
http://releases.usnewswire.com/GetRelease.asp?id=67304

Queen Rania will be hosting a dinner tonight as well.

I'd heard they were both going too, although I can't really see her leaving when such an important conference is taking place. Having said that though most of the more recent news reports have just mentioned King Abdullah attending, so maybe she's had to drop out?
If she does go she'll definitely need a break when she returns.
