I think they value the backgrounds of their family....and QR has family to raise; KA has lots of responsibilities. I think they will incorporate them into various activities and causes. After all, so much more can be accomplished that way, right? I do agree with streamlining idea....the British royals model of assigning various causes to members of family is a good one as it demonstrates royal concern while allowing principle rulers to focus on truly pressing and important issues.

Finally figured out where P. Noor attended college. She attended Emerson College in Boston. Both her older sisters went there, and Q. Noor has enjoyed a longstanding affiliation with the college. This is probably the only college in the area that offers a Bachelor degree in Political Communication. She matriculated under the name "Noor Asem". Check out these links, you'll have to do a bit of reading:

Dancing for dollars

The oft-maligned big-spending Euro crowd that populates Club Nicole on Thursday nights will get to show another side when the club hosts a fundraiser tonight (April 22) for UNICEF. Co-chaired by Emerson College student Sarah Asem (a niece of Jordan's Queen Noor), the event will cost $20 per person, half of which will be donated to increase awareness of the land-mine crisis in Mozambique. UNICEF will also hold a $2500-per-plate dinner at the Ritz June 3 honoring the queen, the former Lisa Halaby of Princeton.

More Emerson stuff, this time as Noor Hamzah. P. Noor is an exceptional student:

Emerson Students and Alumni Visit Saudi Arabia



Students, alums travel to Saudi Arabia for cultural exchange and novel experiences

A group of 19 students and alumni traveled around the globe to participate in a Saudi-American exchange, led by Associate Professor J. Gregory Payne. The 10-day trip was sponsored by Prince Faisal al Saud, an Emerson alumnus, and was held to promote understanding between Saudi Arabia and the United States.

“We arrived in Riyadh airport and were greeted by Prince Faisal al Saud,” reports sophomore Maita Soukup, who is studying political communication and journalism. “We visited carpet and antique markets, historical sites, swam in the Red Sea, met the editors of two newspapers and more.” The Emerson women were required to wear full-length abayas throughout their visit (see accompanying essay).

“The trip was a wonderful experience,” says Teresa Gallo, a master’s student from Spain who is studying political communication. “Everyone was open to us, talked to us. Sometimes women would approach us and ask us where we were from.” Gallo added that “we always think of the differences between Western and Eastern cultures. But there are many things we have in common. The media could be focusing on our similarities rather than our differences.”

One of the primary organizers of the trip, Alexandra Gross, who holds a 2001 master’s degree in political communication from Emerson, has traveled extensively, but was still moved by the discoveries she made about Saudi culture. “I was surprised at how Americanized the country was – the cars, the restaurants, English is spoken widely.” Gross was enthusiastic about organizing the exchange because she felt it was important to provide a chance for Emerson undergraduates to travel abroad and “see a new culture.”

Upon their return, the trip participants held a public discussion on campus.

Those who went on the trip were: Noor Asem, Tim Barney, Vanessa Becks, Allyson Burley, Robert Childs, Easton Craft, Owen Eagan, Michael Garrity, Joern Gutowski, Daniel Hetzel, Benjamin Hintze, Samantha Lussier, Martin Matishak, Matthew Matsaganis and John Silk.

Faculty and Students Participate in NCA Convention

by James O'Brien
10 Emerson faculty members, nine graduate students and two undergraduate students from the Organizational & Political Comm. and Marketing Comm. Departments attended the National Communication Association's (NCA's) annual convention Nov. 21-24 in New Orleans.


Faculty members Ina R. Ames, John D. Anderson, Tom Cooper, Phillip J. Glenn (OPC Dept. Chair), Kenneth J. Levine, Rob MacDougall, Monique Myers, J. Gregory Payne, David Redmon and Sharon Weidner chaired discussions and presented various papers, ranging on topics from "Ethics in Action in the Classroom" to "U.S.-Saudi Relations Post 9/11."

Meanwhile, graduate students Chad O'Connor, John Mansella, Natalie Blais, Samantha Lussier, Vanessa Becks, Craig Weingarten, Isavara Sakunwadhna, Teresa Gallo and Alexandra L. Gross presented papers in numerous discussions, along with undergraduate students Noor Asem and Maita Soukup. "NCA is the nation's premiere organization for professionals engaging in teaching and scholarship about communication," said Phillip Glenn, Organizational & Political Communication department chair. "Emerson was well represented by faculty and students presenting original research, chairing and responding on panels, and attending informational sessions. The conference also provides good opportunities for networking that helps us recruit graduate students and develop collaborative projects with colleagues at other colleges and universities."

I know that P. Hamzah went to Harvard but it was incorrectly published that he and P. Noor went to the same university. They were attending schools in the same area, which certainly aided in the development of a relationship between the two.

Hi Cut1me, Emerson College is in Boston. It was founded in 1880, so it's been around for a very long time. Unfortunately I haven't come across any photos of P. Noor Hamzah at Emerson College.

Here's the link to Emerson College: http://www.emerson.edu/

How come she's not called Noor Hamzah, I wonder, when we , who live in Europe or US, work or attend a Uni courses, we are known with our family name, even if married, this was different in my country til about 35 years ago- so, I'm a bit puzzled she's called Noor Asem- anyway, it must be her- I read just days ago, Hamzah is attending Political Sciences at Harvard, what is she studying ? I can't help thinking she's going on with her own life in a time when she should be at her husband' side..... I really don't like her attitude, did she get married to a CP of Jordan, or to a man she was in love with ?

sorry, I did not read it, I replied be4e posting my previous message, proud of what, she should have been in Jordan..... at his side- at least, I read it in 1 of the hundreds of newspapers which wrote about Hamzah losing his title, well, QN was left- I'm quoting the newspaper- with a sour taste in her mouth.

Hi Tipper,

I think P. Noor Hamzah was in Jordan but was not photographed. She is hardly ever mentioned in the press -- QR seems to be very territorial. No other female member of the JRF receives as much coverage as she does. We hardly hear of or see Princess Rym, P. Ali's new wife. Or maybe P. Hamzah did not want her to be there to feel the same humiliation he probably felt during the opening of Parliament.

Also, P. Noor Hamzah was Noor Asem when she was not yet married. When she is mentioned as Noor Asem at Emerson, she was not yet married to P. Hamzah. Her name before she married P. Hamzah was HRH Princess Noor bint Asem; Asem being the name of her father, P. Asem bin Nayef.

Asem is her father's first name. She doesn't have a last name really so that's why she took on that name. It's not easy to just change your last name right after you get married so I'm sure she just kept it in school for the year after she was married. It's really no big deal.

I'm pretty sure that she's right there with Hamzah but she's never shown or written about by the Jordanian media.

I always thought that that might be the case because it's pretty sure that he goes to Harvard. I always thought that she might have been going to another school in Boston since there are so many there. It would make sense thought that neither of their schools would be mentioned in the media since they're in the same city. I think we thought the went to the same school since their schools were so close to each other.

I know that, she was Noor bin Al Aasem, her grandfather was Nayef, King Talal's younger brother- though... if she left US to KSA with her fellow students, she could not be in Jordan, at the same time, couldn't she ? humilation, yes, he must have felt it, that's for sure, though he was there, he didn't hide or something like that..... if he was feeling like that, I'm positive his wife should have been there, sitting next to him, thanx God Hashim was there, as I bet Ali is very satisfied with KA's betrayal to Hamzah, too.

Tipper, that article was from 2002. She went to KSA as a student during her sophomore year. She was not yet married to Hamzah. It's old news.

Right now I think she's being a full-time wife while P. Hamzah completes his studies. I'm sure she was in Jordan with him but is never photographed. KA and QR are afraid this young royal couple wil upstage them.

Here you can hear Prince Hamzah recite a translation of the Quran in English. I believe it is a part of the speech he gave in Britain after his father's death.

AMMAN, JORDAN: Jordan's Prince Hamzah bin al-Hussein (C), his wife Princess Noor (4th L), former MP Munir Sobar (3rd L) and Norma Batt (3rd R), the director of a school funded by the prince, pose with Circassian children after they performed a traditional dance during an end of the year performance in Amman 30 December 2004. This was prince Hamzah's first public appearance since King Abdullah II announced 28 November 2004 his decision to renounce his younger half-brother's title of Crown Prince, in a public letter explaning that the decision was to free Prince Hamzah to pursue 'other functions'.
