kinda of weird, isn't it? He has been studying in US since age 11, so I assume he has got lots of american friends and g/fs, maybe he has been changing the last years, it's just both the brothers want to reject the N. American part of them.

I hate to disappoint but I'm afraid I don't know much more... It seemed like he pretty much only hung out with Jordanians, often not even Georgetown students...obviously he talked to Americans (like my friend, but they only hung out a couple of times). He never talked about being a royal, ever, and she said you never would have guessed he was anything other than a regular international student except that he had a cool car with diplomatic tags (which she got to ride in!)

A car w/ diplomatic tags! WOw! SO he could park anywhere?!? But how did he get that? I know he is the son of a king and queen, but...
Anyway, I am a bit disappointed that he did not have American friends. I really wish he did. That kind of makes me sad. I just don't understand why he would not want American friends. So does your friend have anymore contact w/ him or is it the end sine he left Georgetown. Also what was his hair like and how did he dress? Ok I really did not mean that question (but if you know the answer, don't hesitate to). So did your friiend know of any Americans that he hanged out with at all? Thank you.

He pretty much only hung out with other jordanians, or some of the international students she said. I should get her to join this and talk about meeting him.
no escort, no bodyguards, I'm sure he had them.

Oh I have to agree with you on that.

I'm not surprised that he's the religious sort, I mean looking at all his public appearances wearing Arabian garb, and when they take pics of him doing his prayers, he looks very khusyuk (absorbed in prayer). And I'm very glad that he's not the fast and furious kind of guy, since most Arab princes with cash to burn take advantage of their names/titles to live a decadent life.

By the way, since he hangs out with jordanians a lot and other international students, is he more comfortable speaking arab or english? Which seems more like his first language?

I think they probably had American friends,but maybe their closest friends were non-Americans

He didn't have any bodyguards, the only time he might have would have been when King Abdullah came for his honorary degree. I think the other Jordanians definitely had American friends, but my friend got the impression that P.Hashim didn't like hanging out with Americans very much at all, and really didn't hang out with Georgetown students. I mean, he was older than most people in his class...

According to Georgetown people, he wore his hair kind of longish, wore Jeans and t-shirts or polo shirts a lot. Sounds like a typical american college boy. His car was a Silver GM Yukon (SUV)

It seems like there are a lot of Muslims at Georgetown U---and it also seems like all the Jordanian royals end up attending Georgetown sooner or later!:)

HI all this is my first posting. Maybe P.Hamzah will go back to his unit which he was in charge of. But i guess he may have bigger role to play. Also for P. Hashem he is i think a first liuetnant or captian, so there is possibiltiy for him to go back there.

Any talk on his recent interest in traditional dress?

yes Hamzah and Feisal have frequently been sworn in as regents, and Ali has too I believe a few times. Im not sure if Hashem has been regent before. I dont recall seeing any pics of Petra.

What do they do during their regency? I know what it means, but it seems almost casual here lol.

They basically act as the head of state in the country while the king is gone. But I'm sure that they don't make any important decisions for him unless he's really unable to make them. Hamzah was always sworn in as regent when the king left because he was CP. Now it seems that it's always either Ali or Faisal.

Here are pics from, I believe 2001 of when Hashim was regent. I am so happy he is regent. I believe this was from an earlier Petra.gov.jo

But in the petra pic that was posted today, on his outfit his name is on it: Hashim bin Al Hussein:)

Gosh you know what. I just remembered the last time PHashim was regent, the Israeli embassy in Jordan was attacked or something like that. He seemed to handle the situation well.

But upon thinking on this, I think it was respectable to have the next most senior male royal to offer condolences to the family and to be there.

You know, this has been on my mind a long time ago. Does it seem as if PHashim was more in the scene b/f PHamzah was stripped of his crown princely title than now?
