Hi Everyone!
I am getting a little confused here, so I hope you guys can help me....
Is HRH Queen Noor the queen of Jordan? Because, if that is so, HRH Queen Rania and HRH King Abdulla can't also be king and queen of Jordan right?
SO.....could someone tell me how it actually is?
Thanx!
Queen Noor doesn't really have any power, but she just retains a title of Queen. The Official Queen is HRM Queen Rania. Correct me if i'm wrong someone :).

:)

There are several countries that have two Queens. They usually go by the title of Queen Mother or Dowager Queen. Queen Noor is the wife of the former King. She was allowed to keep her title when the new King ascended the throne. Abdullah allowed the title to remain out of respect for his father and to honor his father's wishes. Noor was not given the title Queen Mother because she is not the current King's Mother. She is a Dowager Queen. Rania was given the title by her husband and is the current Queen.

Before Queen Mary died in 1953, Britain had three Queens: Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, and Queen Mary. :)

[FONT=Geneva][SIZE=1][COLOR=green]Hello! I'm new here. I the Jordan Royal Family especially CP Hamzi. I was sooo shocked when he got married!! :(

Um... I think if Q Noor was dating anyone, she'd most definitely keep it under wraps!

XO

You know I went to the Petra site and saw that Q Rania also had pictures on the same day. What is so interesting is that QR's pictures are so much better than Q Noor's pictures. I think there's still a huge competition between the 2 queens.

No competition at all. Queen Noor decided on her own to keep a low profile .

I don't think that there's any competition between the two. But we can never know. They're both great anyway :)

I heard that Q Noor was coming to Toronto in Feb. I wanted to see if I could go and see her but I don't know if she already came here or not. Does anyone know anything about this?

I know that Queen Noor will be in Vancouver in June, as part of the "Unique Lives and Experiences" tour. I'm sure she will be doing the same in Toronto.... perhaps check out the website of the tour and see the dates..... sorry I don't know the link

Queen Noor was in Toronto for this thing called Lifefest on March 12th I think. She gave a speech and there was a question and answer period. Does anyone know anything about that? I read in the newspaper that she talked about her life, her late father and her late husband, King Hussein.

I was supposed to go and see her but I had to go to a funeral. I was so upset!

It was called LifeFest, taking place March 12-14. I attended the event and was able to speak with Queen Noor for a few minutes through my press credentials. Queen Noor is a very graceful and eloquent woman. Her speech was very well written and spoken with great gentleness, especially when she spoke (quite fondly) about her late husband. It was evident the impact he had on her life and how much she continues to love him and think of him each day.

I am sorry that you were not able to make it Bandoora; it was a very interesting occasion.

The Life Fest thing was actually advertized on tv almost a month in advanced. But I ofcourse, was too busy with school. I didn't see much coverage of her visit in the media though.
Here are some pics from the event

Noor has lost a LOT of weight--you can really see it with the blue outfit she's wearing in.

Hey Does Queen Noor Still Live In Amman? From The Recent Pictures On These Forums, It Looks As If She Isn't Involved With The Royal Family. What's Going On?

Queen Noor has homes in Jordan, England and in the Washington DC area. However, she is not the Queen consort. She is the widow of the previous sovereign, and her role is now different. She is involved in numerous charities in Jordan and abroad, including landmines. You might want to read her autobiography, Leap of Faith. One of the recent issues of Hello features as interview with Noor, and she talks about her role, and her belief that Rania is the queen now.
