Hi everyone!

Queen Noor's Official site has been updated and has a new design. There are wonderful transcripts of her speeches, information about her daily projects, a detailed biography, etc. There are also fantastic photos of the Queen as a child, teenager, young woman and many of her with her family.

I know some of you have read Queen Noor's autobiograhpy. So maybe you all can hellp me with this.

I know that her given name is Lisa.. how exactly did Noor come into being, does the name have special meaning. I guess Queen Noor sounds a lot better than Queen Lisa...


I had been wondering about this for a while and decided to ask.

The name "NOOR" means "light" in arabic or "enlightment". With her marriage, her name became Noor-Al Hussein...ie, "light-of Hussein". It is the name the the late king Hussein had chosen for her when she converted and married him.

www.yahoo.com - The colour fuschia with all the intricate beading from this traditional outfit creates a stunning effect and Queen Noor looks absolutely radiant.

QUEEN NOOR TAKES CENTRE STAGE IN SOUTH AFRICA

9 SEPTEMBER 2003
Queen Noor of Jordan stepped into her role as patron of the World Parks Congress (WPC) on Monday, joining two South African leaders – President Thabo Mbeki and his predecessor, Nelson Mandela – at the once-in-a-decade global environment meeting in Durban.

Radiant in pink, Queen Noor shared centre stage with the two statesmen as they kicked off the ten-day congress, which aims to address issues related to protected areas around the globe, from national parks to marine sanctuaries. The 52-year-old widow of King Hussein spoke of the importance of partnerships as the only viable option for the preservation of the environment, and Mr Mandela promoted youth involvement as the key to the
future.

President Mbeki, meanwhile, pointed out the links between alleviating poverty and improving conservation, saying: "It is critically important that alternative means of livelihood be found for the poor in the world, so that they are not forced to act in a manner that undermines the global effort to protect these ecosystems, driven by hunger and underdevelopment."

More than 2,500 dignitaries, local leaders, businesspeople and conservationists from over 170 countries are taking part in this year's event, which is run by the World Conservation Union.

Lovely pictures, Paulette. :flower:

The dress Queen Noor is wearing looks a lot like the one she wore to her son Hamzah's wedding. Did the Queen comment on her son's engagement/wedding at all during her book tour in Madrid? And does anyone know if the Queen will be paying a private visit to the Spanish royals? Queen Noor and Queen Sofia are quite close, I believe.

'LEAP OF FAITH' BRINGS QUEEN NOOR TO MADRID

18 SEPTEMBER 2003
Queen Noor of Jordan was warmly received in Madrid this week as she presented her new book, Leap Of Faith: Memoirs Of An Unexpected Life.

In the book she reveals the details of her life with King Hussein, from their first chance meeting in 1976 until his death from cancer many years later.

The work also tells of her experiences as an American woman adjusting to life in the Middle East. And light is cast on some of the region's key political players, including Yasser Arafat and Saddam Hussein, as the king tries to broker peace.

The queen, 52, has been taking an increasingly high-profile role in international affairs in recent years. Hailing from a prominent Arab-American family, she was educated at Princeton University, before marrying King Hussein in 1978.

Since then, she has used her position to promote women's rights and the work of the United Nations. She is also head of the Noor Al Hussein Foundation, which campaigns to improve living conditions for the people of her country.

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!
