I guess the Lasik procedures she underwent didn't work out perfectly. She was so excited at the time, saying she'd been wearing glasses or contacts most of her life. Actually, she went to Atlanta for the procedure while KH was at Mayo Clinic. When she returned with copy of the tape of the procedure in hand, she said--and I believe this is in her book, as well--that the King really enjoyed watching the video over and over, but she couldn't bear to look at it!

no it didnt!her eyes must have been too bad.
i think she has cornea curvatures (dunno if its right translation in english) and my doc told me that when it is too hard - the procedure doesnt work perfectly!
so i guess she has it too - most people with really bad eyes have it and in an interview she said that she still has to wear lenses for driving the car or watching tv.

I believe that at some point they (as in QN & KH) must have discussed the succession; i can't believe that they didn't.

As for what i base my beliefs on; only on what i've read etc. Obviously i'm no expert on the in's and outs of the JRF. Just feel that QN must have lobbied for her son to be crown prince.
How long has Jordan been a kingdom and how many Kings has this country had? This may be the wrong place to ask but the succession discussion has made me wonder. Is it a new kingdom or an old one?

hi! Jordan became its own kingdom in 1916 after the Arab revolt and it has had 4 kings: King Abdullah I, King Talal, King Hussein, and the current monarch. they're a relatively young kingdom, in terms of Jordan's modern history. check out the Jordanian royals' official websites if you want to get an official version of their history.

hope it helped! :)

The land that became Jordan is part of the richly historical Fertile Crescent region. Its history began around 2000 B.C., when Semitic Amorites settled around the Jordan River in the area called Canaan. Subsequent invaders and settlers included Hittites, Egyptians, Israelites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Arab Muslims, Christian Crusaders, Mameluks, Ottoman Turks, and, finally, the British. At the end of World War I, the League of Nations as the mandate for Palestine and Transjordan awarded the territory now comprising Israel, Jordan, the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem to the United Kingdom. In 1922, the British divided the mandate by establishing the semiautonomous Emirate of Transjordan, ruled by the Hashemite Prince Abdullah, while continuing the administration of Palestine under a British High Commissioner. The mandate over Transjordan ended on May 22, 1946; on May 25, the country became the independent Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan. It ended its special defense treaty relationship with the United Kingdom in 1957.
Transjordan was one of the Arab states which moved to assist Palestinian nationalists opposed to the creation of Israel in May 1948, and took part in the warfare between the Arab states and the newly founded State of Israel. The armistice agreements of April 3, 1949 left Jordan in control of the West Bank and provided that the armistice demarcation lines were without prejudice to future territorial settlements or boundary lines. In 1950, the country was renamed the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to include those portions of Palestine annexed by King Abdullah. While recognizing Jordanian administration over the West Bank, the United States maintained the position that ultimate sovereignty was subject to future agreement.
