i too felt that noor was a little "uptight" during this interview compaired to the others she's done. i did get a bit of a shock from her comments on the crown prince hamzah and the rania rift issue. i am happy to see that she gets along with her children, step children, and various other family members and that she still leads an active life.

hmm.....i didnt find her uptight. Perhaps trying her best to give the right responses?
The only thing I was surprised about was the fact that King Abdullah still hadn't spoken to her about his decision to relieve Hamzah of his title.
It was very nice to see her speak warmly of all her family, kids, step-kids, step-grand kinds. She mentioned that she's known as 'tata' to her grand kids, that even though her own kids dont have children, she has been a grandmother to her husband's grand children.
Larry King also asked her if she was Jordanian or American. She said in her heart she feels that she is both but she is a citizen of Jordan, not the USA.
She mentions that her family home is in Jordan, but that she has a small place in Washington. But she basically lives out of a suitcase.
She also said that one of her kids is studying in Japan. Does anyone know which one?

Okay the transcript is online.
I hope everyone checks it out. The interview did cover a range of subjects including politics, family, royalty etc.

I'm guessing it's Princess Iman...we all know P Hashim is at GU, P Hamzah is at Harvard and P Raiyah I believe is at some ranch somewhere where she's learning horse-riding or something like that, so that leaves P Iman...anyone else care to venture a guess.

She has a small place in D.C.? I thought she sold her house there? She lives out of suitcase, what does that mean? Does it mean she travels a lot?

yes. She's always travelling.
She did say she has a small place in DC. Perhaps she bought a smaller house?

Here's the excerpt from the transcript:

KING: Where do you live?

NOOR: I live out of suitcases, that's the way I answer that question mostly. Our family home is in Jordan. And I have four children at university at the moment and one studying in Japan right now. So, I spend a fair amount of time here. I have a small place in Washington, which is where they can bring their dirty laundry, I can feed them, burp them and send them back out into the larger world. And...

A smaller house? Wow can she adjust to a smaller house considering where she was used to living? I swear the more info I gather on QN the more I respect I acquire for her, she is such an exceptional lady, very humble, kind, intelligent, poised, and well-spoken...she's perfect (okay I'll stop now )...I so want to meet her someday, does she come to the UK? Even if I were to meet her I'd never know what to say to her, I think I'd make a fool of myself because I'll probably be gawking at her in admiration cuz she's my hero and I know that is too big a responsibility to place on someone, but she is my hero and she deserves that kind of respect, along with her late husband his majesty king hussein.

I was just surprised you see because when there was an announcement that she'd old her house I assumed she didn't live in D.C. anymore, but rather I was under the impression that she lives in Mc Clean, which I'm quite sure isn't in D.C., or is it? ...it's a good thing she lives in D.C. still, because when I thought she lived in Mc Clean I was always wondering why she didn't live close to any one of her kids, but now that we know she lives in D.C. well at least she is in the same proximity as P Hashim:), which is good cuz it's always great to have family around. Wonder where in D.C. she lives

when LK asked her about Hamzah's dismissal, it was the only time she lost her self- control, it was as she didn't expect the question, and surely did not know what to say.... she was truly embarassed, it's odd, she should have known better..... I felt sorry for her, too- she could not even manage to give a straight reply, in the end, she said- I have no idea- :(

Well I kind of think that PHashim is studying in Japan...anyone ever heard of study abroad? Plus would they let a girl study in Japan all alone?

Anyway I wish her hair was lighter. But she did seem more real though.

Is her necklace the evil eye?

well I only made an assumption. I dont know for sure if she actually bought a new smaller house. Though it may be true. Obviously if she sold her first house, it makes sense that she bought a new one if she's still living in washington.
She did say that she will be on tour for her new paperback edition so perhaps she'll come to London for that and you might get a chance to see her.
