I agree, Haya looks lovely in all the shots. I think her showing respect for the UAE culture by wearing traditional attire is--well, just a thoughtful, respectful thing to do. It shows she takes her role there seriously. I do have to ask about the photos of her wearing the peach colored outfit while everyone else is in black--what is the basis for that? Is most of the traditional daywear for women black in colour. It just stands out so much as Haya is the only one in a different color--though I have seen photos of her in all black attire, as well. Just wondered about custom, etc........

The women in black are probably also wearing colourful caftans inside or jeans and tops or something else. They put on a black abaya over their clothes whenever they go out to places where men other than their husbands, sons, brothers etc. can see them or at home when they they're receiving guests. There's no law that requires them to wear it in the UAE but most locals/Gulfies wear it for different reasons. I'm sure somebody else can explain this alot better than me.

The abaya, which has been worn by women in the UAE for generations, has become entwined in the culture and tradition of the area. When UAE citizens are in Jordan, they would not wear traditional Jordanian clothing, and the reverse is true when Haya is in the UAE.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit an abaya boutique, you will see that they are quite beautiful. The style, fabrics and details of the current abayas sold in the UAE are individualized and very unique. Your shoes, jewelry and purses also are chosen to compliment the design of your abaya as well as the clothing you wear under it. Clothing worn underneath is just as important, because friends and family see your clothes when you take off your abaya at home and at weddings.


In the photos of Haya lately from the UAE, she is wearing the traditional clothing of Jordan. The women in black abayas are wearing the traditional clothing of the UAE, those other women are UAE citizens, and Haya is not a UAE citizen. Citizenship is reserved for UAE people only; one must be born there or born of UAE parents, neither of which applies to Haya.

Not being a citizen Haya has some liberty in how she dresses, several months ago she was on an official visit in the UAE wearing a pantsuit. There may have been some opposition to her dressing in a pantsuit which may be why she is wearing Jordanian traditional more often of late.

I have actually looked at abayas on the internet and thought they were quite lovely. Thank you for providing more detail on this. Is there a name to refer to the head coverings or veils women in UAE wear? I am ignorant on this so always resort to using the term "veil" which is likely not accurate.

I have another question about Haya you might be able to help me with. Her husband's wife, Hind, has the title Sheika. Haya is always referred to as Princess Haya. I had thought she would have a different designee after her marriage. Is it because she is not a UAE citizen?

You are welcome.

Referring to a covering for the head as a head scarf and covering for the face is a veil is totally acceptable and easily understood. Wearing veils is a choice, in some jobs where women come into contact with the public, they are prohibited from wearing the veil because the customer can not easily identify with whom they are doing business.

Hind was a Sheikha before she married, as Haya was a Princess prior to marrying, neither of their designations changed after they married.

This is not quite the same situation as Princess Sarvath when she continued wearing her national dress, but not that different either. It has to be pointed out that Princess Haya is wearing a predominately Palestinian style of dress, which none of the older women of the Jordanian royal family wear : Princess Basma, Princess Alia or the late Queen Zein. I still maintain that Princess Sarvath would have raised eyebrows at the time she married if she had adopted that style of dress, which has only come into vogue in the recent past.

Forgive my continued ignorance on the subject but what distinguishes a palestinian way of dressing vs. jordanian, etc. Whatever it is Haya is wearing--and I've seen photos of her in various kaftans--they are quite beautiful.

I wish more of the women of the JRF, in particular, would wear clothing reflecting the traditional attire of their country when abroad. It shows respect for one's homeland and culture IMO.

And thank you for explaining the head covering/veil question. :)

There are quite a lot of differences in the Jordanian and Palestinian styles of caftans. Nowadays, there is a synthesis of both styles which has eveloved and basically anything goes. For the Hashemite women, especially the older generation, it would have been looked at askance had they worn a Palestinian style of dress rather than a Hashemite style. As I have said, you never ever see Princesses Basma and Alia, I suppose the only full Hashemite princesses , in the sorts of caftans that the younger princesses wear these days. Queen Noor seems to have evloved her own style and sticks to it, but it is neither Hashemite nor Jordanian or Palestinian.

Outside of this forum, I have never seen it spelled Hayah. I'm curious as to how it is pronounced....I was thinking the obvious, but could be wrong.

Euston Park ride today
By A Correspondent

21 August 2005

DUBAI — General Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, will make his final preparations at Euston Park today, prior to the European Open Endurance Championship in less than a weeks time.

General Shaikh Mohammed and three of his sons, Shaikh Hamdan, Shaikh Ahmed and Shaikh Majid, who are also expected to ride at the European Open Championship, will take part in the EustonPark 120km FEI ride sponsored by Emirates International Endurance Racing.

The course designed by Sue Meadows and Diana Luke is divided into four stages of 36-36-31 and 17km.

The start and finish are directly in front of Euston Hall with the route passing through Euston Estate, The Kings Forest and HarlingForest that lies adjacent to Shadwell Stud owned by Shaikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance and Industry.

Since the heavy rain in previous days has taken the hardness out of the grass fields and sand tracks, the horses are expected to have an excellent going.

The ride starts at 6.30am today and the weather forecast is for a mild sunny day with temperatures of around 21 degrees.

Amongst the competitors are Princess Haya bint Hussein, who will represent Jordan at the Open European Championship and Australia’s leading rider Meg Wade, who is also having a trial run before the Europeans which take place at Compiègne, France on August 26.

Maktoum's decree sets up Equestrian Club

Aug 20, 2005 - 08:32 -

Dubai, 20 August, 05 (WAM) - H.H. Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai has issued a decree on the establishment of Dubai Equestrian Club, a Dubai government-owned body with financial and administrative independence.

Sheikh Maktoum also issued a resolution, in his capacity as Ruler of Dubai, appointing Princess Haya bint Al Hussein as Chairperson of the Dubai Equestrian Club's Board of Directors.

The decree also named Saeed bin Humaid bin Matar Al Tayer as Deputy Chairman of the board with Ahmed Abdullah Al Sheikh and Abdullah Ahmed Al Habai as members.

According to the decree, the new body shall own, operate and manage the existing Dubai Equestrian Club and any other facilities it builds.

It shall also seek to develop, enhance and promote equestrian in accordance with the international standards and to organise international events.

The club is mandated to formulate rules and regulations, to own and lease equestrian-related property and facilities and to carry out any business that may directly or indirectly contribute in achieving its objectives.

Princess Haya expressed thanks to Sheikh Maktoum and to General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and UAE Defence Minister for their confidence which shall motivate her to work hard for the betterment of the sport in the UAE.

Frankie Gets Proclamation Ride

Thu 25 Aug, 9:09 AM


Frankie Dettori has landed the plum ride on Proclamation in the William Hill Sprint Cup on Saturday week.

The Jeremy Noseda-trained colt is owned by Sheikh Mohammed's wife, Princess Haya Of Jordan, and won the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood last month but has never raced over the six-furlong trip of the Haydock Park feature.

"I spoke to Jeremy and can confirm that Proclamation is in top form for his Sprint Cup bid and that Frankie will ride him at Haydock," Sheikh Mohammed's bloodstock adviser John Ferguson told the Racing Post.

Princess Haya's Website

First off, I found it very interesting to read and visit her photo gallery. Many great photos. And I love the link to QA's site. Unfortunate one cannot download the photos and information on it. Clearly, PH was behind its construction and spent a lot of time and effort on selecting photos and obtaining quotes from everyone from former President Bush and Mrs. Bush to her sister, Abir (do I call her Princess Abir; I was never quite clear on that point.....).

One of the impressions I came away with after reviewing the site, articles and photos is that there is not much love for QN. She is in one photo and the selection of articles are telling; in each, she describes herself as growing up "quite alone" save for her close relationship with KH, who she talks about in glowing terms. But there is nary a mention of QN in any of them. In fact, she says things like she had to stay around "to protect Ali and Abir," and generally speaks of a nuclear family consisting of Ali, Abir, herself and KH.

This is quite a turnaround from her quotes prior to KH's death where she praises QN, saying "she was fantastic (as a stepmother); she was very hand's on; I don't think she could have done a better job!"

It left me thinking "was she saying these things to please her father and now is she expressing her dislike of QN via her website because these are her real feelings?" It's curious.....

There are links in the website to KA, KH, QA and QR's sites but none to Queen Noor's. I found that odd as QN has her site. But she's just a name in a list of queens of Jordan. The only ones in that list you can click on for more information are QA and QR.

So, for what it's worth, I feel this website says a lot about PH's relationship with QN--in all it doesn't say. Did anyone else get that impression after going through it and reading the articles, looking at the photos and realizing there is no link to QN's site?

Yes I also found it odd that under the "Jordanian First Ladies" section, only the links to Queen Rania and Queen Alia's bios were working.
There are a couple of pics of Queen Noor, one of them was from the wedding anniversary party in London. But atleast Haya seems to have a real affection for her sisters, King Abdullah, and i think the rest of her brothers.
I know its only natural for her or any daughter to speak warmly of her father and mother but King Hussein wasnt a perfect man and Noor certainly didnt force him to marry her.
I wonder if Princess Muna's kids would have a similar attitude towards Queen Alia had she been alive.

btw maryshawn, Abir doesnt the have the title of Princess, though she is mentioned as a member of the royal family on Haya's site. But then adopted children of royalty dont usually get royal titles.

I was just going through the first ladies' of Jordan page on her website. Queen Rania looks a little upset in her pic. And wasn't Dina's title a queen? I always thought that King Hussein had made her queen. Haya's website named her Princess Dina. Huh

And you're absolutely right about K Hussein's being perfect.

I thought so, too. Muna was the only wife to be called Princess. Yes, that photo of QR is not her best; she looks very serious and kind of upset about something.

I think its from her visit to Turkey in March of 2004. She's wearing the same clothes, the hair and earrings are the same.
You're right about Dina, she was given the title of Queen.
