I'm so confused. I thought Haya was one of Noor's kids. I understand now that she was a child of Queen Alia. Did Noor raise her? Why does she live in Ireland now? Is she close with Alia's relatives? And who are the twin sisters? Children of Hussein? Or of Alia?

Thanks for the beautiful photos! She's definitely a very pretty young woman. Rania is still tops in my book, but Haya is very attractive.

Bubbette--to answer your question.

1) King Hussain and Queen Alia had 3 children: Haya and Ali, and they adopted Abeer. The queen died when Ali was 1 year old. The King remarried Noor shortly after and Noor "raised" Abeer, Haya and Ali.

2) Haya now lives in France and Jordan, but spends most of her time in Paris. She lived in Ireland and Germany before Paris b/c of her training.

3) Haya is pretty close to her mother's relatives, but b/c she lives far way she doesn't see them as much as she would like. She's very close to Ali though.

4) The twin sisters are Princess Aisha and Zain. They're King Abdullah full sisters--their mother is Princess Muna.

I hope this answers your questions.

Princess Haya is indeed a very beautiful woman. Not just beauty but with brains.

Even though her family has a vast amount of wealth yet she never neglects those who are in great need. Just look at the charity works she has done and a number of organizations she supports. She is one of the remarkable and challenging woman in our times.

Abeer is a girl's name in Arabic. I think they adopted her after her parents were killed when a helicopter or plane fell on their house. Very ironic that only a couple of years later queen alia died in a helicopter crash. Really sad. I think she was the love of king hussain's life.

It's really true Nicole. It was sad on the royal family's part but also on Abeer's side. But it is good that they had adopted her so that she also felt the love of her siblings and parents.

"Royal princess Haya al-Hussein, the half-sister of King
Abdallah II of Jordan, will skipper the first Pan-Arabic women's team
in a one-off match against the women's team of English Premiership
side Chelsea.

The match has been pencilled in for February 5 in Dubai and is the
brainchild of the soccer-mad princess who has already made a name for
herself by representing Jordan in horseriding at the 2000 Olympics in
Sydney. The 30-year-old Princess Haya is the daughter of the late
King Hussein. Her love of football is well known and the princess
openly encourages the sport in Jordan, where she has also recently
announced the forming of the first women's national football team.
The team to face Chelsea women will be composed of players from the
surrounding Arab countries."

Yes, a team in Jordan. Quatar was working on one last summer. Soon women will be playing football all over the Middle East! Yes! Brava to Haya!

Princess Haya of Jordan talks on the phone as she takes a stroll with Emirati women during a training session of female players of the All Women Arab soccer team in Dubai 04 February 2004. The princess was supposed to take part in the training and upcoming match, but had to back out due to a foot injury. The team, the first ever made up of women from all over the Arab world, will play 05 February against the British female Chelsea soccer club as part of events held during the Dubai Shopping Festival.

And with members from Chelsea. For those of you who don't know, Fly Emirates is their regular sponsor. No doubt one of the reasons they were picked. That and them being a successful team that can afford to send their players to Dubai. Last weekend a bunch of games in English women's soccer was cancelled due to the bad weather. Looks good in Dubai. Ironically, the Chelsea women are not one of the top teams for women's soccer though in England.

She's so pretty :) I wonder why she's wearing a head scarf. I don't think that she has to wear one in Dubai.

She's wearing a traditional outfit, so maybe it's part of that?

You're very welcome! I too admire her.... she is very understated and dignified. I also love that she wore that traditional dress too.
