I totally agree.

I've posted this before in response to someone who blames Felipe and Letizia for Mary Donaldson that didn't attend the wedding in Spain, she said its too bad for Felipe and Letizia for not scheduling their wedding better.

here's the link http://www.lestribunesroyales.com/forums/i...pic=6029&st=160

or please read below, i copied & pasted it

Crown Princess Mary should have been there. Too bad Felipe and Letty didn't schedule their wedding better.
Why are you blaming Felipe and Letizia for Mary that did not attend?

So would you also blame Hamzah and Noor for not scheduling their wedding better?

Its a choice actually. I admire Felipe and Letizia for making time to attend Fred&Mary's even though its a week before their wedding and for planning to attend Hamzah&Noor's a week after their wedding. They're a very considerate, professional and unselfish couple.

Why didn't Fred&Mary just relax for a week in beautiful places in Denmark or better yet do what Felipe & Letizia are doing now. IMO its selfish of them to fly right away to Tanzania- they don't care if they miss the Wedding of the Prince and Princess of Asturias that will happen only once. Why can't they postpone that honeymooning? They would have so many many more opportunities to be with themselves, a second honeymoon, a third, their several vacations in the future.
Yeah..i dont think the bride and groom should have to reschedule their wedding simply because Mary and Frederik cant make it. Why should one couple be given special treatment when you consider the hundreds of other royals that attend these weddings. I think in the end it all comes down to the fact that if Frederik and Mary had wanted to attend the wedding, they would have. They could've taken a few days off their honeymoon like Felipe and Letizia. The guests should be accomodating for the sake of the bride and groom and NOT the other way round!
I wasn't expectiong Frederik and Mary to be at the Jordanian wedding since no one from the jordanian royal family, or any other middle easterm royal family as far as I can tell, was in Denmark to attend their wedding.
As far as Felipe and Letizia's wedding is concerned, I think Frederik and Mary didnt show up because they didn't want to interrupt their honeymoon, and thats a decision they're entitled to make. But that still makes Felipe and Letizia the more considerate couple to me.

I was in Jordan yesterday, and there was no big deal at all. Even in Aqaba, where they are having more celebrations today.

I see a lot of tension between Noor and Rania. I don't like what either of them wore--either wear traditional or modern--combining the two doesn't work!

I thought Noor wore traditional
Rania's was a bit more modern. I thought both were pretty.
The whole traditional/modern, eastern/western fusion theme has always been an inspirational and important part of fashion..and it works most of the time.

I missed seeing Frederick and Mary there, myself, but I guess they just wanted to realx and enjoy their honeymoon by themselves, and I can't blame them for that. :flower:

I thought I read somewhere that Kofi Annan & Bill Clinton would attend the wedding. Is that correct? Are they going to attend the more private functions at Aqaba?

Am I hallucinating?

All know that Rania is the Queen and Noor is the Queen Dowager. Noor lost her husband and only has her children left, she deserves some happiness!
Noor is not the queen dowager. She remains Queen Noor, and is the widow of King Hussein. Like Noor, I am a younger widow, and I can tell you that despite the loss of our spouses, we do go on to live normal lives, albeit different. Noor has a lot more than just her children .

I loved Rania's dress, she always looks exquisite. Queen Noor has had too much plastic surgery. Letizia looked amazing. I loved the dress and the color. Mette Marit as always looks dowdy.

They probably weren't invited. The Jordanians weren't invited to their wedding.

I feel sad for Prince Ali being the bodyguard of his brother the king even in the wedding…He should have been the king as he is the only one from an Arabic Muslim mother, Queen Alia… It is said that Queen Noor was behind eliminating Ali from the throne line….God knows..
Why should having an arabic mother make Ali more eligible to be king than Abdullah or Hamzah?

Princess Muna & Queen Noor have given their lives to Jordan. Despite the divorce Princess Muna has continued to live and work in Jordan even once her children became adults. Queen Noor the same. She promotes Jordan to the western world and has tried to do so much for the arabic/muslim culture to counteract the damage done by Saddam Hussien & the Taliban.

From what I have heard about Ali he has been a playboy and obviously not mature enough to be considered as a future king.

I am of the opinion that Hamzah will never be king as Abdullah will, in the fullness of time, make his own son Crown Prince. I think Hamzah knows this and is comfortable with the eventual outcome. I think he is very like his father and wants only what is best for Jordan. [/b][/quote]
Being a playboy didn&#39;t disqualify KA from being king, so why should Ali have been disqualified from being king? The only difference is KA was married, and his playboy days were long behind him by the time King Hussein passed. Whereas Ali was probably still womanizing during that time.

Agree. And in some of the photos, you can see her face and neck are redder than the rest of her skin, as though she&#39;s just had a chemical peel or something.

I heard that Ali was kicked out a few Ivy League schools.

I can&#39;t picture King Abdullah as a playboy.


It really doesn&#39;t matter where their mothers came from. I think that King Hussein chose King Abdullah to be king because he was his eldest son and he chose Prince Hamzah as crown prince because he thought that he would be the best man for the job.

I was under the impression that there was going to be a banquet today. Did it happen and no pictures were taken or is it being held tomorrow?
