Seriously??? This makes more sense by the way, she looks nothing like 26 and if you think about it, if she graduated from Undergrad (Business) when she was 22 and she trained for another 2 years and has been in Jordan at JRA for 7 years, that makes her 32! You are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!

That means she is in PH`s age or maybe one year or less older than him. But why in all the news sites her age is 26 ?????

The online news in Jordan are not always trusted resources to be honest, they can easily make stuff up and publish news based on something they HEARD from X or Y (perhaps from her tribe), She can't be 26, given her long experience in the Aviation industry, I will try and get you the right info, I just need some time

She should; after so long a stay in Jordan? And her parents were born and raised there, so in their family home (in Canada) they spoke Arabic, I suppose. She has to be billingual, like Hamzah.

I do not undertand... Do you mean that they met 3 months before the wedding? I thought they had met each other four years ago or so... But they meet again three months ago... What does the article say exactly? God, I wish I would understand Arabic!!!!! I feel very stupid looking at the article, wanting to understand everything and I cannot! Thanks so much for the information, xavi83! Many, many thanks!

I agree with you, she should. But it doesn't mean that she does. Maybe she understands Arabic but she doesn't speak it. I do not know, as we can see in members of the JRF, living for years in Jordan is not always a guarantee of being fluent in Arabic. And this is something that I have never understood!

I don´t understand it too, Kleio. But seems that workers and nannies speak to children in English, therefore some princes and princesses do not speak a fluent arabic.

Finally, how old is Basma?

So it was not right when they say that he met her 4 years ago.

Salma some people say that she is 25 years old, while some other say that she is 32 years old. For me she looks 32 not 25, she looks older than hamza No one knows how old she is.

I've read everywhere that she was born in 1985. It means she's 26... And I think it's possible even if she looks older...

Alquds Alarabi newspaper is a reliable source ,but unfortunately not always right about Jordan. Anyway, Xavi translated the new points .. According to this article Basmah`s age is not more than 25 & she met PH 3 months ago when they participated together in a private air show took place in Wasdi Rum .. during the royal lunch the prince served his guests .. Basmah is the first royal bride descended from a well known Jordanian tribe since 40 years ago (not accurate cuz P. Mo married Taghreed Almajali on June 1981 -30 to 31 years ago).. their marriage was a great political & social massage to the nation which appears immediately in thousands of congrats thru social media... the ceremony was simple & took place in her grandfather`s small villa ... the rest of the article is copy/paste for the previous press reports.

Many, many thanks for the translation, Rossina! Do you really believe that they met each other just three months ago?... That's what I call a marriage-express! I would like to think that they met each other before...
I'm glad to see Jordanian people are happy with the marriage!

Perhaps someday Petra or Hamzah´s site will publish an official bio.
