The infofoto site seems to be down at the moment, we'll have to exercise a little patience to see the new pictures.

Thank you M.lle Lilo for posting the pictures. I like both QRania's dress and hairdo of today. Princes Zein (on the 3rd picture) really changed a lot. I do not think that the shorter hairs suit her very much.

More from Day 1 - banquet

Brunei, Jordan ties further strengthened

HIS Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam yesterday consented to host a State Banquet in honour of His Majesty King Abdullah II, the King of Jordan, at Istana Nurul Iman.

. . . The Jordanian King took the opportunity to welcome His Majesty the Sultan to visit Jordan in the near future.

King Abdullah II also expressed his personal gratitude towards receiving the Royal Family Order of the Crown of Brunei, Darjah Kerabat Mahkota Brunei (DKMB) earlier on in the day as it symbolises "the enduring friendship between our families and peoples — a pledge of our continuing partnership, in an important and turbulent century". Brunei Times

Just before the banquet:

I think Queen Saleha and Princess Azrinaz should changes their sit position. That way the Queen can chat with Queen Rania rather than being left out while The King talking to the Sultan. Poor her.

Well it doesn't matter how they arrange it, one of the women will be left out. The perils of having more than one wife!

Humera,

How did you find all of those photos from Brunei Times? I went to the site and couldn't see any slideshows or anything of that nature with any of the stories on the visit. I'm wondering if the paper has any photos from Day 2, considering the Infofoto site is still down.

I think that it is the order of precedence: each king gets to sit next to the other one's queen, and as the Sultan's 2nd wife isn't queen she is 2 places away from him. Gosh I wouldn't like to be anyone's second wife. Or one of 2

Their Majesties visit Darulifta State Mufti, YSHHB School

Their Majesties King Abdullah II Ibni Al-Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and Queen Rania Al-Abdullah visited the Darulifta State Mufti building yesterday afternoon.

. . . . . . . . . The royal delegation was then led to the Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Islamic Exhibition Gallery, which houses antiquities from the personal collection of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam. Their Majesties visit Darulifta State Mufti, YSHHB School (article with photos - this link will expire within a week)

The Infofoto site is back up and has photos from Day 2 but none from Day 3. A number of the photos from Day 2 also show up as small thumbnails but fail to open into larger pictures within the individual galleries. The photos are also limited for the last engagement on Day 2, when I suspect the website problems probably began in Brunei.
