A while back, a forum member was asking about someone on a flight that was addressed as "Your Majesty" and it was eventually sorted out that it was Queen Noor on a flight to NYC. As this was around Thanksgiving time, it makes me think that perhaps HM made the trip to be able to spend some precious time with her mother.

For sure in the US where she lived & died . Her three children queen Noor, Alexa & Christian Halaby are also there. As you know queen Noor spent most of her time after the death of king Hussein in the US.

As Rossina said the funeral was in USA. Queen Noor, her brother and her sister had a close relation with their mum. Lilo Doris was not neither Jordanian nor muslim so its normal she is buried in the States. King Abdullahs maternal grandfather was buried in Jordan because he lived there for 40 years.

That`s true Salma, the Gardiners continue living in Jordan even after their daughter`s divorce.
The late Colonel Walter Gardiner was buried at his/his daughter`s farm in Jordan Vally beside his late wife Doris Sutton Gardiner . ِAs far as i know, Doris requested before her death to be buried in her farm garden near to the flowers she loved. Her husband in turn asked to be buried near his wife.

May GOD rest their souls in peace.

Queen Noor's Facebook:
Quote:
Doris Carlquist Halaby, passed away on the morning of the 25th of December surrounded by her children. We celebrate her extraordinary life and also that she is finally at peace.
Doris Carlquist was born in 1918 to Frank E Carlquist, the mayor of Leavenworth Washington and May E. Ackroyd. In 1921 the family moved to Anchorage, Alaska because of opportunities provided by the gold rush. Doris could see Mt Whitney across Cooks Inlet from her porch and she loved sledding down the hills nearby. She described it as a place with 1,000 people and 10,000 cows.
Later the family moved to Spokane, WA, where she attended the Lewis and Clark High School, became the city tennis champion and majored in political science at the University of Washington.
In 1945 she married Najeeb Halaby, an Arab American navy test pilot who had just made the first transcontinental jet flight in US history who would become President Kennedy's FAA Administrator and Chair of PanAm Airlines. The couple lived, worked and raised their family in Washington DC, New York City, Los Angeles and lived briefly in Beirut, Lebanon where she was inspired to support Palestinian refugee initiatives throughout the remainder of her life. After the marriage ended in 1977, she never remarried and remained fiercely independent throughout her life serving on the boards of several companies and non profits including ANERA (American Near East Refugee Aid), AMIDEAST, the Foreign Policy Association and as Chair of New York's Cosmopolitan Club and the social services pioneering Stanley M. Issac's Neighborhood Center among others.
As she aged life seemed to become ever more compelling and delightful. Every flower was the most beautiful. Every little thing was wonderful, and she was the luckiest person in the world.
She loved and will be missed by her 3 children, Queen Noor Al Hussein of Jordan, Christian and Alexa Halaby, 10 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren.

Reading the Facebook page, although I am not that well read on Queen Noor and Jordanian royals, I've come to realize that the world has just lost a very remarkable woman who cared deeply for others, found beauty in just about anything and most importantly, had all of her family around her in her final day on this Earth.

I think they should be; she was their last grandparent.
With the parting of all grandparents, some epoch ends in one's life.

Doris C. Halaby, mother of Queen Noor of Jordan, dies at 97

Doris C. Halaby, whose husband was the administrator of what is now the Federal Aviation Administration under presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, and whose daughter became the queen of Jordan, died Dec. 25 at another daughter’s home in Washington. She was 97.

The cause was pneumonia, said her daughter Queen Noor.

Mrs. Halaby lived with her family in Washington from 1945 to 1954 and again from 1960 to 1965, when her husband, Najeeb E. Halaby, was FAA administrator. After many years in New York City, Mrs. Halaby returned to the District in 2009.

Doris Carlquist was born Sept. 9, 1918, in Leavenworth, Wash., where her father was mayor. As a child, she moved with her family to Anchorage, decades before Alaska became a state.

She completed high school in Spokane, Wash., where she was a champion tennis player. She was a political science graduate of the University of Washington. In 1945, she married Halaby, who was then a Navy test pilot who made the country’s first nonstop transcontinental flight in a jet aircraft. The family settled in Washington, where Mrs. Halaby raised three children...
