maybe because she's wearing that big hat and glasses.
She looks the same in her close-up picture though.

Thanks for the thread, Humera. I've seen some of these pictures before but I'd never realised it was such a big event.

Great thread, Humera. Thank you. This is an old article from JTimes capturing the spirit of those days:

Royal family brings magic, keen interest to Arab Games

By Ziad Raad
Agence France Presse


AMMAN His Majesty King Abdullah and the Royal family have brought magic to the home teams and keen interest to the 9th Pan-Arab Games which they are hosting, in the fine tradition set by the late King Hussein.
A sports fan and athlete in his own right, King Hussein, who died in February after a long battle with cancer, raced cars, water-skied and had advanced belts in taekwondo and karate.

I really liked Rania's look back then - fresh and pretty, not too much make up.

Lovely pictures, where was the Games held after Jordan? After all there should have been 1 in 2003 if it's held every 4 years?

the games were held in Algeria after Jordan.
You can find the list of countries here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_Arab_Games

the games are supposed to be held every 4 years but because of the obvious turbulent situation in the middle east, the length of time between the games has fluctuated since the 1960s.
