Queen Noor's grandfather was born in Lebanon and left the Arab world as a child. Her grandmother was Irish. So on her father's side she is half Arab Christian half Irish. Her mother's family were from Sweden.

Basically because you do not have much choice of religion in Ireland, just denomination. In the Arab world you can be Muslim or Christian or Jewish. So it is better to be clear. Ditto Sweden. And especially some eighty or so years ago when Queen Noor's father would have been born.

Her granfather came from Halab, in Syria, he was half- Syrian and half- Lebanese, but he was born in Syria. Her grandmother was American born. This woman's ancestors came from Scotland and England.

The actress Sherine Seif El Nasr

Dear Carla, This is Soraya remember me?

Ok to settle this actress cousin issue let me give you the scoop:

The actress is called Sherine (pronounced Shireen) Seif El Nasr. She is not related to Noor but to Prince Ali and Princess Haya. She is actually their second cousin. Her aunt (mother's sister) is a Touqan and is the mother of Queen Alia , King Hussein's first wife, mother of Ali and Haya. She actually resembles Haya to some extent.

I don't think she is close to them anymore, because of some embaressing crazy things that she is alleged to have done. She is actually used by some press and gossiper to embaress Prince Ali , Haya and the Touqan family. I'll post a pic of her soon.

Where did you guys hear that Sherine is Queen Noor's relative?? They must have mistaken Noor for Alia.

Cheers ,

Soraya

She doesn't have to wear this because she has other beautiful jewellery options. Does anyone know why she is wearing this medallion alot lately, and its possibly siginificant meaning, giver, whatever?
Interesting photos.....and question. I noticed she was not wearing her blue evil eye bracelet she often wore (will try and post) for several years. This pendant is a new thing I think.

She is clearly fascinated by evil eye jewelry though.

I would like to know why she does not wear her wedding rings anymore. She always wears a ring on her pinky finger but that's it. Have long wondered about significance of that ring.

Anyone have answers?

Thank you.

Queen Noor's first public statement on P. Hamzah's demotion:

5:59pm (UK)
Ousted Crown Prince Will Continue to Serve, Says Queen

"PA"



Jordan’s Queen Noor said today her son will continue to serve Jordan, despite King Abdullah’s decision to strip him of the crown as heir to the Hashemite throne.

Noor neither referred to Abdullah nor his decision – an unusual move in Jordan, where the absolute monarch is venerated by his family and subjects alike.

The absence of any mention of Abdullah in Noor’s written statement underlined her disappointment in the ousting of her son that she had hoped would rule Jordan.

Abdullah had chosen Prince Hamzah, now a 24-year-old American college student, as his heir hours after their father – King Hussein – died of cancer in February 1999. The designation was widely seen out of respect for Hussein, who is known to have favoured Hamzah among his 11 children from four marriages. The late king often described Hamzah publicly as the “delight of my eye”.

In a written statement, Noor said Hamzah “has always been a source of pride and joy for me, his family and his father King Hussein whose indomitable faith lives on in him.”

“God willing, he will continue to fulfil King Hussein’s wishes for him to serve Jordan,” added Noor, who is touring the United States. “My faith in him and in our beloved Jordan is constant and undiminished.”

On Sunday, Abdullah – who enjoys absolute powers which include dissolving parliament and ruling by decree – stripped his half brother and heir of his title as crown prince in an abrupt shake-up aimed at redeeming the full power the king inherited from Hussein.

The king said he wanted to relieve Hamzah of his duty and give him space to undertake more responsibilities in state affairs.

A day later, Hamzah told Abdullah he was conceding to “the command of my elder brother out of my loyalty, love and obedience.”

Hamzah is Hussein’s son from his fourth marriage, to New York-born Lisa Halaby, who became Queen Noor when she converted to Islam upon her marriage to Hussein in 1978.

Under the country’s constitution, the current heir is the king’s eldest son – Hussein, now age 10. The king may also bestow the crown upon his oldest brother, Faisal, 41.

Noor Responds

Interesting......so she does have some unstated irritation on subject.......The biggest snub is to totally ignore someone, isn't it? Which she seems to have done by not even mentioning KA. Do you have complete post/message or link to it? Just curious 'tho you have the gist, I'm sure. Thanks!
