I don't think we'll be seeing QN in Jordan anytime soon...maybe for KA's funeral.

it could be Princess Alia, maybe they were close, all I know is that QN has always been close to Princess Basma, her sis -in-law. Btw, I read that Q Zein was not so fond of Queen Noor.....

I once looked Princess Dina and QN on TV, during Pan- Arab games, back in '99, they looked to be in very good terms.

Everyone in the JRF looks to be on very good terms when seen on tv. They're not the type to let their family problems show in public. But, no one can stop the rumor mill right?

well, after a few days I could watch QN and Muna, at the stadium, they had been left alone, every1 had gone out to congratulate with Jordan team, 1 could c they were totally estranged, embarassed, and not talking to each other or even looking at each other, I felt sad for Noor.....

Queen Noor "Comes Into Her Own" (KH quote)

During the Gulf war, QN visited refugee camps--always dressed in a khaki skirt, boots and demin shirt--and literally rolled up her sleeves to ensure those in need received supplies and help until they could return home. She relied on her rolodex of famous friends, like Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic Airlines, who shipped in tons of blankets, food and water w/in 24 hours notice. QN made sure it was distributed by personally being at the camps daily--often collapsing at home after a day which began at 5 AM and lasted till 11 PM.

Waving to refugees as QN starts her day during Gulf crisis. KH praised her efforts, while "mired in profound depression himself." He smoked cigarette after cigarette, blaming himself for not being able to intervene successfully. QN began a PR campaign when the US publicly threatened reducing aid to Jordan (which privately did not happen as the US did not want Jordan to become de-stablized so it was all PR for the public who didn't understand KH's support of Saddam Hussein). Nonetheless, QN's efforts of putting together small dinners of foreign reporters with the royal couple were effective. She was a clever Queen and a great asset for the country at that time.

I remember that during the Gulf war Her Majesty was constantly helping rfugees and visiting their poor places and she tried to build a bridge between West and East countries.

THe RF does not know what they lost. WHy do they have to shun her so much? W/o her many ppl would not even know about Jordan. This is truly sad the way she is treated.
P.S. I remember ass a little girl-maybe 7/8-I read a magazine with her and KH in it. They were visiting one of the bedouin places. From that time I have had been interested in her and what she did. But I guess the reason she is hunned b/c she is truly good and more popular. Therefor this is a threat to QR and KH and Muna

Can QN speak Arabic, I have many tapes in which she speaks English, I heard she can only understand a bit of Arabic, I wonder, she talks to her kids in English, but in which language do the siblings speak to each other ? Do Ali and Hayah talk English or Arabic, what about Alia, KA, Feisal to each other or to QN's kids ? Did they talk Arabic to their father or English ? I think QR's accent is terrible, not British nor American, she's fluent in the language, but her accent ...OMG !

This article is a very good mix of QN at glamorous occasions and working with the people. She is always appropriately dressed and yet very lovely. Excellent article!

thanx for the pics maryshawn.
Although I do wish they'd come up with something a little more original than "The Desert Queen"
Thats what they called Rania when she was on an NBC special a few years ago!
There's quite a few queens in the Middle East. Im sure they cant all share the title.

On the contrary, Queen Elizabeth II nursed all four of her children. This has been confirmed by royal biographers, former royal staff, etc. QEII was not a bad mother by any means. But remember QEII and QN's roles are completely different. QN was the consort of a sovereign; QEII is the sovereign. Big difference. I wish people would stop bashing QEII. She and P. Philip tried their best given their circumstances - I think Charles is an ungrateful son.
