Milan, Feb. 8 (Petra)-- Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah, an honorary citizen of Milan, visited the historical city, Thursday, where she and Princess Wijdan, Jordan's Ambassador to Italy, and Mayor Letizia Moratti took part in a class on cultural awareness at Dell’Infanzia School.

...The students welcomed the Queen by performing several songs about peace, in Italian, and greeted her with a peaceful message, in Arabic. The class room which Her Majesty visited was full of symbols of different cultures.

There was a Jordanian flag proudly hung up in the classroom with a welcome note written by the students, with their teacher's help, in Arabic. There was no shortage of rhetorical exchanges in both languages, as the Queen also bade them farewell in Italian. Petra

Lots of wonderful pictures from Petra:

Nice Pictures of the Queen, Some of the others links didn't work for me. Would of loved to seen the Picture of the the pope and the Queen....
To be able to stand in from so many people and talk is something i would have a hard time with. Wonder what it was like for Queen Rania to do it for the frist time. I mean it takes a little bit of guts to do it. Now i guess she can do it with her eyes close..Wonder if she ever had someone to guide her. Why I ask,...Is my husband has to do it all the time. I remember when he had to do it for the frist time, which was 20 years ago...Thier was over 1000 people... Queens is really good at what she does. Got to give that!
