Death & Funeral of King Hussein
Hi all.

I have a question about which royals attended King Hussein's funeral in Jordan. This is the list I can come up with from the photos I remember seeing at the time:

-King Juan Carlos, Prince Felipe, Jamie de Marichalar (husband of Infanta Elena) and Inaki Urdangarin (husband of Infanta Cristina) of Spain
-King Constantine, Prince Pavlos, Prince Nikolaos, Carlos Morales (husband of Princess Alexia, who was a goddaughter of King Hussein) of Greece
-Prince Charles

Can anyone else fill in the list?

And I recall seeing pictures of Queen Sofia greeting Queen Noor (the Spanish and Jordanian royals were quite close, I recall) but I thought that women are not permitted at funerals as is custom in Jordan? Was there a seperate service for the women to attend?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Princess Muna - the former Toni Gardiner - Hussein's British-born second wife and the mother of King Abdullah.

She went to live in Britain following her divorce from the king, but was in Jordan during Hussein's final illness,visiting him frequently at the hospital with other members of the royal family. Muna had been little seen publicly in Amman for some years, but on Tuesday she re-emerged into view, joining Queen Noor and other royal relatives in receiving condolences from Jordanian women. In addition to Abdullah, she had a second son and twin daughters with Hussein.
