Woooooow!

I completely didn't expect that!

Their Majesties The King and the Queen are surely bursting with joy!

First their older daughter said "yes", and now their firstborn son and heir heard "yes"!!!



Congratulations, Congratulations, CONGRATULATIONS to Crown Prince Hussein and Rajwa, the future Queen of Jordan!

The bride to be looks a bit older than the crown prince while in reality she is only 2 months his senior. I guess Hussein himself just looks a bit younger than his 28 years...

Congrats to the couple! I had no idea he was dating but I assume they've seen each other for a while as it quite a daunting task to take on for the until now anonymous Rajwa/Ragwa.

I wonder whether her mother is alive and 'not to be seen'... as the only women in the pictures are the future bride herself and queen Rania

Looks like the bride's father is the former chair of an Insurance Company (Amana Cooperative Insurance Co); see Bloomberg.

Elsewhere (relationshipscience) I am reading: "Khaled bin Musaed Al-Seif is President & Chief Executive Officer at El-Seif Group of Cos." It is one of the top-25 companies in Saudi Arabia, so money won't be an issue. Within the El-Seif Group he has multiple companies, so he clearly is a successful businessman. See also this profile.

And some more information about the family on Royanews: the family apparently are the local sheiks in Al-Attar.

Her full name is: Azza bint Nayef Abdulaziz Ahmed al-Sudairi.

Given the prominence of the family, I wouldn't be surprised if the bride's mother is indeed somehow related to Hussa bint Ahmed al-Sudairi (the mother of the famous 7 (and one more son and 4 daughters)). Of course there are many Ahmeds, but it seems both Azza's paternal great-grandfather is called Ahmed al-Sudairi as well as the grandfather of the Sudairi seven. So, if we are talking about the same Ahmed, the bride to be would be a cousin twice removed from the current king.

Rajwa - Azza - Nayef - Abdulaziz - Ahmed
Salman - Hussa - Ahmed

Edit: According to wikipedia Hussa does indeed have a brother called Abdulaziz (again not an uncommon name - also shared by her own husband); but theoretically it is still possible that we are talking about the same Ahmed Al-Sudairi.

Both the Al Saif family as well as the Al Sudairi's are prominent in the Najd region where the Al Saifs are sheiks of the town of Al-Attar in Sudair, Najd and the Al Sudairi's are part of the noble Dawasir tribe settled in Al Ghat, Najd - about 100 km further down the road from Riyadh.

Well, Princess Fahdah Hashem's mother is also from the Al Sudairi family. Her name is Sharifa bint Turki Al Sudairi.

I read elsewhere that it is an arranged marriage.

I personally doubt this is an arranged marriage, considering Queen Rania is from a commoner background and CP Hussein's parents' marriage is a love marriage
