Great to see the two future colleagues together. Although the task that lies ahead of Hussein is more difficult than William's imo.

Crown Prince Hussein looked more charismatic than Prince William.

#PrinceWilliam clearly getting on great with Jordan's Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah II, both laughing and joking together. Hussein is a Sandhurst-trained second lieutenant in the Jordanian army and shares a passion for motorbikes with William! #Ducati #RoyalVisitJordan

Really? Interested how someone "looks" charismatic? How can you tell from a photo?

It is my personal impression.

A short but nice speech in which he highlighted the bonds between the families and also references Catherine's stay of 3 years in Jordan as a child. Such a pity that she wasn't able to join. Hopefully they'll have another opportunity (or can make a private visit and take their children with them when they are a little older).

And if someone don't know England won Panama 6-1

No offence to the Crown Prince but that interior's pretty awful.

The Crown Prince also posted the photo to his Instagram page

“Having a relaxing evening with His Royal Highness Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, after his first day in #OurJordan”

Man Cave!
The Crown Prince looks a lot like Steph Curry.

It's his parent's house/palace.

But that looks like a room a young man would decorate himself (unfortunately in this case).

William seems to have made a real connection with the Crown Prince, much more so than he did with the young Swedish/Norwegian/Danish royals when he met them. In my opinion, this is the kind of royal-to-royal relationship that actually has relevance given the role the Crown Prince will likely play in policy making in his country. Whether William is friends with Victoria of Sweden affects nothing and no one.

Completely different contexts. The Norwegian and the Danish younger royals are much older than William (with teenage kids), I would be surprised if there was a real connection. We don't know what kind of relationship there is with Victoria and Daniel, what went on during the Duke private meeting at the Haga Palace apart from the official pictures we got.
Here we have a picture with two men watching a football match, of course they are enjoying themselves, they're men...but it's hard to guess the terms of a relationship from it as well.
I am the happiest person if William manages to create bonds with every single foreign royal, something the BRF never really thought to be important, but that said, William's position will never be political and Jordan has always been friendly with Western countries so a bond within the two will hardly affect anything or anyone IMO.

One thing that struck me as something both men have in common and reminisce about is that they're both Sandhurst alumni. That and perhaps a common interest in sports. I'm happy to see that these two men had a chance to just sit back, relax and get to know each other on a purely personal level.
