Of course he had to demonstrate his allegiance. Nothing is normal in that kleptocratic system of Abdullah where nepotism rules. And when then there is opposition it is "a coup". Let me laugh. Pffff. Abdullah better changes so that Jordan indeed works for all Jordanians otherwise there will be a second "Arab Spring" his inert regime will not survive.

And I don't think the odds of anything good replacing the current regime are large. Or anything more than miniscule.

If Abdullah were smarter/less afraid, I think he'd make Hamza a minister and at least try for some changes (bonus, if Hamza fails, it's solely on him). Stifling everyone and everything is not the best plan, for him or the Jordanians.

Aides to the former Jordanian heir Prince Hamzah sought pledges of allegiance on his behalf from tribal leaders and former military officers in the weeks before he was detained, conversations caught on phone intercepts and listening devices suggest.

Phone intercepts shine more light on Jordanian prince’s alleged coup attempt

Interesting to read a bit more background; it sounds rather serious. Also interesting: it was the USA that found out about it and warned the Jordanians. And it is somehow tight to USA politics regarding the Kushner plan that king Abdullah opposed as he would loose control.
