As The King and Queen of Norway will host a ”return event” there will definitely be a reception hosted by the King and Queen of Jordan before that.

It's a weird combination all around. The queens in long dresses, the kings in business suits and the crown prince in traditional dress.

I believe under King Abdullah Jordan doesn't do State Banquets in white tie, with grand jewels. What we saw is "standard", let us say.

I like the emerald suite of Queen Sonja. I read somewhere it was a gift from a royal in the Middle East. It was first used in 2002.

It disturbs me a bit that the Crown Prince dresses alike an Arab Sheikh. Jordan is the Middle East, not a country on the Arabic peninsula. Jordan has, alike Turkey, Lebanon and Israel, always tried to be a Western oriented country. I hope the Crown Prince does not model himself to his Saudi colleague. I really does not understand this Arab appearance. Is the Crown Prince sending a message?

What Crown Prince Hussein is wearing is a typical Jordanian national costume that it's not uncommon to see Jordanian men wear on special occasions. I like that he decided to wear it to show of the heritage of his country.

The traditional Jordan clothing usually has a white thobe (King Abdullah usually wears a suit) and a red keffiyeh as striking feature (which King Abdullah also wears in combination with a suit).

That keffiyeh is so widely known, it has become a sort of Jordan icon:


The Crown Prince however was optically dressed in Saudi style, for a Norwegian visit.
Usually we see him dressed like this:

Hussein

The two brothers

The King inspects his guard

The King welcomes the Emir of Qatar

The Crown Prince yesterday

I thought it was a remarkable choice of someone who uses to dress Western, to not even use the traditional Jordanian keffiyeh but go straight for an attire fit for a Saudi royal palace.

from Wikipedia:

A bisht or mishlaḥ is a traditional men’s cloak popular in the Arab world... It is a status garment, associated with royalty, religious position, wealth, and ceremonial occasions. A bisht is usually worn for prestige on special occasions...

Jordan, officially the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is an Arab country in Western Asia, on the East Bank of the Jordan River.

Is the Crown Prince more of a traditionalist than his father ? Is he also a more devout Muslim ?

That is what confused me when I saw his very traditional attire because so far he has a quite Western profile, like his parents. That he took this for the Norwegians is pretty surprising.

Have you puctures of these actually used in an event? To me it looks like posed portrait pictures for use on billboards along highways.

The Crown Prince might be emulating his Uncle, Prince Hashim, a bit. Hashim has worn the black flowing robes and head dress for many years now.
