Does anyone have a idea about QR's weight and height? She looks thin, but good in her pictures. And you know the saying..."The camera adds 10lbs". So just wondering if anyone had an idea.

Ok..next question. Didn't see it mentioned anywhere. Does QR and KA speak to their children in English or Arabic? Probably both? I would think mainly English b/c many articles I have read said that KA doesn't speak fluent Arabic. Anyone know???

That is right .... i watched princess Iman on jordan tv last year ... her arabic is excellent

QueenRaniaFan 05-09-2008 06:36 PM

Wow! Interesting. So I'm sure that QR speaks to the children in Arabic and KA speaks to them in English so they will be fluent in both. And I'm guessing QR and KA speak to each other in English.

The king on jrtv.gov.jo now and he speaks his speech in arabic but im not to say if it is good or not. Maybe someones else saw it?

I saw him .... he is not fluent but better than 2007 ...:flowers:

Id never heard him before in arabic, but ive heard hamzah and ali, but i can not tell between good and bad lol, so i wonder if his younger brothers are better in fluent?

QueenRaniaFan 05-29-2008 10:43 PM

Only a little more than a week until QR and KA's 15th wedding anniversary! I wander if there will be any special celebration in the kingdom or pictures like on their 10th. 15th anniversary is a big deal!

About 5' 6" and although the magazines say she is tall, she isn't really, maybe in comparison with a lot of Jordanian women she is but average height as she always wears very high heels, 3 or 4 inches. If you see her standing next to King Abdullah who is a short man like his father was, you see she is almost the same height as him, although she is a little taller than him.

She is really, really thin but isn't naturally built that way and you can see it in her hips and bottom when you see her in person. She has dieted and exercised very hard to get to the weight she has now. Lately, she seems to have gained a little weight and looks better IMO.

I think this is true although Queen Noor had to learn Arabic as an adult and her arabic is better than Abdullah's.

Did King Abdullah speak mostly English while growing up?

yamamah 05-31-2008 07:38 PM

Yes he did but he had arabic tutors

Hallo dear Moderators of the royal jordanian forum. Let me thank you again for the wonderful reports and pictures of the royal family. Iam a big fan of Queen Rania. She does a great job for her country. And she gives a wonderful view to her country and culture. Meanwhile I am a huge fan of Jordan. It is a wonderful country and I am very interested in that old culture (Petra, etc.)And not to forget, I love to come to the forum and see the recent activities of their majesties. Thanks again

However you will soon see that the vast majority of information posted at our Board is by our members, not just Moderators. And so I join you in thinking all regulars of the Jordanian Forum, who make it an itneresting and enjoyable place to visit! :flowers:

Does anyone know where the family currently lives? I understood that they had an house in Amman, but have they moved into a palace at some point in time?

Velasco 11-30-2008 07:01 PM

I am wondering....if the King wanted to, could he take another wife? Or more wives? Ie, a harem...?

Little_star 12-01-2008 04:35 AM

A muslim man may only take another wife if he has the permission of his first wife. So, I find it highly unlikely that the King would do so.
