Rania champions women's crafts in Paris

23 NOVEMBER 2004

Jordan's ever-elegant Queen Rania joined French first lady Bernadette Chirac in Paris for the inauguration of a display of interior design products created by Jordanian women.

Looking Parisian chic in a grey coat and black trousers topped off by a fur foulard, the queen toured the exhibit, which was organised by a women's rights foundation she chairs.

Accompanied by Mme Chirac and the former empress of Iran, Farah Diba, Rania viewed a selection of handicrafts designed for interior decoration and made by Jordanian women in an effort to earn income and improve their families' livelihoods. The pieces are simple yet contemporary and are inspired by traditional Jordanian and Islamic motifs.

Rania is currently accompanying her husband King Abdullah II on a working tour of European countries this week, which will include Britain, Luxembourg and Belgium.

Looks like Abdullah and Rania have a busy week ahead.
Rania looks beautiful though. It's hard to tell she's even pregnant, especially in the gala dress.

I like her coats at both the Paris store and at the Beyond Realism art exhibition. But the coats don't really seem to go with what she is wearing underneath. It's like she just slapped the coats over whatever she was wearing that day. And I really don't like the fur collar thing at the Paris store: the coat has plenty of details (lace trim, big collar) without needing a fur collar thrown on top; not to mention I don't think the fur collar thrown over outfits accessory ever looked all that good.

I really like the green ballgown she wore. Though she should have figured out how to cover her shoulders before wearing it in public because the lace shawl slips and she seems to be fussing with it in a few pictures. Maybe fix the lace shawl in place.

I don't remember for sure but didn't she seem to be more elegantly dressed, esp her day outfits, when she was pregnant with Salma?

KA in Luxembourg
After the welcoming ceremony His Majesty King Abdullahand Duke Henry held a bilateral meeting followed by a round of talks between His Majesty the King and Prime Minister of Luxembourg Jean Claude Juncker and his Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn. The talks covered bilateral relations, latest development in the Middle East region and the EU role in the region.
The King stressed the necessity to enhance trade ties with Luxembourg, increase Jordanian exports to the EU markets and to benefit from the free trade agreement between Jordan and the EU.
King Abdullah also expressed appreciation to the EU continued support to Jordan that helps implement economic and social development projects in the Kingdom. The King referred in particular to the year's grant by the EU which would contribute to supporting local development projects.
Within this context, an agreement on an EU additional grant to Jordan would be signed during King Abdullah's visit to Brussels on Thursday. The grant will be used to fight poverty in the course of social development programs.
The situation in the Middle East, particularly in Palestine and Iraq figured high in the King's talks, which were attended by the delegation accompanying King Abdullah on the visit. The two sides affirmed that there is a big opportunity at present for the new Palestinian leadership to rearrange its priorities with regard to the peace process in the region.
The King called upon the Palestinian and Israeli sides to commit themselves to an honest and accurate implementation of the Road Map, which would eventually lead to establishing an independent, sovereign and democratic Palestinian state living in peace alongside the Israeli state.
