This article is saying (sorry it's in German) that King Abdullah and Queen Rania will pay an official three-day visit to Vienna next week (it's even called a state visit there). They will stay at Hotel Imperial and will meet Austria's president Fischer Wednesday at his official residence (the Hofburg).

Politik-Glamour für Wien angesagt -
Interesting that they are going to Austria, they paid a visit there quite early on in the King's reign.

Thanks for the info Veram!
yes they made an official visit to Austria in January 2001.
Thank´s Veram!

It´s official or state visit?
I have to keep my eyes open (and my camera in place). I would love to see Queen Rania in person. I wonder if they have planned an appearance for the public folk as well. You can hardly find information on the visit. ;( Not even the official site of the president Fischer has posted anything.

This is the hotel, King Abdullah II and Queen Rania will be staying at.

I'm looking forward to the pics from Austria would be nice,so they will meet the couple Sarkozy sound intersting:Carla and Rania:cool:
the hotel looks gorgeous! i'm quite impressed the press knows such details on where they are staying.

i'm also looking forward to some glamourous rania and carla shots! i bet they will get on well: they seem to have similar interests, come from similar backgrounds and they are around the same age.
I'm not sure if there will be a meeting, it's not mentioned anywhere.

We haven't seen a several-country tour like this from the couple in years. I hope this will be an interesting one.

Thanks for the photos! She looks great.
She looks nice. I don´t like her shoes (she wore this shoes in Milan last year) and I think her rings are new.
The watch she is wearing in the pictures is a white gold Cartier Tank Francaise. I wonder if it was a gift from President et Madame Sarkozy?

No this watch is old, Queen Rania wore it many times in these years.

I wish there had been some pictures of the gala dinner would have been interesting to see the ladies dresses and the mens heights even with their shoe lifts - he he!
Queen looks pretty,as always she's really stylish!!!!:flowers:
Her Majesty Queen Rania looks fabulous in the dark navy outfit. I am not sure about her shoes and stocking though ... The bright blue coat is a truly perfect choice. Bright colours tend to favourably enhance Queen Rania's complexion.
I am looking forward to seeing gala outfits.
