Queen Alia of Jordan

There is a new site about King Hussein of Jordan’s third wife, Queen Alia. Well, it’s new to me, anyway. I did a search for her about a year ago, and came up empty handed. Now, thanks to The Royal Forums, we all have more information about this lovely woman.

King Hussein and Queen Alia (Toukan) had two children: Prince Ali and Princess Haya, along with an adopted girl named Abir.

Charles and Camilla Visit The Middle East

HRH The Prince of Wales has long been a fan of Middle Eastern culture, and he has been on friendly terms with rulers in the region for decades.

Charles and Camilla Visit The Middle East – For this royal tour, Charles and his wife Camilla stopped to visit King Abdullah and Queen Rania in Jordan for three days; Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and Oman. The purpose of the tour in the region is to promote business and economics, the role of women in society, and inter-faith dialogue.

In Jordan, the Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall sat down to a formal dinner with King Abdullah and Queen Rania.

During the visit, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall parted ways briefly, as Charles visited the King Hussein Mosque and Camilla took part in a storytelling session for deaf children at a local children’s museum.

See the photos of their trip!

Prince Charles stopped in to Rubicon’s head office in Amman. It was here at the award-winning animation studio headquarters where he met Postman Pat, as well as designers and artists.

The royals also met with Syrian refugees in the King Abdullah Refugee Camp on Jordan’s Syrian border. The Prince was especially devastated by the plight of the refugee children, but applauded Jordan’s helping hand.

“I think the great thing that’s come out of this is just how unbelievably generous the Jordanian people are, who are truly remarkable I think,” said Charles.

Part 2 tomorrow!
