Royals and dignitaries from around the world have convened in Amman, Jordan for the royal wedding of Crown Prince Hussein to Rajwa Khaled bin Musaed bin Saif bin Abdulaziz Al Saif. Kensington Palace confirmed that Prince William and Kate are among them, as the royal couple represent Britain at the ceremony.
For the occasion, Kate wore a blush-pink Elie Saab gown with intricate pleated details, a high neck, and billowing bishop sleeves. She accessorised with a clutch and drop earrings. Meanwhile, William wore his signature navy blue suit with a light blue tie.
The event is being attended by many of the royals who were present for King Charles’s coronation in Westminster Abbey last month, with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, and Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary among those confirmed to attend. First Lady Jill Biden is representing the U.S. at the ceremony.
The trip to Jordan has a particularly personal meaning for the Princess of Wales, as she lived there from May 1984 to September 1986 as a result of her father Michael Middleton’s work. “In May 1984, at the age of two, The Princess moved with her family to Amman in Jordan, where her father worked for two and a half years,” the royal family’s website notes. “Her Royal Highness attended a nursery school in Amman from the age of three.”
William and Kate also took their three children on holiday to Jordan in 2021, sharing this news when they released their Christmas card that same year showing the family on their vacation. In 2018, Prince William took a solo official trip to the Middle East, where he stopped in Jordan, Israel, and the occupied Palestinian territories. During that trip, he met with Crown Prince Hussein and the two watched a football match together at the Beit Al Urdun Palace. Kensington Palace tweeted a photograph of them sitting side by side watching England beat Panama in the World Cup.
