The royal couple have been married 25 years.
Here’s one to celebrate. Just a day after Jordan’s King Abdullah II marked the anniversary of his 1999 ascension to the throne, he’s got another major milestone.
June 10 is the royal’s 25th wedding anniversary with Queen Rania — that’s a full quarter-century of making us believe in love.
Queen Rania, who regular readers will know we love for both her style choices and her work on education in Jordan, posted a gorgeous portrait of her and her husband.
“So thankful for every day spent by your side. Happy anniversary,” she captioned the shot.
The royals had a whirlwind romance back in 1993. They met at a dinner party in January, were engaged within two months, and married by June, The Times reported last year.
“He had such a great smile and such infectious energy, we got on really well. And the rest, as they say, is history!” Queen Rania said.
Six years later, King Hussein died, and his son, King Abdullah II, took the throne. Queen Rania was 28.
“I was awed, scared, humbled and hopeful. All I knew for sure at that moment was that life would never be quite the same. There isn’t exactly a manual to doing the queen thing right,” she said in an interview in 2016.
“But with time, and with His Majesty’s support, I tried to do my best for my country and its people. Slipping into that role was an extraordinary privilege.”
The pair have four children — Crown Prince Hussein, Princess Iman, Princess Salma, and Prince Hashem.
