The Jordanian royal jetted in for a short—but super stylish—official visit.
It might have been brief, but HM Queen Rania al Abdullah certainly made the most of her trip to the UAE.
The Jordanian royal and King Abdullah II of Jordan flew into the capital on Wednesday, on an official state visit to the Emirates.
While the royal’s arrival outfit made headlines (she wore local label Bambah), the duo’s meeting with HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, wasn’t all that was on the itinerary.
On the last day of the flying 48-hour visit, the royals attended a conference in the capital, where they mingled with young Emiratis.
Her Majesty looked boardroom-ready in a sleek midi with a structured collar, courtesy of Beirut-born designer Pascale Habis’ label Diamondogs.
With its silk cuffs and fluid fabric, the Dhs2,500 Tilda dress is imbued with elegance—though Queen Rania added a modern edge with contrasting heels, an Apple watch and Louis Vuitton bag.
The royal and King Abdullah II later embarked on a tour of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the iconic art museum which opened on Saadiyat Island in November.
Queen Rania changed into a chic cornflower blue blouse, which she teamed with checked high-waisted trousers from UAE-born-and-bred designer Reema Al Banna.
The creative, who founded her label Reemami in 2012, later revealed the piece came from her SS18 collection.
“Dreams do come true!” Al Banna wrote on Instagram alongside an image of HM. “The name that keeps coming up to my mind every time they ask me who would you love to dress!”
The royals visited many pieces in the gallery, which is the only other Louvre outside of Paris.

One of the pieces King Abdullah II and Queen Rania viewed was an ancient statue from Jordan’s Ain Ghazal, the Royal Hashemite Court revealed.
Following their tour, the two jetted off, with King Abdullah later landing in Islamabad to meet the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
So, when will Queen Rania next be back? We don’t know—but in the meantime, we’re snapping up everything she wore while she was here…
