King Abdullah II and Queen Rania have paid their respects to the late King Hussein of Jordan on the anniversary of his passing.

Her Majesty Queen Rania shared a black and white photo of herself and King Abdullah paying tribute to the late Jordanian monarch where he was laid to rest.

“With His Majesty King Abdullah II at the King Hussein Mausoleum, while paying our respects to the late King Hussein on the anniversary of his passing,” Queen Rania captioned the photo. “May his precious soul rest in peace.”

A photo from the archives of His Majesty King Abdullah and the late Jordanian king was also shared on the Royal Hashemite Court’s Instagram of the father-son duo adorned in their military outfits.

Further paying tribute to the late monarch, King Abdullah and Queen Rania visted the Al Hussein Social Foundation for Oprahns, which was founded in 1953 by King Hussien.

“This place holds a special place in His Majesty King Abdullah’s heart, so too do Jordan’s orphans,” Queen Rania said.

Upon his death in 1999, King Abdullah ascended to the throne, making his then 27-year-old wife the princess consort. March 22, 1999, King Abdullah proclaimed her queen making her Queen Rania of Jordan.
