Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan is marking her 52nd in the best way possible, surrounded by her family and loved ones.

The Jordanian royal took to Instagram to post a birthday photo in celebration of her birthday, and it’s an extra special one.

In the photo appears her four children, Crown Prince Hussein, Princess Iman, Princess Salma and Princes Hashem, but there’s also two other very special individuals in the snap.

Making an appearance for the first time in a family photo is Crown Prince Hussein’s fiancee, Rajwa Al Saif, and Princess Iman’s fiance Jameel Alexander Thermiotis. It’s a very special moment as the Jordanian royal family expands, as Crown Prince Hussein and Princess Iman only recently announced their impending nuptials to their respective partners.

What’s more, Rajwa and Jameel were posing in the photograph right next to their future mother-in-law, a sign they’re being welcomed with open arms into the family.

“My heart is full!” Queen Rania said on Instagram. “Couldn’t ask for a better way to celebrate than with all my loved ones around me.”

While her husband, King Abdullah II, didn’t appear in the photograph, a new portrait of the royal pair was released earlier in the day to mark Queen Rania’s birthday.

The photograph was released on the official Instagram page of the Royal Hashemite Court where well-wishes were shared for the Jordanian royal.

“The Royal Hashemite Court extends its warmest wishes to Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah on the occasion of her birthday,” the caption of the post read.

Crown Prince Hussein’s engagement

Crown Prince Hussein’s engagement to Rajwa Al Saif was announced via a Twitter post by the Royal Hashemite Court on Wednesday, August 17, 2022. The post congratulated the couple and showcased a series of images of the family together to mark the special occasion, which took place at Rajwa’s father’s home in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The statement said, “The Royal Hashemite Court is pleased to announce the engagement of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II to Ms. Rajwa Khaled bin Musaed bin Saif bin Abdulaziz Al Saif, on Wednesday, 17 August 2022, in the presence of Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al Abdullah.”

Princess Iman’s engagement

It’s a joyous time for the Jordanian royal family as Crown Prince Hussein’s announcement came just weeks after his younger sister, Princess Iman, announced her engagement.

Queen Rania shared a photo of her eldest daughter with her fiance Jameel Alexander Thermiotis confirming their engagement.

She congratulated her “dearest Iman” and her husband-to-be.

“Congratulations my dearest Iman; your smile has always been a gift of love that I’ve cherished since the day you were born,” she said. “I wish you and Jameel a life filled with love and laughter!”

It certainly is a time for huge celebrations amongst the Jordanian royals.
