Crown Prince of Jordan, Hussein bin Abdullah married  Rajwa Al Saif in June 2023. The Royal Couple of Jordan will soon welcome their first child.

The Royal couple got engaged in August 2022 at Princess Rajwa’s paternal home in Saudi.

With that, Emirates Woman explores what we know about the newest Princess of Jordan so far:

Who is Rajwa Al Saif?

According to Jordanian news outlet Roya News, Rajwa Al Saif was born in Riyadh on April 28, 1994 and is currently 28 years old.

The bride-to-be is the youngest of four children, including Faisal, Naif, Dana and Rajwa, born to parents Khalid bin Musaed Al Saif and Azza Al Sudairi.

The Al Saif family’s heritage dates back to the Subai tribe in the town of  Al-Attar in Sudair, Najd, Saudi Arabia, where ancestors are known to have been the sheikhs of the town.

Rajwa’s father, who resides in Riyadh, has established himself as a well-reputed businessman over the years.

Life & career

Rajwa was born and raised in Saudi Arabia where she completed her secondary education.

She then moved to New York to attend university at the College of Architecture at Syracuse University. However, little is known about her career after graduating from the university.

The engagement

The announcement was made 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.

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.”

The Wedding

The official islamic wedding ceremony took place at the Zahran Palace in Amman, Jordan a few moments ago. The same iconic location where King Abdullah of Jordan married Queen Rania.

The couple looked resplendent as they vowed to spend their lives together. For the nuptials, the Crown Prince chose to wore his military uniform, just like his father did on his big day, thirty years ago.

The bride, who originates from Saudi Arabia looked ethereal in a stunning white gown by Elie Saab with and endless veil. The ensemble she chose for her big day had elements of traditionalism with a hint of modernity. The jewellery and makeup were minimal, as the glowing bride allowed her au naturale beauty to take centre stage.
