The Jordanian royals are celebrating the second engagement in the family this year.

Crown Prince Hussein announced the joyous news of his engagement to Rajwa Al Saif on Wednesday, just five weeks after his sister, Princess Iman became engaged to New York financier Jameel Alexander Thermiotis.

While congratulations are undoubtedly flowing in for the newly engaged couple, little is actually known about Crown Prince Hussein’s bride-to-be.

With that, Emirates Woman explores what we know, so far, about the future wife of the Jordanian Crown Prince.

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.”

Queen Rania also shared a personal congratulations to her son and his bride-to-be following the announcement.

“I didn’t think it was possible to hold so much joy in my heart! Congratulations to my eldest Prince Hussein and his beautiful bride-to-be, Rajwa,” she said on Instagram, also sharing photos from the engagement.
