Instantly after the Royal Hashemite Court announced the wedding date of Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, the eldest son of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, and his fiancé Rajwa Al Saif, everyone was eagerly waiting for the big day. 


The news of the upcoming royal wedding spread like wildfire and people from all walks of life were excited to witness the grand event! After all, a royal wedding is always a spectacle, and yesterday’s Jordanian celebration was absolutely no exception! 

The Kingdom of Jordan celebrated the royal wedding of Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, the eldest son of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, and Rajwa Al Saif in the mid-century Zahran Palace. It was attended by close family members and friends, as well as prominent political figures and dignitaries from around the world.

The crown prince made an entrance in a full ceremonial military uniform with a gold-hilted saber. The look was inspired by the same suit his father wore when he married the queen in 1993. 

The bride made a grand entrance to the Zahran Palace in a stunning 1968 Rolls-Royce Phantom V, which was custom-made for the crown prince's late great-grandmother. The vintage car added a touch of timeless elegance to the occasion.

In a beautiful gesture of unity and family, Crown Prince Hussein's younger brother, Prince Hashem bin Abdullah, accompanied his sister-in-law for her arrival. The prince's younger sisters, Princess Iman and Princess Salma, also followed behind and sorted her veil, further highlighting the importance of family and tradition on this special day.

The bride looked like a real-life princess with a long-sleeved creation by the renowned Lebanese designer Elie Saab. The gown featured a delicately draped bodice and an asymmetrical neckline, finished with a long, embellished train that added a touch of elegance to her ensemble.

Princess Rajwa Al Hussein leaned into simplicity while keeping her accessories minimal: A Cathedral Veil, chandelier earrings, and a diamond tiara. However, the pièce de résistance was undoubtedly the diamond tiara that the bride wore. The tiara was a true work of art, with an Arabic inscription that read "Rajwatum min Allah," which translates to "Hope from God."

After the ceremony, the newlyweds later emerged from the palace in a white custom Range Rover escorted by several bright red Land Rovers, motorcycles and a military marching band , waving to well-wishers and receiving congratulations from the crowds. The air was filled with excitement and joy as people eagerly awaited the arrival of the royal couple. 

The celebrations continued with a reception at the Al Husseiniya Palace, where the arrival of the bride and groom was announced with a zaffeh by the Jordan Armed Forces Musical Band. After passing through an honorary Arch of Sabers, the couple proceeded through the courtyard amidst a traditional Jordanian zaffeh, toward the greeting stage, where the family greeted more than 1,700 guests. 


The remainder of the evening featured a variety of performances by local and regional singers, a choir group, Jordanian bands, the national orchestra, and folk dance troupes.


The wedding celebrations continued with a grand state banquet, and lots of royal tiaras! The bride stepped out in a second look, a white custom Dolce & Gabbana cap-sleeve ballgown with a sweetheart neckline, layered and embroidered floral-like patterns across the entire design, and swirling embellishments.  While Princess Rajwa kept on her delicate diamond tiara and matching earrings from earlier in the day, she swept her hair into a chignon and added dramatic white opera gloves for the second look.
