Jordan’s royal court last week announced the engagement of Jordanian Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah II, 28, to Rajwa Al Saif, 26, from Saudi Arabia.
“The Royal Hashemite Court extends its sincere congratulations to Their Majesties on this occasion, and wishes His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II and Ms Rajwa a lifetime of happiness,” read an official statement from the Royal Hashemite Court.
Al Saif is a Saudi national, daughter of businessman Khaled Al Saif and the youngest of four siblings. According to Roya News in Jordan, Abdullah’s fiancé completed her secondary education in Saudi Arabia, before moving to New York to study at the Syracuse University College of Architecture.
The engagement took place at the Riyadh home of Rajwa’s father, in the presence of Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Queen Rania Al-Abdullah and members of the Al Saif family.
Queen Rania welcomed her son’s fiancé to the family on social media, saying: “Excited to welcome my third daughter, Al Hussein’s bride-to-be, Rajwa, to the family! We’re so happy for you both.”
In a separate post, the queen shared a picture of the couple and added: “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.”
