Kate Middleton has become the unwitting protagonist of the wedding between Hussein of Jordan and Rajwa al Saif.
Although Buckingham Palace had not issued an official confirmation about the attendance of the Prince and Princess of Wales, the couple took a Royal Air Force (RAF) flight to Amman.
Doubts about whether the Prince and Princess of Wales would attend the royal wedding in Jordan were dispelled on Thursday, June 1, when images of William and Kate arriving at the ceremony began to circulate.
The presence of Kate Middleton at this wedding has generated great expectation because it is the first time she attends a major royal event in international lands.
Until now, the Prince and Princess of Wales had not participated in weddings and other royal events. However, now that they have become heirs after Charles III’s ascension to the throne, it is up to them to play a more active role on the international stage.

For her grand debut on this international stage, Kate has chosen to captivate in a romantic powder pink design. The design, by Elie Saab, belongs to the Fall/Winter 2017 collection.
Although the design has its years, this is the first time we see the Princess of Wales wearing it.
The dress features a richly embroidered top, with an elegant stand-up collar topped with lace and pleated sleeves that end in a lantern-inspired style.

United Kingdom and Jordan
It’s important to remember Kate and William’s ties to Jordan. During her childhood, Kate Middleton lived in this Hashemite country due to her father’s work.
Recently, in 2021, she returned to her former home with Prince William and their three children, George, Charlotte, and Louis. Although the trip was private, they shared a Christmas image with their followers on social media.
In addition, Rania, the wife of King Abdullah II of Jordan, is part of Earthshot, the foundation created by William to fight climate change.
With this friendly relationship and shared commitments, the British couple’s presence at the royal wedding in Jordan makes perfect sense.
The wedding between Hussein of Jordan and Rajwa al Saif is undoubtedly a royal highlight. Kate and William have gracefully and elegantly assumed their roles as future kings.
