Queen Rania Marks Jordan’s Independence Day With the Royal Family

It has been a momentous week for the Royal Family of Jordan, who just days ago marked Princess Salma’s graduation from high school.

And the family continued the celebratory mood into the weekend, as they honored the nation’s Independence Day on May 25.

Their Majesties Queen Rania and King Abdullah II took part in an official ceremony in Amman’s Al Husseiniya Palace, along with two of their four children, Crown Prince Hussein and Princess Salma.

“Wishing a happy 72nd Independence Day to our beloved country and its people,” HM Queen Rania wrote to her 4.5 million Instagram followers on the day, alongside a snapshot of her and the King.

Crown Prince Hussein, who is back in Jordan after graduating from Britain’s prestigious Sandhurst Military Academy last year, also shared a touching tribute on the day, as he posed with his mother.

For the occasion, Queen Rania donned a deep berry and navy silk Seraphima kaftan by The Modist‘s own label, Layeur.

The mid-length number by the luxury modest fashion site features an elegant, textured high neck and cuffs, with artful draping.

Her Majesty paired the flowing gown with a sapphire ring by the 2016 DDFC/Vogue Fashion Prize honorary fine jewelry design winner, Ralph Masri.

HRH Princess Haya bint Al Hussein, who is the sister of King Abdullah II, also marked the day on social media, sharing a short video on Instagram.

“Celebrating Jordan’s 72nd Independence Day,” said the royal, who is married to HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
