It might be named the White House, but HM Queen Rania and First Lady Melania Trump brought the softest of pinks to the presidential base yesterday. The Jordanian royal accompanied King Abdullah II on an official visit to the Washington DC residence on June 25, where the couple met with US President Donald Trump and his wife. For the occasion, Her Majesty chose fluid, wide-leg trousers from Adeam, which she teamed with a collarless, pleated blouse from the same label.
Both free-flowing and tailored, the combination was crafted in a muted rose hue, and Queen Rania added a matching top-handle bag in a marginally punchier palette. The tonal ensemble is not the first time the royal has turned to Japan-born designer Hanako Maeda, after sporting an Adeam midi in pale pink to a luncheon last month. First Lady Melania Trump twinned in a blush Proenza Schouler dress, which featured artful pleating, folded skirt, and belted waist.
The First Lady hosted Queen Rania for afternoon tea in the White House’s green room during the visit, her communications director Stephanie Grisham revealed, as President Trump and King Abdullah held an hour-long bilateral meeting. The Jordanian royals previously last visited the White House in April 2017. During their current US stay, Their Majesties also attended a dinner hosted by Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence.
While Queen Rania and King Abdullah were in the States, their son, Crown Prince Hussein, received his own royal visitor – Prince William. The 23-year-old heir apparent welcomed the Duke of Cambridge to Amman on Sunday, and the pair have since enjoyed a World Cup match together, visited the Roman ruins of Jerash, and toured the TechWorks Fabrication Lab.
