HM Queen Rania of Jordan is bringing her royal duties in Ramadan to a close with yet another meaningful iftar. The gathering followed the royal’s return to the country shortly after the successful surgery of His Majesty King Abdullah II.
Held at the Jordan University for Science and Technology, the iftar saw Queen Rania host a group of women from the governorate of Irbid to commend their contributions to local society. For the occasion, the royal chose to wear a multicolored dress with traditional Jordanian embroidery. The vibrant piece came with threads of blue, red, yellow, and purple adorning the black fabric all over, as well as a bright blue panel on each side of the dress. While the neckline featured small tassels, the waist of the dress was cinched with a broad blue belt with metallic detailing. Queen Rania matched the colors in her dress with triangular diamond earrings with a red stone, a yellow clutch, and blue stilettos.

Clips of her meeting posted to the royal’s social media show Queen Rania being warmly welcomed by the attendees in Irbid. Before breaking the fast, the royal shared her appreciation for the company of the people of Irbid, as well as its natural scenery. “I am happy to be with you today. Thank you for your warm welcome,” she said. “Irbid is known for its beauty in the spring. I love coming here.”
Speaking to the women actively working in the fields of education, media, culture, social welfare, and volunteer work, Queen Rania applauded their contributions, and said, “Your hard work is a reflection of your excellence and altruism.” In turn, the royal was thanked by the Governor of Irbid, Radwan Outoum, who remarked that this occasion reflects the deep bond between Jordan’s leadership and its people and that Queen Rania’s pride in Irbid’s women motivated them to do more for their country.
