On May 25, Their Majesties Queen Rania and King Abdullah II celebrated the 76th Independence Day of Jordan with a special ceremony. Held at the Al Husseiniya Palace, it saw distinguished Jordanians honored with medals by King Abdullah in appreciation of their services to the country and its people.
For the occasion, Queen Rania maintained her streak of contemporary-meets-traditional style in an elegant white jalabiya. Embroidered with contrasting pink, red, and purple threads at the neckline, the piece also came with flowy lilac panels on each side of the dress. The royal echoed these details by matching them with a lilac triangular clutch from Lyn, founded by Jordanian designer Leen Abu Summaqa, and pointed-toe heels in a similar hue. She also elevated her signature hairstyle for the big day by wearing it with added volume, and swooped back and away from her face to show off a pair of purple earrings. Another piece of matching jewelry worn by the royal was a two-toned pink Modernist bracelet by Lebanese designer Ralph Masri.
The ceremony was also attended by Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Al Hussein, Prince Hashem, Princess Iman, and members of the royal family, senior officials, officers, and members of the diplomatic corps. They took the opportunity to highlight the vision of Jordan’s future with the younger generation at its center and the country’s modernization drive.
