HM Queen Rania of Jordan recently paid a visit to the Tal Al Rumman Women’s Cooperative, which provides local women with skill-based employment opportunities. A long-time champion of women’s empowerment, especially within her country, the royal’s trip marked her show of support, as she stopped by various training sessions and areas of the organization to learn more about its economic and social programs.

The ensembles Queen Rania picks for royal engagements are always noteworthy, and spotlight her multifaceted, carefully curated wardrobe of luxury international designers, local and traditional craftsmanship, as well as high-street brands. This time, she opted for an affordable number from Zara, coincidentally in the same week as her fellow royal Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, who was spotted in a black turtleneck sweater from the Spanish retailer.
Not one to shy away from color, Queen Rania wore a wool shirt jacket in mauve, nearly channeling the Pantone Color of the Year, ‘Very Peri’. The structured jacket was worn buttoned up and lightly cinched at the waist with a belt. Offering her take on high-low dressing, the royal paired the Zara piece with black straight trousers from Alexander McQueen, and Nike sneakers. With minimally styled hair, Queen Rania’s wavy tresses were parted sideways and pinned behind her ears in a faux half-up-half-down way.
Videos and images shared on the royal’s Instagram account showed her taking a tour of the organization and interacting with the craftswomen. “Enjoying Tal Al Rumman’s beautiful nature and the company of its amazing people,” she captioned a photo of her holding a wooden piece presumably created by one of the women at Tal Al Rumman. Founded in 2017 and located in Balqa Governorate, it is the sole community-based organization in the village and offers women skill-specific training sessions in cooking, embroidery, sewing, baking, and dairy production.
