HM Queen Rania of Jordan marked the beginning of Ramadan by visiting a group of women for iftar in the Karak Governorate in recognition of their contributions to society. On April 5, the royal was welcomed at the historic Karak Castle by the women actively working in the fields of education, social welfare, culture, volunteering, and making charitable efforts. Naturally, the Queen, who is known for her impeccable sense of style, was dressed in a modest regal ensemble for the occasion.
Leaning away from kaftans and abayas—the go-to demure clothing for the Holy Month—the royal opted for a three-piece look that was as powerful as it was sophisticated. Queen Rania’s creamy white pussybow blouse with balloon sleeves was worn under a sleeveless black straight-cut maxi dress, cinched at the waist with a wide belt. Adding a touch of tradition to a mostly modern look, the dress was topped off with a sleeveless jacket lined with gold thread work. The royal accessorized her outfit with a minimalistic black purse, a pair of black pointed-toe heels, and mother of pearl earrings which complemented her twisted updo.
“I am very happy to be here during the first week of Ramadan, surrounded by my sisters, the devoted women of Al Karak,” said Queen Rania at the iftar. “Ramadan is always a month of goodwill, blessings, and reconnecting with loved ones, but this year it feels even more special than usual — perhaps because we have been unable to get together for iftar like this for the past two years,” she added.
