A Royal Decree was issued to bestow the title of Her Royal Highness Princess Rajwa Al Hussein on Miss Rajwa Khalid Alseif on the occasion of her marriage to His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein.
Earlier today, the wedding ceremony, known as a “katb ktab”, took place at Zahran Palace with around 140 guests, including foreign royals. King Abdullah II and Queen Rania were on hand to greet the guests as they arrived. The bride arrived on the arm of her groom’s younger brother Prince Hashem.
She reportedly wore an Elie Saab dress and a new tiara.
After the ceremony, the Crown Prince and the new Princess greeted all the guests.
The newlyweds will now travel to the Al Husseiniya Palace as part of the Red Motorcade, which was traditionally a procession of white horses with riders dressed in blue trousers and red blazers. The motorcade and the riders will wear full Jordanian military regalia.
At Al Husseiniya Palace, the celebrations will continue with a Zaffeh, a musical procession. Then, through an honorary Arch of Sabers, the newlyweds will proceed through the courtyard towards the greeting stage. Here, they will be joined by both sets of parents to greet over 1,700 guests. The evening will feature several performances and will be concluded with the cutting of the wedding cake.
After the main reception, a wedding banquet will be held.
