Queen Rania leaves emotional note for daughter as Jordan announces wedding date of Princess Iman
Jordan's Royal Hashemite Court announced on Sunday the date of the royal wedding of Princess Iman bint Abdullah II.
The wedding will be held in a week’s time according to a statement by the court.
The RHC said: “The Royal Hashemite Court is pleased to announce that the wedding of Her Royal Highness Princess Iman bint Abdullah II and Mr. Jameel Alexander Thermiotis will take place on 12 March 2023.”
“The Royal Hashemite Court extends its sincere congratulations to Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al Abdullah on this occasion and wishes Her Royal Highness Princess Iman and Mr. Thermiotis a lifetime of happiness,” the statement added.
Like any mother, Queen Rania showered blessings on her "baby girl". She took to social media to share the news and posted an emotional video chronicling Iman's life - from a newborn to a beautiful young woman.
The video starts with Hussein bin Talal, the then-Jordan King and Iman's grandfather, lovingly stroking Queen Rania's head and blessing her as she held newborn Iman. The clip shows the toddler running around the royal grounds and then growing up as a young girl with a striking resemblance to her mother.
The Queen wrote, "The first time I held my baby girl, I knew my life would never be the same. In a week, she will be a bride. My precious Iman, I am so happy for you and so proud of everything that you are."
The engagement of Princess Iman, the eldest daughter of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, to Jameel Alexander Thermiotis was announced in July 2022.
It was followed by the announcement of the engagement of her brother the Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II to Saudi national Rajwa Khaled bin Musaed bin Saif bin Abdulaziz al-Saif in August 2022.
