Crown Prince Hussein’s father, King Abdullah II of Jordan, represented Her Majesty The Queen at the Sandhurst Sovereign’s Parade as the Reviewing Officer. The King had the honour of addressing the cadets after the parade reminiscing on his time as a cadet at the Sandhurst a few decades before and the challenges they face in the future. He concluded by emphasising that the cadets must always “do what’s right.”

His father, Grand Duke Henri; mother, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, brothers, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, Prince Félix and Prince Louis; sister, Princess Alexandra; and sisters-in-law, Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie and Princess Claire were all in attendance at the ceremony.

Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa visited their son at Sandhurst back in March; the Court released some images from their visit then, as well.

Sébastien followed a family tradition by attending the military school; his father; grandfather, Grand Duke Jean; brothers, the Hereditary Grand Duke and Prince Félix (who did not graduate); and uncle, Prince Jean, among others, were students at Sandhurst. Other well-known royals have also attended the military academy including Prince William and Prince Harry.
