Jordan celebrates soon-to-be Crown Princess on her birthday

Jordan has celebrated their soon-to-be Crown Princess on her birthday.

Crown Prince Hussein congratulated his fiancee, Rajwa Al Saif, on his Instagram account, sharing an unseen photo of the Saudi 29-year-old with a horse.

Hussein said: “Wishing my dearest Rajwa a very happy birthday! Looking forward to a life of love, compassion and commitment with you.”

His mother, Queen Rania, also took to social media to praise her future daughter-in-law, “Happy birthday to our lovely Rajwa!”

Rajwa was born on 28 April 1994 in Saudi Arabia to businessman Khaled Al Saif and his wife, Azza Al Sudairi, who is reportedly related to the Saudi Royal Family.

She was educated in Saudi Arabia before moving to the United States to attend the Syracuse University School of Architecture; she has also worked in Los Angeles and earned a degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

Crown Prince Hussein’s engagement to Rajwa was announced in August 2022; they are set to wed on 1 June 2023, upon which time she will become the Crown Princess of Jordan.
