Jordan reveals date for Crown Prince’s wedding

Jordan’s Royal Hashemite Court has revealed the date for Crown Prince Hussein’s wedding to Rajwa Khalid Alseif.

The pair will wed in a Muslim ceremony on 1 June 2023.

The location was not revealed.

In the announcement, the Royal Hashemite Court said: “The Royal Hashemite Court extends its sincere congratulations to Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al Abdullah on this occasion and wishes His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II and Miss Rajwa Khalid Alseif a lifetime of happiness.”

Further information will be announced in due course.

Crown Prince Hussein and Rajwa became engaged on 17 August in the bride’s home country of Saudi Arabia.

Rajwa Khaled bin Musaed bin Saif bin Abdulaziz Al Saif was born in Riyadh on 28 April 1994 to Khalid bin Musaed Al-Saif, a Saudi businessman, and Azza bint Naif Al-Sudairi. Upon her marriage, she will become the Crown Princess of Jordan.

Crown Prince Hussein’s engagement came just weeks after his younger sister, Princess Iman, announced her engagement to Venezuelan-born Jameel Alexander Thermiotis. No date has been set for their nuptials.
