Queen Rania of Jordan has shared a new photo of her family to mark 2020 coming to an end. The family photograph shows King Abdullah II and Queen Rania with their four children: Crown Prince Hussein (26), Princess Iman (24), Princess Salma (20) and Prince Hashem (15).
The Jordanian Royal Family releases a new family portrait each December to celebrate the New Year, and as such, the family portrait follows a yearly tradition.
The Queen posted the image on her Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts saying in both Arabic and English: “This year, even as we have kept our distance, we’ve all held our loved ones a little closer in our hearts. Sending prayers for health and happiness to all.”
On Instagram alone, the post has over 300,000 likes and numerous comments. Queen Rania is one of the most active royals on social media, having accounts on most platforms to share her charity work and to promote Jordan.
She has not been able to undertake as many events recently due to the pandemic, but the Queen did join her husband on Monday at a digital meeting with distinguished Jordanians with disabilities. She said that their stories and accomplishments “give us immense pride!”
