Ivanka Trump made a dazzling – but very under-the-radar – appearance at the royal wedding of the year on Thursday, where she was spotted enjoying a chat with one very prominent royal: Prince William.
The former first daughter, 41, and her husband Jared Kushner, 42, jetted into Jordan earlier this week in order to attend the wedding of Crown Prince Hussein and his new wife Rajwa – having spent the previous few days enjoying a trip to Greece.
Ivanka and Jared were among a host of high-profile guests at the event – including First Lady Jill Biden, whose husband, President Joe Biden, has come under furious criticism at the hands of Ivanka’s father, former President Donald Trump.
Unsurprisingly, the former First Daughter was not pictured spending any time with Jill, 71, however she was seen engaged in a quiet conversation with Prince William, 40, whom she met four years ago with the Trump family went on an official trip to the UK and met several members of the royal family.

One day after the wedding, Ivanka took to Instagram to offer her official congratulations to Jordan’s Crown Prince and his new wife, writing in a post shared on her Stories: ‘Congratulations to Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah and Princess Rajwa Al Hussein on their beautiful wedding in Jordan yesterday.
‘May their lives together be blessed with an abundance of love, health and happiness.’
She then shared a picture of the newlywed couple during the ceremony, before offering her followers a glimpse at her own stunning ensemble, sharing a snap of herself modeling a floor-length blue gown while posing with Jared, who looked dapper in a white-tie tuxedo.
Ivanka made no mention of her chat with William – or any of the other guests she may have seen during the event.
Their meeting comes four years after mother-of-three Ivanka first met the Prince and Princess of Wales – then the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – when she joined her father on a three-day trip to the UK, where they marked the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
William and Ivanka were not pictured together during the Trumps’ trip, however they did both attend a State Banquet at Buckingham Palace so it’s likely that they crossed paths at least once.
During that same visit, Ivanka was seen spending time with William’s younger brother Prince Harry, 38, who was seen chatting with the then-first daughter as she and her father enjoyed a tour of the Royal Collection at the palace.

Although Trump’s presidency has since come to an end, Ivanka has actually found even more time to explore her love of travel, with the mother-of-three and her husband jetting off on multiple vacations over the past few months alone.
Before they traveled to Jordan for the royal wedding, the couple spent several days on a romantic trip in Greece – where they took in many of the country’s historical sights.
Ivanka documented much of the trip on her Instagram account, where she gushed about how much her visit to the country had meant to her.
‘During the pandemic I reread “The Odyssey” and fell in love Homer’s epic poem once again (I loved Robert Fitzgerald’s translation),’ she wrote alongside several photos from the trip.
‘Walking in the footsteps of Odysseus these past few days has been an extraordinary experience – ancient ruins and mythical landscapes came alive before my eyes as I explored this breathtaking country.
‘Thank you, Greece, for bringing the Odyssey to life in the most enchanting way possible.
‘Here’s to new adventures and embracing the spirit of Odysseus within us all!’
