If her wedding dress choice is anything to go by, it’s clear Crown Prince Hussein’s bride Rajwa Al Saif already has a close relationship with her mother-in-law Queen Rania of Jordan.
Royal fans have noted that the 29-year-old’s stunning ivory gown from Lebanese designer Elie Saab closely resembles the vintage golden dress worn by Rania in 2001 during a visit to London.
Created by the same fashion house as Rajwa’s wedding dress, the Jordanian Queen’s shimmering ensemble featured sharp shoulders and a dramatic neckline slit – similar to those included in the bride’s outfit. Both gowns also boasted figure-hugging bodices.
Rajwa’s long-sleeved frock featured asymmetrical ruching detail over one shoulder and flattered her regal figure, as it gathered at the waist.
She stunned in a breathtaking detachable train, which had floral detailing, adding an extra touch to her majestic look. Wearing a sparkling diamond tiara, the bride looked nothing less than a real life princess.

Finishing off her wedding ceremony look, she held a bouquet of porcelain coloured flowers and wore glitzy diamond earrings to match her tiara.
The lavish service was held at Zahran Palace in Amman, Jordan, where guests and other royals from around the world witnessed the magical event.
Queen Rania was beautiful in black as she greeted guests at the palace alongside her husband King Abdullah ahead of the nuptials.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, Queen Sofia of Spain, Princess Elisabeth and King Philippe of Belgium were among some of the international royals in attendance.
It seems the bride’s designer is also popular with British royals, as Kate donned a blush pink lace dress, also by Elie Saab, at the ceremony.
Rajwa was driven to the Palace in a 1968 Rolls-Royce Phantom V, which was custom-made for the late Queen Zein al-Sharaf, the Crown Prince’s great grandmother.
It was used by King Charles and Queen Camilla (then-Prince and Duchess) on their visit to Jordan in November 2021.
The Crown Prince’s younger brother, Prince Hashem then walked Rajwa to the gazebo and the Islamic marriage ceremony began.
