We regularly hear about the beautiful style of the Duchess of Cambridge, Queen Letizia of Spain, and other key European royals but there is another Queen of Fashion who deserves more attention: Queen Rania of Jordan.
There is no doubt that Queen Rania is one of the most stylish royals in the world. When it comes to elegance, the Queen’s style is the ultimate source of inspiration.
Rania Al-Abdullah was born in Kuwait to a Palestinian family. Later she moved to Jordan for work where she met the then prince Abdullah. Since marrying him in 1993, Rania has embraced her nation’s dress codes and traditions like the best of them, but she has put her own fashion-forward spin on things too.
The Queen has become known for her advocacy work related to empowerment, education, health, youth, cultural dialogue etc. But wherever she goes, her Majesty is always beautifully dressed. Her wardrobe doesn’t only exist of prestigious international designers as Balmain, Dior and Valentino, but up-and-coming Middle Easters designers too.
