The Princess of Wales chose a beautiful blush pink Elie Saab dress for the wedding of Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan and Rajwa Al Saif. This is not the first time Catherine, Princess of Wales has worn a gown by Elie Saab. For the recent Buckingham Palace Garden Party, she wore a chic powder blue Elie Saab mid-length dress that she had previously worn to Royal Ascot in 2019.

The Prince and Princess of Wales were not the only British royals in attendance at the wedding. They were joined by Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. 

According to the Daily Mail, “in a touching nod to the late queen Elizabeth the newly married couple are due to depart from the wedding to their reception in a 1984 Range Rover which was specially customised for her visit to the country.”

Although it is not known how long the Prince and Princess of Wales are staying for the wedding, Catherine, Princess of Wales previously lived in Jordan for three years in the 1980s after her father Michael Middleton relocated to Amman for work. Michael worked for British Airways at the time. 

According to The National, “While Mrs Middleton looked after Pippa (Kate’s younger sister Pippa Middleton, now Matthews), at home, Kate was enrolled in Assahera nursery, one of the most expensive nurseries in the area with an annual fee of US$1,000 at the time.” The article goes on to say that “The sojourn in Jordan was by all accounts a happy time in Miss Middleton's childhood.”
