The guesswork has come to an end – Prince William and Princess Kate are also among the celebrity guests at Jordanian Crown Prince Hussein's wedding to Rajwa Al Saif.
Amman – On June 1, the wedding of Crown Prince Hussein (28) to Saudi Arabian architect Rajwa Al Saif (29) will be celebrated in the Jordanian capital Amman. In front of 140 invited guests, the son of King Abdullah II (61) and Queen Rania of Jordan (52) tied the knot with his bride at Zahran Palace, where Hussein's parents married almost 30 years ago to the day. For a long time it was unclear whether Prince William (40) and Kate Middleton (41) were also part of the illustrious crowd of guests, but now the British heir to the throne has been spotted in Amman.
In addition to Prince William and Kate Middleton: These guests are coming to the dream wedding in Jordan
On the eve of the wedding, Princess Kate and Prince William were filmed crossing the bar of the 5-star St. Regis Hotel in Amman in a good mood after arriving in Jordan. According to the Daily Mail, the Princess of Wales wore a white blouse and a trouser suit by Alexander McQueen, which she owns in several colours. Kate and William will witness an "elegant and unobtrusive religious ceremony" at Zahran Palace on the afternoon of June 1, before celebrating with a proud 1,700 guests at Husseiniya Palace.
Less than a month after the coronation of King Charles III (74) and Queen Camilla (75) in London, there is a big reunion of the royal families in Jordan. In addition to Prince William and Kate Middleton, Prince Frederik (55) and Princess Mary of Denmark (51) are also attending Hussein and Rajwa's wedding. The Netherlands will be represented by King Willem-Alexander (56), Queen Màxima (52) and Princess Amalia (19). According to gala.de, King Philippe of Belgium (63) will be among the guests with daughter Princess Elisabeth (21) as well as Spain's former King Juan Carlos (85) with Queen Sofía (85) and daughter Elena (59).
Princess Kate spent part of her childhood in Jordan
Princess Kate has a very special connection to Jordan. From May 1984 to September 1986, the Middletons lived in Amman, where Kate's father Michael Middleton (73) worked as a manager for British Airways. In 2021, William and Kate traveled to Jordan with their children Prince George (9), Princess Charlotte (8) and Prince Louis (5), where they visited the ruined city of Petra, among other places.

In addition, the Jordanian royal family has long had a close friendship with the British royals. Of course, King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan were also among the guests at the coronation of King Charles III and attended the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II († 96) on September 19, 2022. So it's no wonder that Prince William and Princess Kate are now paying their respects to the Jordanian heir to the throne and his bride. Sources used: dailymail.co.uk, gala.de, Instagram
