  1. Congratulations to the pair. Love her dress and the unusual use of the brooch in her headdress. She reminds me a lot of her mother in her youth.

    1. Hussein was the king of Jordania, not of Saudi.
      Abdullah, the present king of Jordania, is a half-brother of the bride.

    2. Yes, J, it's very evident you haven't heard of her.

      Queen Noor was the 4th wife of King Hussein of Jordan and she had 4 children.

      She doesn't have the highest profile but for people who follow royalty she isn't a complete unknown.
