Her initiatives to airdrop medical supplies reveal a humanitarian facet, bridging the gap between military duty and global responsibility.
    Princess Salma’s story echoes far beyond the borders of Jordan, inspiring individuals worldwide to redefine their perceptions of traditional roles and embrace a future where courage, compassion, and capability know no gender bounds.

So much love in one room! With friends and family at Iman’s Henna party yesterday,” the Queen of Jordan expressed. For the henna party, Queen Rania Rajwa Al Saif wore traditional pink ensembles with complementing jewellery, keeping it minimal and chic for the pre-wedding event.
    Going for an understated yet impactful look, the bride wore an all-white, intricately embroidered traditional full-length dress by Jordanian-Palestinian designer Reema Dahbour.
