    Queen Rania’s 53rd birthday: A recap of Her Majesty’s year in public service

    Life

    by Ruman Baig
    3 hours ago

    On the occasion of her 53rd birthday, we look back at Queen Rania’s tireless contribution in the service of her people.
    Starting from the groung level
    Like every other year, Queen Rania remained dedicated to addressing the concerns of the Jordanian public by conducting numerous visits to charitable organizations, small businesses, startups, and various groups across the nation’s urban and rural areas.
    Empowering women
    Renowned for her advocacy for women and youth, Her Majesty’s local involvements encompassed interactions with women artisans and young entrepreneurs, as well as trips to women-led initiatives and associations promoting women’s financial empowerment.
    Equality for every faith
    During last March’s holy month of Ramadan, for the second consecutive year, the Queen arranged a mission to Umrah, the lesser Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, for 500 Jordanian women. A subset of this group included the Queen herself, who joined them on this sacred pilgrimage. Earlier, in December 2022, Her Majesty partook in the illumination of the Fuheis Christmas tree among members of Jordan’s Christian community.
    Raising awareness
    Additionally, Queen Rania spoke at the 2023 Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal, highlighting concerns about society’s increasing dependence on technology. “I worry that we’re undervaluing the most precious asset: our time,” Her Majesty remarked. “As virtual reality advances, we must not disregard our tangible reality’s necessities.”
    Warrior for climate change
    In her role as a member of the Earthshot Prize Council, the Queen delivered a speech at the inaugural Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit in New York, occurring alongside the United Nations General Assembly. During her address, she urged for united efforts and inventive solutions to mend the planet, cautioning against dismissing “climate change as someone else’s issue” or leaving it to future generations to address.
    Voicing against refugee discrimination
    The Queen repeatedly highlighted inequalities in refugee treatment based on their country of origin. While speaking at the Paris Peace Forum, she observed the differing reception of refugees from Ukraine compared to those from nations like Syria, Myanmar, and South Sudan, all of whom had been forced from their homes.“What explains this contrast in empathy? Does skin color dictate the distinction?” she inquired.

    Queen Rania of Jordan shared a glimpse of her family’s 2023 summer break.
    Taking some much-needed time off, the Royal Family of Jordan are spending their summer together. Queen Rania, who was away from social media for most of August, shared a few pictures with King Abdulla II of Jordan and her two younger kids, Prince Hashem and Princess Salma.
    It has been a busy year for the Jordanian Royal family. The year began with the King and Queen’s oldest daughter, Princess Iman’s grand wedding to Jameel Alexander Thermiotis in March. Followed by the wedding celebrations of the Crown Prince of Hussein and Princess Rajwa Al-Husseins wedding celebrations in June.
    As the older Royal kids embarked on new journies with their significant others, the King and Queen of Jordan spent their summer bonding with the younger two. Princess Salma, who recently graduated from the University of Southern California and Prince Hashem, who is now a High School graduate, are making the most of their summer before entering the next busy phase of their lives.
    Princess Salma holds the rank of First Lieutenant in the Jordanian Air Force and also holds a degree in archeology. While academically, his path is yet to be revealed to the world, Prince Hashem has recently been filling some big shoes by accompanying His Highness King Abdulla II and Queen Rania on their official visit to Spain. Learning the ropes of their roles early on, both Prince Hashem and Princess Salma have a promising future ahead.
    Take a look at the Jordanian Royal family’s quiet summer away from home:
