The wedding celebration of Hussein, Crown Prince of Jordan and Rajwa Al Saif is underway and several foreign royals are in attendance, including Kate Middleton and Prince William.
For the lavish banquet, the Princess of Wales is wearing a pink sequin gown by Jenny Packham with the Lover's Knot Tiara. Sometimes referred to as the Cambridge Lover's Knot, the sparkling headpiece was created for Queen Mary in the early 20th century by the House of Garrard from pearls and diamonds already owned by her family. Kate wore her signature brown hair in loose waves with it on and complemented her elegant ensemble with Queen Elizabeth's Greville Chandelier Earrings. The Prince of Wales, meanwhile, looked dapper alongside his wife in a tuxedo and military badges.
This marks her first tiara moment of 2023 and her 14th time wearing one overall. (It would have been her second time wearing a sparkling headpiece this year if she had worn one to King Charles's coronation last month, but the British royal family decided to keep their looks low-key in keeping with a pared-back atmosphere.) In addition to the Lover's Knot Tiara, Kate has previously also worn the Cartier Halo Tiara and Lotus Flower Tiara.
Earlier today, Prince Hussein and the newly-minted Princess Rajwa tied the knot at Zahran Palace in an Islamic wedding ceremony, known as the "katb katb," in front of family—including the groom's parents, Queen Rania and King Abdullah—and several foreign guests and diplomats. The Saudi Arabian bride looked stunning in an Elie Saab dress which she paired with a beautiful veil and tiara. Following the ceremony, Prince Hussein and Rajwa took part in motorcade parade to Al Husseiniya Palace, where their wedding reception is taking place.
The Waleses were also in attendance for the ceremony at Zahran Palace. Kate opted for a flowy embroidered, long sleeve pink dress by Elie Saab with diamond drop earrings, while William wore navy suit with a matching blue tie. Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, were among the other royals who flew in for the biggest royal wedding of the year. Beatrice chose a pale blue frilly gown by Needle and Thread and accessorized with a bow in her hair.
Today's affair is the second Jordanian wedding of the year. In March, Prince Hussein's sister Princess Iman married Jameel Alexander Thermiotis at Beit Al-Urdon Palace in Amman. Queen Rania and King Abdullah also have two other unmarried children: Princess Salma, 22, and Prince Hashem, 18.
