Ever since it was announced that Jordan’s Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah is engaged to Rajwa Al-Saif, the two have become among the region’s most-followed duos. Be it a family portrait or an intimate outing, pictures of the soon-to-be-wed royal couple never fail to top trending charts, with well wishers all over the globe sharing comments of congratulations on social media.
This week, Rajwa and Prince Hussein made another rare public appearance prior to their royal wedding, which has reportedly been set for June 1, 2023. The two stepped out to pay a visit an art workshop for the blind in Amman. The outing also marked their second royal engagement as a couple, for which they displayed a united front in matching all-black ensembles. While Prince Hussein chose a black polo, trousers and casual jacket, Rajwa complemented his look in a smart V-neck blouse in ebony, along with mildly distressed black jeans and a structured overcoat. To complete her look, the bride-to-be opted for a delicate necklace and dainty earrings, and had her hair pulled back into a half-up, half-down do.
According to reports, the young duo had a great time meeting the youngsters at the workshop, with Rajwa Al-Saif even requesting the children to draw pictures of her future home. When Prince Hussein suggested his fiancée join in to indulge her love for drawing, she responded saying “but I’m shy of joining since you all have great talents!”
Post the get-together, Prince Hussein took to Instagram to share snippets of his afternoon with a heartfelt caption. “Rajwa and I were truly privileged today to meet with a group of inspiring young artists who have conquered their visual disability through their exceptional talents and artistic sensitivities,” the royal wrote. “It was heartwarming to witness their insightful and immense creativity firsthand.”
