The Queen of Jordan shared a never-before-seen photo from Princess Rajwa's henna party
Queen Rania of Jordan is celebrating double the birthday joy.
On Tuesday, the Queen of Jordan, 52, wished her daughters, Princess Iman and Princess Salma, a happy birthday with a thoughtful tribute on Instagram. Salma turned 23 on Tuesday, while Iman will turn 27 on Wednesday.
“My whole heart! Happy birthday to my sweet daughters, I cherish you more and more every day,” Rania captioned the snap, which showed her and her daughters posing closely and smiling at the camera. The previously unseen picture was taken at the henna party Queen Rania threw for her daughter-in-law Rajwa Alseif in May ahead of her June 1 wedding to Crown Prince Hussein.
Queen Rania and her husband, King Abdullah of Jordan, are parents to four — Crown Prince Hussein, 29, Princess Iman, Princess Salma and Prince Hasheem, 18. As the King’s eldest son, Hussein is heir to the throne of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, making Princess Rajwa the future queen.
The two tied the knot in a dazzling royal wedding at the start of the summer in nuptials that doubled as a royal reunion. Royals from around the world traveled to Amman for the epic celebration, including Prince William and Kate Middleton. The wedding was held nearly a year after Crown Prince Hussein announced his engagement to Rajwa, who received a princess title on their wedding day.
Princess Rajwa, 29, has since embraced life in the royal fold and traveled to the United States in July with her husband and in-laws for a trip to Sun Valley, Idaho. She also joined Hussein in Washington, D.C. last week to meet with members of Congress about the strategic relationship between Jordan and the U.S.
As Princess Rajwa steps further into the royal spotlight, Queen Rania revealed the advice she gave Rajwa before she and Hussein took their engagement public last summer. Queen Rania shared the tip while appearing on TODAY last Wednesday during her visit to New York City for the United Nations General Assembly.
"One of the first things, just before my son announced his engagement, I took Rajwa to the side and the first thing I told her was that there's no such thing as 100 percent approval rating," the Queen of Jordan told Hoda Kotb. "You're always going to have people that are against you, and the advice that I want to give you is 'Please try not to read the comments.'
"You know, you're just going to have self-doubt, and there's always going to be negativity — and it's not about you, it's from the person. They're unhappy in their own lives. So don't carry that unhappiness . . . it'll shake your confidence," she continued. "You just need to develop healthy habits around technology, and that's what you try to teach your kids. Not to stay away necessarily from their phones, but to interact with them in a healthier way and to also establish that balance.”

While Princess Rajwa does not maintain a public presence on social media, her husband does. In addition to posting recaps from their recent trip to D.C., the heir to the throne also celebrated his wife with a heartfelt Instagram post the day after they got married. Hussein, who serves as a captain in the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army, shared the message with a formal portrait where he stood beside his bride at Zahran Palace in their wedding finery.
“God has blessed me with Rajwa, the light of my life and my lifelong companion,” Hussein began the caption. “May our marriage bring us both peace and warmth. I pray that God continues to bless us. Once again, my deepest thanks to everyone who celebrated with us from our beloved Jordan, as well as our family and loved ones from around the world. I could not be more thankful to God for the countless blessings He has granted me today, and to Rajwa for everything she is to me.”
