The Crown Prince of Jordan Hussein's marriage to Rajwa Al-Saif took place at Zahran Palace in Amman on Thursday, and royals from around the world joined the year's glamourous wedding ceremony.

Britain’s Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton also attended the nuptials of the country's future King and his Saudi Arabian bride.

The attendance of the British royals had been kept under wraps, and was only confirmed by Jordanian state media a few hours before the start of the palace ceremony.

First Lady Jill Biden is also in Amman to attend the royal wedding. She accompanied by her daughter, Ashley Biden, and her sister, Bonny Jacobs, Dr. Biden arrived yesterday in the Middle Eastern nation.

The wedding of Jordan’s 28-year-old heir to the throne to a 29-year-old architect linked to her own country’s monarch, emphasises continuity in an Arab state prized for its long standing stability.

The celebration buttresses the royal family’s order of succession, refreshes its image after a palace feud and may even help resource-poor Jordan forge a strategic bond with its oil-rich neighbour, Saudi Arabia.

The festivities, which started Thursday afternoon, introduce Hussein and Rajwa to a wider global audience.
