  1. Lovely visit! King Abdullah is a graduate of Sandhurst University. He even addressed and presided the graduation ceremonies as Queen Elizabeth’s representative back in 2017. The friendly ties between the two countries are quite strong and Prince Charles and the Duchess’ visit serves to keep them strong. The ladies looked great! I especially liked Camilla’s gorgeous mint green gown and Queen Rania’s amazing brooch at the gala dinner. And I think I saw Princess Sarvath al-Hassan in the background, looking quite lovely in an embellished gown.
