The Jordanian royal family are celebrating their third wedding of the year as Talal El-Saleh married his partner, Danah Sishan.
King Abdullah II’s nephew Talal and his fiancée announced their engagement at the end of November and held an engagement ceremony weeks later.
Princess Alia bint Al-Hussein of Jordan took to Instagram to share a handful of photographs from the event, including snaps of the bride beaming with joy as she chatted with guests.
Their wedding is the latest in a flurry of Jordanian royal nuptials, which have happened this year.
The couple’s engagement ceremony, which took place last December, involved the groom-to-be whose brother Abdul also got engaged around the same time placing a ring on his bride’s finger in front of their loved ones.
Sharing a snippet of the event on social media, Danah wore a cream one-shouldered dress with a feather trimmed hem for the occasion.
She was pictured standing alongside her soon to be mother-in-law Princess Alia, 66, who donned a lilac suit with a floral shirt, and her husband-to-be Talal.
Danah’s mother wore a black midi-dress as the four of them posed for a photo taken in a living area with gold and cream furnishings.
Posting the pictures to Instagram, Princess Alia said: ‘God Bless them all’.
People from all over the world took to social media to congratulate the latest Jordanian engagement, with one saying: ‘A thousand congratulations to the beautiful couple on their engagement.’
Meanwhile, another dubbed the bride-to-be’s silver patent high-heeled shoes ‘yummy’.
Talal Al-Saleh is the son of Princess Alia Bint Hussein and Sayyid Mohammed Al-Saleh, who is the royal’s second husband.
The groom is named after his grandfather King Talal, who died in 1999.
Earlier this year, King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan proudly watched as their son was wed during an Islamic ceremony known as a ‘katb ktab’ held in a gazebo and conducted by the Royal Hashemite Court Imam Dr Ahmed Al Khalaileh.
Guests including William and Kate, 40 and 41, Beatrice, 34, with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 39, appeared overjoyed as they watched the nuptials of Sandhurst graduate Hussein and Saudi Arabian-born architect Rajwa, also 28, in the garden of the Zahran Palace.
Rajwa dazzled in a white gown by Lebanese designer Elie Saab, which featured a lengthy train embroidered with flowers, and a sparkling diamond tiara.
Rajwa received a degree from Syracuse University in New York, and studied at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles after completing her secondary education in Saudi Arabia.
She has worked at an architecture firm in Los Angeles and currently works at the Designlab Experience studio in Riyadh.
She is the youngest daughter of Khaled M. Al-Saif and Azza bint Naif Al-Sudairi.
Mr Al-Saif is CEO of the Al Saif Group, a private company with a diverse portfolio of businesses across healthcare, construction and security services, and is a board member of the Saudi-British Joint Business Council, which promotes trade between the two countries.
Crown Prince Hussein, the eldest of King Abdullah and Queen Rania’s four children, is a graduate of prestigious Georgetown University in Washington DC, and served in the Army after graduating from Sandhurst in 2017.
In 2015 he made history as the youngest person to chair a meeting of the United Nations Security Council.
He made headlines last year when he hosted Prince William on a visit to the Middle East.
