Queen Rania Shares Romantic Anniversary Message: '22 Years on and My Heart Still Skips a Beat' (PHOTO)
The Queen of Jordan also shows off a breathtaking gift from "Your Majesty," her husband
Nothing says “happy anniversary” like the heart-eyes emoji – and a basket of breathtaking blooms.
On Wednesday, Jordan’s Queen Rania shared a beaming shot of herself holding a stunning bowl of pink flowers that husband King Abdullah gave her on their 22nd anniversary.
The very modern queen, 44, who calls herself a “mum and a wife who has a really cool day job” in her Instagram bio, also shared a romantic message with her 53-year-old husband, writing, “22 years on and my heart still skips a beat . . . So blessed to be at your side. Happy anniversary, Your Majesty.”
“I might have looked like a serene bride in the photos, but that’s because for the journey there, I was largely immobile,” she remembered. “When my brother-in-law Prince Feisal picked me up in a vintage car, its ceiling was so low and my hair was so high, my head jammed and I couldn’t move my neck. ”
And she said, “This life – of princess and then as queen – is not a path traveled by many.”
But as she does, she has embraced social media – like other royals – to forge a connection with her followers.
And that means sharing everyday mom moments alongside more formal snaps. “Throwback from last week . . . Exams are around the corner,” she Instagrammed last week as she stood at the desk of 10-year-old Prince Hashem.
