Congratulations are in order, as the first royal wedding of 2020 has officially taken place in the UK...
Princess Raiyah Bint Al Hussein, the youngest daughter of Queen Noor and the late King Hussein of Jordan married British journalist Ned Donavan, Roald Dahl's nephew in an charming, intimate ceremony on Tuesday.
According to Arab News, Queen Noor and a few other guests were in attendance for the ceremony, which was taken place in a courtyard.
The bride wore a stunning white-long sleeve wedding gown. Her breathtaking desing featured intrictate beading to form delicate floral embroidery. Her jeweled headpiece appears to have been fashioned out of her mother's brooch. Her veil was floor-length and matched her beautiful gown.
The groom looked dapper in a classic morning suit with a bright blue vest and secret pop of colour, in the form of a pair of red socks.
Thank you all for your kind messages on our wedding!While it was originally planned for April in Jordan, the pandemic derailed those plans and it was safer for my husband’s family to hold it in the UK. God willing we look forward to celebrating in Jordan once the situation allows pic.twitter.com/moCMSOxZxp— Raiyah bint Al-Hussein (@RaiyahHKJ) July 7, 2020
Shortly after their nuptials, Princess Raiyah posted a few photos from the day on Twitter, and thanked everyone for their messages. She explained that while the wedding was originally planned in April in Jordan, it was safer to have the ceremony in the UK and stated that another ceremony will be held in Jordan in the future.
