Yesterday, Queen Rania welcomed Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden at the Al Husseiniya Palace in Jordan. For the occasion, the Middle Eastern royal chose a silk organza dress straight off Ralph & Russo’s autumn/winter 2018 ready-to-wear runway collection - but not before working a little modest magic on the frock first.

The original Ralph & Russo dress was sleeveless and fell just below the knee. Ever the fashion afficionado, the Queen of Jordan lengthened the dress a few inches, so the hem sits just above the ankles, and added three-quarter length sleeves to complete the conversative silhouette. The mother-of-four then paired the look with Dior pumps, a Gucci velvet clutch and her trusty Apple watch.

The leaders met to resolve regional crises and strengthen ties between the two countries. They visited a school at the Baqa'a Palestinian refugee camp, about 20 kilometres north of the Jordanian capital before heading back to Sweden later that day. As a nod to her home country, the Princess Victoria wore a blue and purple ruffley number by Scandinavian label Samsoe & Samsoe.
