The Prince and Princess of Wales may have been riding solo as they attended the incredible Jordan royal wedding of the year without their brood of three.
But it seems their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were far from some of the other guests’ minds during the nuptials in Jordan of Crown Prince Hussein and his new wife Rajwa.
That’s because a lip reader has uncovered that they faced a thoughtful question about the kids as they arrived at the wedding ceremony.
Yesterday, as they entered the Zahran Palace in Jordan for the glamorous wedding, William and Kate were greeted by the groom’s parents King Abdullah and his wife Queen Rania.
The couple are known to be close to the British royals with Rania even a member of William’s Earthshot Prize Council – and the two couples certainly spent a long time chatting.
And according to lip reader Jeremy Freeman, it appears that Rania was eager to ask about their children were getting on.
As the couple entered, they shared pleasantries as he believes Abdullah said to William “so good to see you”, while he told Kate “it’s a pleasure to see you”.
After William and Rania kissed each other on the cheeks, the Queen of Jordan is thought to have said: “It’s so good to see you, how are your children?”
Unfortunately, the camera doesn’t show William to decipher his response but Rania then appeared to follow up with “that’s good”.
At the marriage ceremony, Kate wore a flowing dusky pink dress by the designer Elie Saab, while William looked smart in a suit.
Also attending the nuptials was William’s cousin Princess Beatrice, who was seen arriving in a blue Needle and Thread gown alongside her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
They watched as Hussein tied the knot with bride Rajwa, who also wore an Elie Saab wedding gown for the event.
Later, Kate pulled out all the stops in a dazzling tiara as she and William attended a white-tie evening reception along with other guests.
She wore the stunning Lover’s Knot tiara teamed with a pink, embellished gown by designer Jenny Packham. It was the first time Kate has worn a tiara since the Diplomatic Reception at Buckingham Palace in December.
No royals wore tiaras for King Charles’ Coronation last month with Kate opting for a flower headpiece by Alexander McQueen and Jess Collett instead.
Hussein, a graduate of the UK’s Sandhurst Military Academy, and Rajwa’s engagement was announced last August with a ceremony to mark it taking place in the bride’s home city of Riyadh.
The wedding comes after a difficult period for Jordan’s monarchy, including a public rift between the king and his half-brother, with some commentators interpreting the national celebrations as a way of shoring up public support at a time of persistent economic difficulties.
