News and commentary about the reigning royal houses of the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands, Spain, Monaco -- and the former European monarchies as well.
I'm surprised that she mentions Princess Muna being more of a mother to her than Noor. That seems strange since she was so young (and presumably at home) when her father married Lisa Halaby. I'm sure it couldn't have been easy to get a step-mother so quickly, but still...Or is that one of those dog whistle delineations, as if she were drawing lines for the future when the next king needs to be decided. Abdullah's progeny vs. Noor's...?
Abdullah has already removed Noor's elder son as Crown Prince, further marginalizing that branch of the family.I thought it strange that Haya said that her father married Alia but did not divorce Muna. Muna and Hussein were divorced in 1972, as it was reported in the press at the time.
