Tomorrow, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein and Miss Rajwa Alseif will get married.

The wedding ceremony, known as a “katb ktab”, will take place at Zahran Palace with around 140 guests, including the royal family of Jordan, invited foreign royals and heads of state.

The event will begin with the arrival of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, who will receive and greet the guests as the Jordanian Armed Forces Musical Band performs. Shortly after, Crown Prince Al Hussein will arrive. They will then make their way to a gazebo in the garden of the palace, where the ceremony will take place.

Miss Rajwa Alseif will arrive at the palace escorted by the Crown Prince’s younger brother, Prince Hashem and younger sister, Princess Salma. Prince Hashem will walk Rajwa to the gazebo for the start of the ceremony. After the ceremony, several women will perform Zaghrata (ululation), a joyous sound
commonly used to express happiness. The Crown Prince and the new Crown Princess will then greet all the guests.

The newlyweds will then travel to the Al Husseiniya Palace as part of the Red Motorcade, which was traditionally a procession of white horses with riders dressed in blue trousers and red blazers. The motorcade and the riders will wear full Jordanian military regalia.

At Al Husseiniya Palace, the celebrations continue with a Zaffeh, a musical procession. Then, through an honorary Arch of Sabers, the newlyweds will proceed through the courtyard towards the greeting stage. Here, they will be joined by both sets of parents to greet over 1,700 guests. The evening will feature several performances and will be concluded with the cutting of the wedding cake.

After the main reception, a wedding banquet will be held.
