The wedding of Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan & Miss Rajwa Khalid Alseif

01 June 2023


Royals from all over the world were invited to Amman in Jordan to attend the glamorous wedding of Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan and Miss Rajwa Khalid Alseif - now Princess Rajwa.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary represented Denmark at the wedding.

Beautiful as always! Mary indeed wore an award winning outfit at the wedding ceremony in Amman. It is the fourth time she is wearing that floral printed Erdem dress. 

First, she wore it in 2017 when celebrating King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway's 80th birthday (here). A couple of years later, Mary stunned again at the 20th anniversary of the American Chamber og Commerce (here). Last but not least, she wore the incredible Erdem dress at the wedding of Prince Gustav and Carina Axelsson in 2022 (here).

At the wedding in Jordan, she embraced the elegant style as wedding guest with a soft grey belt and a matching large hair bow. Never thought we would every see Mary wear a bow like this. Very chic. Clever of her to wear her old grey Manolo Blank pumps.

The delicate golden necklaces are from Halberstadt and Julie Sandlau. All-time favorites at the moment. The custom-made diamond earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry have been in Mary's jewellery box for many years. They come with several different pendants - among others, these diamond drop-shaped ones.

In the evening, Crown Prince Hussein and his wife (now Crown Princess Rajwa) hosted an overwhelming wedding reception for their wedding guests. This gave royals from all over the world the opportunity to engage a little chat.

More than 1,700 people were invited to the evening reception and following dinner at the Palace Al Husseiniya.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary also attended the reception.

I get it if Danish designer Jesper Høvring is proud to see her dress in Jordan at the prestigious wedding. It is indeed a big deal. 

Mary first wore the dress for the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling in 2010 (here). A year later, she showed up at a charity dinner in Australia wearing an altered version of the dress (here). She also stunned wearing the gown when celebrating Prince Joachim's 50th birthday in 2019 (here). Now, Jesper Høvring changed the dress once again. It is indeed beautiful and perfect for the occasion, but a small part of me still loves the first design most.

What design is your favorite? 2010, 2011 or 2023.

Better photos then revealed that Mary embraced her princess-like outfit with a rather new tiara purchased at Bruun Rasmussen Auction and earrings matching. She also wore a few bracelets and a fine ring. All of it looked perfect with both gown, clutch, shoes - and hairdo.

We also have a glimpse of her golden necklaces from Halberstadt and Julie Sandlau.

  1. Very elegant gowns she wore in Jordan. But wearing a shoulder free gown in a Muslim Country and a wedding may not be the best decision made.
