Jordan's Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah married Saudi architect Rajwa Al Seif on Thursday in a ceremony attended by royals from across the globe.

The ceremony was held in the mid-century Zahran Palace in the capital Amman-- the site of other key royal weddings including that of King Abdullah II to Queen Rania as well as that of his father, the late King Hussein bin Talal.

The king's eldest son and Al Seif, both aged 28, tied the knot at a ceremony attended by their families and 140 guests, including US First Lady
Jill Biden and the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Other notables included the Netherlands' King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima, as well as Belgium's King Philippe and Crown Princess Elisabeth and Danish Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.

A royal red motorcade, reserved for special occasions, crossed the capital to celebrate the bride and groom.

His bride was born and raised in conservative Saudi Arabia but is also Western educated, having studied architecture at Syracuse University in New York.
