Queen Rania in DC

Gorgeous Rania of Jordan is in Washington DC this week, accompanying her husband King Abdalla.

On Tuesday, she launched the April 20-26 Global Action Week organized by the Global Campaign for Education (GCE) to fight illiteracy worldwide with 75 million children currently out of school. “It’s time for a new chapter in the global illiteracy story.”

Yesterday, she delivered a key note at the 8th Annual Global Philanthropy Forum Conference in DC. “The need for global philanthropy is more urgent than ever before”. The Queen said.

Holding a jar of home-made apple jam in her hand, the Queen explained how the answer can be found in the story of a 9 years old Jordanian girl, Leila, who showed appreciation to her community through a remarkably simple gesture. “Leila’s lesson is that philanthropy means so much more than just giving money,” Queen Rania said as she narrated the little girl’s extraordinary story.

Later in the day, The queen, and her 3 children, took a walk down the streets of Washington, and enjoyed the nice weather.

She went out for a jog too :)

I wonder why Rania haven't met Michelle Obama..yet! I remember in a recent interview they asked her about Michelle, and she said: "I havent met her yet, but I'm sure she is nice". :)

I wonder if the Queen is planning to stay in the States until May 4th to attend the annual MET ُexhibition Gala, or as some call it "Oscars of the east". This years theme: Model as Muse, Co-chairing Marc Jacobs, Justin Timberlake & Anna Wintour. Queen Rania attended the 2oo7 MET gala: Poiret King of fashion and wore Giambattista Valli. I hope she will be attending! :D

And I'm guessing we'll see her on the Best Dressed list of Style next week ;)
