25 years old and engaged
The second of Jordan’s royal couple’s four children, Princess Iman will celebrate her 26th birthday on September 27, and got engaged this summer to a certain Jameel Alexander Thermiotis. “Congratulations my dearest Iman! Your smile has always been a gift filled with love, which I have treasured since the day you were born. I wish you and Jamil a life full of love and laughter!” reacted Queen Rania in an Instagram post.
In Jordan, the future husband of the princess remains an illustrious stranger, with whom she had never formalized the relationship. Little information has also filtered through on the lucky winner. The latter was born in 1994, in Caracas, Venezuela. He is currently serving as associate director of a New York-based venture capital fund, according Hello ! Magazine . Born in 1996, the daughter of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania meanwhile studied in Washington, but now spends most of her time in Jordan, where she regularly attends official events with her parents.

Kering’s fight against violence against women
Hosted by American journalist and television host Anderson Cooper, the Kering Foundation’s Caring for Women Dinner was co-chaired by Queen Rania as well as François-Henri Pinault, his wife, actress Salma Hayek, model Gisele Bündchen, actress LaTanya Richardson Jackson and her husband, actor and producer Samuel L. Jackson, visual artist Julie Mehretu and feminist Gloria Steinem.
The foundation of the French luxury group Kering has been fighting, since its creation in 2008, “against violence against women by helping survivors to live free from violence, by changing behaviors and attitudes to break the cycle of violence and by taking collective action against violence,” can we read on the website of the organization. It funds local NGOs to provide support and resources to women and those directly affected by violence.
