“The Royal Hashemite Court is pleased to announce the engagement of Her Royal Highness Princess Iman bint Abdullah II and Mr. Jameel Alexander Thermiotis, which took place on Tuesday, in the presence of Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al Abdullah, as well as Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, Prince Hashem bin Abdullah II and Princess Salma bint Abdullah II (Iman’s brothers and sisters from Jordan, editor’s note), in addition to family members of Mr. Thermiotis,” the Instagram post read. The court thus congratulated the duo and wished them “a lifetime of happiness”. A publication that does not specify either the place or the date of the union of the couple.
No one expected such news. Indeed, 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.
