Random Royaling – Royal Blues

May 25th was Jordan’s 74th Independence Day, commemorating the end of British rule, and the declaration of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The King, Queen and Crown Prince all appeared at the ceremonies. Fortunately for us, the very good looking family all sported shades of blue and white. Rania, as usual, is at her best when wearing versions of traditional dress.

The King and Queen also made calls to both the children and caregivers at Dar-Al- Hanan orphanage. I think Rania’s shirt is a deep navy, but I admit is Abdullah in his sharp blue who catches my eye here.

This compilation video doesn’t follow the blue and white theme all the way through, but it was so lovely that I felt it should be included. Rania obviously has a rapport with her public.

Princess Laurentien had a birthday, 54 years young, and she appeared in a bright blue and white blouse that just makes me happy. Happy birthday, madame.

Would someone join me in imploring the Earl and Countess of Wessex in getting their own social media feeds? I feel we miss so many of their events. Sophie and Ed helped the community start Ramadan by joining them to pack food parcels for those self-isolating. Sophie is wearing a pure blue flowy shirt, and I sure would like to see more of it. And her good works.

Today marks the end of Ramadan and the start of Eid celebrations for Muslims across the world. #EidMubarak • The Earl and Countess of Wessex were pleased to join volunteers at @shahjahanmosque on Thursday, where they helped pack food parcels. Ramadan has been very different this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, however these challenges have not stopped communities coming together to help those in need. The Woking Mosque is running a 24-hour service offering food parcels to those self-isolating, NHS workers and families in need of support. Donations from the Mosque, local churches and supermarkets are keeping the service going, with people of all faiths coming together to volunteer – so far the initiative has helped over 400 local households. Visit our YouTube channel (link in story) to watch an #Eid message from the Earl and Countess.

Although there still aren’t enough events of interest to start up Bits and Bobs, we’ll sticky this post for people to add information as it happens throughout the week. Hope all the blue made your Tuesday better!
