The identical tumbling brunette hair, delicate features and svelte physiques – the resemblance between Queen Rania of Jordan and Spain's Crown Princess Letizia is remarkable.
The meeting of the two ladies – both considered to be among royalty's most stylish women, was the most anticipated moment of the Spanish princess' trip to Jordan with her husband Crown Prince Felipe.
Commentators often remark on their shared sense of style. Fitting then, that both ladies chose knee-length, sharply tailored outfits in pretty pastel tones. And both wore summer-ready slingback heels.
They greeted each other warmly with a kiss when they came face to face at the royal palace in Amman.
The Jordanian queen afterwards posted on Twitter: "So pleased 2 welcome Spain's beautiful couple Crown Prince Felipe & Princess Letizia. Ahlan wa Sahlan (Welcome)"
