21 OCTOBER 2009

The flowing locks, stylish neutral ensemble and air of quiet self-assurance: just past her 13th birthday, Queen Rania of Jordan's girl Iman is developing a fashion sense that owes more than a little to her famously elegant mother's sartorial savvy.

Mum and daughter made a chic duo on a visit to Rome, with the teenager in a beige skirt, white top and pumps combination that could have been taken straight from Rania's wardrobe.

The royal and husband King Abdullah always make a conscious effort to be hands-on parents to Iman and her siblings – Hussein, 15, Salma, nine, and Hashem, four – and be there for bedtime and homework.

"I want my children to be treated as normally as possible," she recently told HELLO!.

"So I tell [people]: 'Drop the title when you're talking to them; if they buy something don't carry their bags for them".

Their efforts seem to have paid off. As they toured the city's famous Borghese Gallery during their trip, the teenage princess looked like the kind of unspoilt, young lady that any mother could be proud of.
