The wedding date had previously been hinted at by Hussein's mother, Queen Rania, when she accidentally let slip details about the wedding plans.

Rania reportedly took to her Instagram Stories to share a clip from her royal appearance at Madaba with Shabab42 Foundation, in which she candidly revealed that the nuptials would take place during the summer.

Hussein proposed to Rajwa back in August, with the Jordanian Palace confirming the news of the engagement. The proposal took place at the home of Ms Rajwa's father in Riyadh, where members of both families were in attendance.

Further details about the wedding, including the guest list, have not yet been shared, but Hussein does enjoy a close bond with Prince William, even hosting the Prince of Wales during his tour of the middle east in 2018.

Hussein invited William to his home so that the dad-of-three could watch England play in the 2018 World Cup; the British royal had missed the live game due to prior engagements, but the pair watched a taped recording.

William also shares a close bond with Hussein's mother, Queen Rania, as she is a council member for the Earthshot Prize.

Hussein and Rajwa aren't the only royal couple set to marry in 2023, as it was confirmed earlier this week that Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg will tie the knot with her beau Mr. Nicolas Bagory in April.
