Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan is days away from celebrating her daughter Princess Iman's wedding on Sunday to Jameel Thermiotis, and she is setting herself up to be one of the most stylish mother-of-the-brides of all time.

The Jordanian royal – who married King Abdullah II in 1993 – took to Instagram to share some pre-wedding snaps from her daughter's henna party with her 7.4m followers, and we couldn't help but do a double take.

The 52-year-old previously teased fans with a sneak preview of her daughter's dress, with a picture of her adjusting the bead-encrusted belt with the caption: "Finishing touches before Iman's Henna party tonight."

Queen Rania looked characteristically elegant in a burgundy floor-length princess-cut gown. The crimson piece featured three quarter length sleeves and a geometric trim around the cuffs and along the V-shaped neckline.

The dress was fitted at the bodice and the skirt opened out into a central split, allowing her pale pink under layer to show through.

She topped off her look with translucent pointed heels and wore her hair loose in bouncy waves – very reminiscent of Cindy Crawford's iconic 90s bombshell blow dry. "So much love in one room!" Queen Rania gushed. "With friends and family at Iman’s Henna party yesterday."

Princess Iman looked equally regal in a white long-sleeved gown by Reema Dahbour featuring elaborate embroidery to add a touch of texture. Her dress was cinched in at the waist with a stunning, sentimental accessory that was first worn by her mother Queen Rania on her own wedding day. The princess sported a thick white embellished belt by Bruce Oldfield adorned with floral-inspired motifs and was the spitting image of her mother.

In the second snap the mother-daughter partook in a traditional pre-wedding tradition and looked practically identical, all the way down to their polished, soft-focus makeup looks.

We can't wait to see which categorically chic outfits they both opt for on the big day…
