Queen Rania of Jordan celebrated her son Prince Hussein's graduation on Sunday, and shared a snap of herself with her husband Abdullah II of Jordan and the prince to mark the occasion.

The proud mother looked stunning in a loose white blouse with colourful embroidery, with her long brunette tresses left in loose curls as she posed with her husband and son. She captioned the photo:  "A very special day when your first born is graduating from university! What a wonderful journey you have taken us on, Hussein. #Graduation #Pride #Jordan #LoveJO."

The crown prince, who also holds the title of first lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces, grinned for the camera while dressed in a black and yellow graduation robe and cap. The 21-year-old crown prince studied at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., where he majored in international history.

Queen Rania is a keen Instagram and Twitter user, and regularly keeps her followers updated with her family's milestones. She recently mentioned Prince Hussein on Mother's Day, thanking him for her gift. In the post, she wrote: "A thoughtful Mother's Day gift from Prince Hussein! Proud to be the mother of a compassionate and caring young man. Thanks to the King Hussein Cancer Foundation's 'Gift of Giving.'"


The queen is known for her extensive charity work, and one of her most recent visits was to the Kara Tepe refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos in April, where the mum-of-four met refugees as advocate for the Internation Rescue Committee.

In a speech, the Queen spoke about how refugees need help, saying: "Refugees are not numbers. They are human beings like you and I, except they have seen unspeakable horror and have experienced unthinkable tragedy and hardship. They risked everything, their families, their possessions just to make it to safety."
