The couple's happy news was shared to Instagram 

The Crown Prince will one day inherit the throne, and has already taken on many official royal duties over the last few years, including stepping in for his dad earlier this year, when the King was hospitalised for spinal surgery.

He's also head of the Crown Prince Foundation, which was set up to helping local youth "employ their full potential and creativity."

He plays an active role in all of his foundation's initiatives, from helping open the Al Hussein Technical University to providing cochlear implants to the hearing impaired to teaching leadership skills to high school students.

In 2017, he appeared to be pictured on a trip with some celebrity pals including Karlie Kloss, Ellie Goulding and Meghan Markle's designer friend Misha Nonoo.
