What an exciting time for the Jordanian royal family!

On Sunday, King Abdullah and Queen Rania will see their eldest daughter, Princess Iman, tie the knot with her fiancé, Jameel Thermiotis – the first of two weddings this year.

Ahead of the nuptials, Queen Rania hosted a henna party for Iman. And her pride was evident as they embraced at the special celebration, which traditionally sees the bride gets mehndi or henna paint applied to her hands and feet. Watch their special moment together in the video below.

Iman, 26, looked incredibly beautiful on the night, wearing a flowing white dress with billowing sleeves, created by Reema Dahbour, a Jordanian designer with Palestinian roots.

Her hair was perfectly styled in loose waves and she opted for light, natural makeup.

She also chose to pay a very sweet tribute to her mother.

Around her waist, Iman wore the belt that Rania wore on her own wedding day to Abdullah back in 1993. The belt, like the rest of Rania's wedding attire, was made for the Queen by designer Bruce Oldfield.

Royal fans were delighted – and a little surprised – when Iman's wedding date was announced earlier this week.

The happy news comes seven months after her engagement to Jameel was announced in July. Jameel was born in Venezuela and is of Greek descent. He now works in finance in New York.

Further details about the wedding day, including the venue, are yet to be announced.

Iman is the second child born to Abdullah and Rania, who have been married since 1993. She has one older brother, Crown Prince Hussein, 28, and younger siblings Princess Salma, 22, and Prince Hashem, 18.

A short time after the wedding date was announced, Rania took to Instagram to share a beautiful montage video of Iman documenting her over the years.

Queen Rania also shared a series of photos from the special event

The clip included an image showing Iman wearing a tiara for the very first time. The glittering headpiece is Rania's own Diamond Tiara, which she has worn in official portraits and on state visits. It's not known if Iman will wear the same tiara on her wedding day.

Rania, 52, wrote in the caption: "The first time I held my baby girl, I knew my life would never be the same. In a week, she will be a bride. My precious Iman, I am so happy for you and so proud of everything that you are.”
