Crown Prince Hussein paid a heartfelt tribute to his wife, Princess Rajwa, following their royal wedding on Thursday.

Sharing a beautiful photograph of the pair after their ceremony at Zahran Palace in Amman, the future Jordanian king wrote in his Instagram post: "God has blessed me with Rajwa, the light of my life and my lifelong companion. May our marriage bring us both peace and warmth. I pray that God continues to bless us.

"Once again, my deepest thanks to everyone who celebrated with us from our beloved Jordan, as well as our family and loved ones from around the world. I could not be more thankful to God for the countless blessings He has granted me today, and to Rajwa for everything she is to me."

The 28-year-old royal tied the knot with his long-term love and architect, Rajwa Al Saif, 29, in front of 140 guests at the palace, which included the Prince and Princess of Wales, and Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

The royal bride looked stunning in a long sleeve silk crepe gown by Lebanese fashion designer, Elie Saab, with draping details across the bodice and enhanced with a long train embellished with cut-out flowers and pearl details. Rajwa also accessorised with a new diamond tiara and matching earrings.
