In June 2016, Queen Rania attended the Great Arab Revolt Centennial celebration alongside her family. For the celebration, Heaven found that she wore a gorgeous Etro teal gown. The gown had beautiful gold embellishments, as well down the front. She had a gold headband in her hair to match. Rania carried a Dior clutch and wore green drop earrings.
King Abdullah II, Crown Prince Hussein, Princess Muna, and Princess Salma attended with the Queen. The King was dressed in his military uniform, as expected.
The Great Arab Revolt began in June 1916 when independence from the Ottoman Empire was declared by Sherif Hussein bin Ali. The plan was to created a unified Arab state from Syria to Yemen. They had the assistance of Great Britain and France. The revolt ended in October 1918.
Sherif Hussein bin Ali's son was King Abduallah I of Jordan - who is the current King's great grandfather - making Sherif King Abdullah II's great great grandfather.
