A lip reader has revealed what was said between the Jordanian Royal Family and William and Kate when the Prince and Princess of Wales arrived for today’s lavish wedding in Amman.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, 40 and 41, traveled to Jordan – where Kate lived for a short time as a child – to watch Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan marry Saudi architect Rajwa Al-Saif, 29 years.
When they arrived at Zahran Palace, the pair were greeted by King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan and paused to catch up before being seated.
The last time the couples saw each other was at King Charles’s coronation in May, and according to a lip reader, Queen Rania told William during their conversation: ‘They were so good’.
While it’s unclear who she was referring to, it could be a reference to the couple’s three children, George, Charlotte and Louis.

King Abdullah II also appeared to reflect on a memory of the conversation and said to William: “Yes, I do remember that, it was beautiful.”
Prince William said: “Yes, it’s crazy, I know!” They’re adorable, yes, although it’s unclear who the prince was referring to.
The king smiles before answering: “Thank you”.
As William and the monarch shook hands at the start of their conversation, the king said: “Hello, how are you feeling?” while the queen kissed him and said, “It’s so good to see you again.”
The Prince of Wales then added: ‘Thank you, you’re very kind, that was wonderful, thank you’, before pausing and adding, ‘very much yes’.
It is then believed that Kate asked the Jordanian royal couple how they were doing, adding: ‘There is so much going on.
Queen Rania replied: “Yes, there are so many. I can’t wait to go on vacation after that.
Both William and Kate then said, “oh my God” – with William laughing.
“See you at reception,” Kate added.

The Prince of Wales then put his arms around Kate, as Queen Rania said: “Thank you very much, we’ll see you later.”
And then King – at the same time – raises his hands and says, “Lovely, yes, we’ll see you.”
Jordan holds a special place in Kate and William’s hearts, and the royal couple took their children on vacation to the country in 2021.
The Middleton family spent two years in Jordan in the early 1980s, from when Kate was just two, after her father Michael, a British Airways flight dispatcher, was transferred to Amman for work .
