Aside from a number of blue-blood students who proudly received their diplomas, the royal couple proudly watched their son receive his diploma and could not hide the sense of pride and joy they felt for their son’s achievement.
His mother, Queen Rania, is known for her works in promoting education for the youth.
She has remained grounded despite her glamorous life and that hasn’t stopped her from standing up for what she believes in. She could not hide her excitement and posted a photo of them three on her official Instagram account with the caption “A very special day when your first born is graduating from university! What a wonderful journey you have taken us on, Hussein.”
The crown prince also posted a photo of him receiving his diploma on his Instagram page with a very heart-warming caption, “Closing one chapter and beginning another.” Surely, everyone, especially the people of Jordan, are excited on the new journey that lies in store for him not just as a royal but as someone who has accomplished what every parent would dream for their child.
Georgetown University certainly breeds impeccable students. It will be no surprise if the crown prince will be a king that will be remembered once it is time for him to take his place in the throne. Undoubtedly, Georgetown University has gained another notable alumnus.
