Do you think that the next Queen of Jordan (wife of Prince Hussein) will be under the spotlight more than Queen Rania?
Well I can’t predict future, so I’m just making a guess here. If his wife happens to be beautiful (press/people just want to see beautiful people more) or passionate in one international cause, then she’s definitely going to get more media coverage/spotlight. If she decides to be a housewife, then I don’t think she will have the spotlight.
Also, if she is also a foreigner, especially from a country where people read royal news like the UK or US, I can see the media there will focus intensely on her as well. However, as Queen Rania grows old, the spotlight will eventually focus on Hussein’s wife anyway.
