This is why I liked Rania from the first moment I read about her, I love when she incorporates traditional patterns in her outfit and she always seems so warm towards the people she meets and it seems that she is involved with some great causes in her country. I know that many of you have different opinion on Rania, but my first impressions about her were more than positive and it's hard to see her in any other way.
I actually agree that Rania does her job well. She was one of the first royals that jumped out at me outside of the BRF. She actually seems to understand exactly what her role is and is sincere. That is fairly rare. That being said, she could do her job for much
less. I'm pretty sure she could do the job just as well without the crazy expensive clothing and over the top parties.
It's all about optics. Monarchies have learned this throughout the centuries. The culture has changed and anyone can find out how much her wardrobe costs in under 2 minutes or that her 40th birthday party was extremely extravagant for a place like Jordan. None of the monarchies seem to have caught up to the social media age and figured out how to game the system yet.
