She is 22 and he is 31, so there's quite an age gap.

As the countdown to the 2008 Olympic and Paralympic Games continues, six Royal Holloway, University of London students and alumni are aiming to bring back glory from Beijing......

Table tennis player Zeina Shaban, 20, who is studying Economics and Management at the College, has a specific tactic for keeping her nerves at bay when taking on the world’s best: ‘I won’t even look at my opponent. I’ll pretend they’re not there’, she explains. ‘It’s a high speed game and you have to be strong mentally. The competitor uses the usual tactics of grunting to try to put you off, but I do not see nor hear anything surrounding the table – I just focus on the ball and play’.

Zeina has been playing table tennis since she was seven and is something of an icon in her home country, Jordan. She was voted Jordan’s athlete of 2003 following a nationwide poll and has earned numerous titles. Today, she balances her studies with her training programme. ‘I wanted to have a good degree to fall back on so I’ve continued my studies’, she says. ‘I’m really looking forward to competing. I qualified for the second round at Athens, so I hope to at least achieve the same at Beijing’.

Thanks LS for the photos.  Wow, she is very pretty - and tall!  She is much taller than Prince Rashid is.  Good that he isn't imitated by her.

He's quite short like his father so it wouldn't be too much of a challenge to find a taller lady  Tongue

Rashid seems to be like Abdullah and Hassan before him, not bothered by the height of his significant other.

Here's a nice site dedicated to her.  She's very beautiful.  I wonder will she be able to compete in future games.:

I'm glad to see the King was present. I hope this means that he and his uncle are on good terms. I thought the way Prince Hassan was pushed aside was very humiliating and I would not blame him if he broke off all relations, maybe the fact that Noor is pretty much out of the picture has helped. It seems she has been banished from Jordan for good.

What an accomplished young woman, she will be a nice addition to the family. Are Queen Noor's daughters married? If not good for them for waiting until the right man comes along.

Abdullah and Hassan seem to get on well and he and Sarvath have maintained their profiles since King Hussein died. Even their children have quite important roles to play, Sumaya works quite often with Rania on educational issues and Rahma accompanied the King and Queen during their state visit to the Netherlands. Moreover Princess Badiya's wedding was attended and celebrated by Abdullah and Rania.

I think it's safe to say uncle and nephew get along well. IMO.

Raiyah is still at university and I'm not sure what Iman is doing although she lives in Amman; all four of Noor's children are based there AFAIK.

Yes, Salma did attend along with quite a few Dutch royals who are friends with Hassan and Sarvath.
