The el­dest child of Jordan’s King Ab­dul­lah II (56) and Queen Ra­nia (48) doesn’t just have his good looks and breed­ing to rec­om­mend him. Hussein (24) is a lieu­tenant in the army and grad­u­ate of Amer­ica’s Ge­orge­town Univer­sity and chaired a meet­ing of the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil at the United Na­tions in 2015 – the youngest per­son to do so. But it’s not all work for the king-in­wait­ing. Hussein is some­thing of an adren­a­line junkie. His hob­bies in­clude mo­tor­bik­ing, rock climb­ing and sky­div­ing. He grad­u­ated from the Royal Mil­i­tary Academy Sand­hurst in Eng­land in 2017 – like Britain’s princes Wil­liam and Harry – and as a trained pi­lot re­cently co-pi­loted a jour­ney over the Dead Sea with Red Bull. To top it all he loves his fam­ily and of­ten posts mes­sages to his mom and sib­lings, princesses Iman (22) and Salma (18) and Prince Hashem (13), on In­sta­gram.
