The King and Queen of Jordan, King Abdullah II and Queen Rania al-Abdullah attended the graduation ceremony of their son Prince Hussein in Washington DC.

The Crown Prince, who is the eldest son of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, was born in Amman on June 28, 1994 and has a degree in international history from Georgetown University.

Queen Rania, like any proud parent on their child's graduation day, took to her Facebook page to share the pictures from the Prince's graduation ceremony.
 

According to his personal website, the Crown Prince, who holds the rank of second lieutenant in the Jordan Armed Forces, completed his high school education at King's Academy in Jordan and enjoys reading, sports especially football as well as playing chess.

Queen Rania also shared her feelings about "this special day" on Twitter with a lovely picture of the two beaming parents with their son. 

The Crown Prince is not the first member of the Jordanian royal family to attend Georgetown University. In 1987, King Abdullah attended the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown.

The King and Queen of Jordan have four children together all between the ages of 21 and 11. 

According to the state media service, King Abdullah returned home soon after the graduation ceremony on Sunday.
