Royal Profile: Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah of Jordan

Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah of Jordan is the eldest son of King Abdullah II of Jordan and his wife, Queen Rania and was born 28 June 1994, in Aman, Jordan. He has two younger brothers and a younger sister{Source}.

In 2007, he was enrolled at the King's Academy, completing his secondary studies in 2012. He is presently studying political science at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service{Source}.

The young Crown Prince also holds the rank of first lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces{Source}. Over the last few years, he has accompanied his father on several military missions.

During his childhood years, he spent most of his time doing just that-being a kid. As he grew older, he began to make appearances on his father's behalf. His first official engagement took place in June 2010, when he stood a representative for his father during the celebrations of the anniversary of the Arab Revolt and the Armed Forces Day. Since then, he has served a regent during his father's absence in Jordan, and was sworn in officially to take on the role on 21 April 2012{Source}.

In his free time, the Crown Prince enjoys reading, sports (especially football), and he shares his father and grandfather's passion for motorcycles{Source}.
