William told Kate to chop chop at Jordan’s royal wedding. While attending the royal wedding, Prince William pushed Kate Middleton to finish her talk with the new Princess of Jordan, Rajwa Al Saif.
King Abdullah’s eldest son, Crown Prince Al Hussein, married Saudi architect Rajwa Al Saif on June 1. The Prince and Princess of Wales were in attendance. The wedding reception was held at Amman, Jordan’s Zahran Palace, and featured a free concert in honor of the happy couple.
After the ceremony, William and Kate joined the queue of guests presenting formal congratulations to the happy couple. The Daily Mail published a video of the two couples together, in which Prince William can be heard talking to Princess Rajwa while Kate chats with the Crown Prince.
After William and Rajwa finished talking, the couple hugged and kissed each other. Kate was complementing Rajwa on her wedding dress as they conversed.
Standing on the sidelines, William finally joined in when he was seen muttering, “chop chop” to his wife. He appears to tell her to “keep going” and make a circular motion with his hand to end the conversation in the clip.
After a short pause during which William glanced at his wife, Kate terminated her talk with the future bride. She then joined her new husband as they greeted the other guests who had gathered to congratulate them.
Kate wore a pink maxi dress with long sleeves and silver hoop earrings to her wedding, while her husband wore a navy suit and light blue tie.
The arrival of the British royal family at the wedding was revealed by official Jordanian media just hours before the event, which caught many people off guard. Despite their differences, William and Crown Prince Hussein share something in common: they are both alumni of Britain’s Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst.
2018 during William’s trip to Jordan, the two men also spent time together. In addition to accompanying the Prince of Wales on several official trips, the Crown Prince was photographed with a buddy while watching England’s World Cup match against Panama in 2018. William and Kate are personally connected to Jordan because they took their three children there for a vacation in 2021: Prince George, then nine years old; Princess Charlotte, then eight; and Prince Louis, then five. In addition, Kate spent three years of her childhood in Jordan.
John Kerry, the United States special envoy for climate change, was in attendance at the royal wedding on June 1 alongside Jill Biden, the first lady, and her daughter, Ashley Biden. The wedding was attended by many European royals, including King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, who both also participated in King Charles III’s coronation last month.
