Sometimes, it is smart just to float. What does this have to do with QR and QN? I think they have both endured a lot and enjoyed many great things as well. But the sense I get from both is one of great similarities: Each gets up ready to face whatever comes that day; just trying to do their best.
Now there's a topic--similarities: Both are highly disciplined, smart, funny, pragmatic women who place great priority on family.

Abdullah has always been ruled out of contention for the throne because of persistent doubts about whether his mother ever converted to Islam.
The king's enduring intimacy with Princess Muna has been a source of friction in his relationship with his present wife, Queen Noor, a Muslim convert who has pressed for her eldest son, Hamzah, to succeed King Hussein.
Though Queen Noor attended the wedding of Abdullah and Rania Yassin in Juneshe was kept out of the official photographs. King Hussein was pictured with the happy couple and his ex-wife Princess Muna. Abdullah, who turns 37 tomorrow, enrolled at Sandhurst military academy when he was 18 - like his father - and went on to study international politics for a year at Oxford University - like his deposed uncle Hassan.
