The Jordanian royal family is massive – thanks to the late King Hussein, who tied the knot four times and welcomed 12 children, including King Abdullah II. Among the late monarch’s grandchildren are twin princesses Aisha and Sara, the beautiful nieces of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania.

Being identical royals, however, is not the only thing that makes these 25-year-old princesses stand out. This dynamic duo is getting on in the world, one milestone after another.

Here’s what you need to know about them …

The 25-year-old twins have two older siblings: Princess Ayah, 32, and Prince Omar, 28. As young royals, they all grew up in Jordan’s capital where they attended a private school called Amman Baccalaureate.

Graduated with honours from the University of Westminster

Like their parents, Aisha and Sara completed their higher education abroad. They both studied at London’s University of Westminster, where Aisha took a bachelor’s degree in criminology and Sara focused on interior architecture.

Although Jordan’s royal family, also known as the Hashemites, make up a large clan, Princess Aisha and Princess Sara have seemingly created a tight bond with their relatives.

The young royals have often attended special family occasions, including the graduation of their brother Prince Omar in 2013 and the wedding of their sister Princess Ayah in 2014.

Philanthropy and patriotism seem to run in their blood. Since 2020, Aisha has been working as a research, education and outreach coordinator at the Jordanian non-governmental organisation, Generations For Peace (GFP) Institute.

According to Aisha’s bio on its website, she was drawn to GFP because of her belief in the importance of engaging youth and resolving conflict to be able to change a generation.
