The Duchess of Cornwall cut an elegant figure in a mint green gown last night as she and Prince Charles joined Queen Rania for a private dinner at the Al Husseiniya Palace.
Camilla, 74, jetted out to Jordan on Sunday with the Prince of Wales, 72, the couple’s first overseas engagement since Covid clipped the royals’ wings in March 2020.
The royal was chic in a pastel green dress for the occasion, which featured sequin detailing across the bodice and skirt.
Meanwhile Queen Rania was stunning in a cream gown with gold embellishments across the neckline and waist.

The Duchess was glamorous in the stunning green dress for the outing, and was in high spirits as she arrived at the event.
Camilla’s blonde bob was styled in an impeccable blow-dry, and she sported a dash of blush for a healthy glow.
Meanwhile she carried a cream pashmina and a silver clutch bag in one hand as she arrived at the palace.
The royal added a touch more glamour to her outfit with a pair of silver drop earrings and a glittering silver necklace.
Prince Charles opted for a dark suit for the occasion, donning a baby pink tie and pocket square
Meanwhile Queen Rania looked radiant in a cream dress, worn with a gold belt and matching geometric earrings.
The Duchess is facing a packed schedule during their mini Middle Eastern tour which will see them take in two countries in just four days – after a weekend representing the Queen to mark Remembrance Sunday.
It comes after a royal expert claimed the Duchess is ‘dreading’ the spotlight that will be thrown onto her when Prince Charles becomes King.
Penny Junor has said Camilla will face a ‘very difficult time’ when the Prince of Wales ascends to the throne.

Speaking to The Telegraph, the royal expert said: ‘She is a normal woman who, because of her relationship with Charles, has found herself in an abnormal situation.
‘I don’t think titles do it for her, and the prospect of being Queen or Princess Consort, the fuss there will be at the time, the comparisons to Diana, it will be a very difficult time for her.’
Meanwhile she predicted Camilla would be Queen rather than Princess Consort, because ‘Charles is so proud’ and ‘grateful’ of her.
The guard of honour, red carpet and time spent with Jordan’s king and queen is likely to serve as a reminder that public life – and the media glare – will only ramp up further when Charles takes the throne.

One former courtier explained that because the Duchess was 57-years-old when she became a member of the Royal Family, she has spent the vast majority of her life living outside The Firm.
Explaining her unique position, the insider continued: ‘She understands how strange the world of the Royal Family can be, and how the public sees that, and knows that at times her husband, the Prince of Wales, can’t see that.’
They said the Duchess has ‘none of the apparatus’ of Royal life at her house in Wiltshire and engages in a ‘fairly normal’ existence, adding: ‘Her children will tell her how the outside world views things the Royal Family are doing.
‘It means she is better able than almost anyone else to persuade certain members of the Royal Family of a certain point of view that they might not see otherwise.’
Earlier in the day, the Duchess was treated to an electrifying tour of Amman – hosted by Queen Rania driving a top of the range Tesla in stiletto heels.

Camilla accompanied the Queen for the 30 minute journey in the fully electric £90,000 Model X P90d, cruising across the capital city with a police escort to visit a children’s centre set up in her name.
Meanwhile the Prince of Wales is flying ‘five or six dozen bottles’ of Holy water taken from the River Jordan back to the UK for royal baptisms – which could include that of Lilibet, the grand-daughter he has never met.
The heir to the throne and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall were yesterday afforded the honour of dipping their fingers in the water where Jesus was baptised as they embarked on a whirlwind visit of the Middle East.
Now it can be revealed that Charles will be taking home with him on the return flight later this week a consignment of vials full of water to be used for future royal christenings.
