King Mohammed VI of Morocco and Princess Lalla Salma with son Moulay Hassan

01/20/2008 at 06:41 AM ET

King Mohammed VI of Morocco, 44, his wife Princess Lalla Salma, 29, and their son Crown Prince Moulay Hassan, 4 ½, welcomed King Abdullah II, 45, and Queen Rania of Jordan, 37, on an official visit to Morocco. Mohammed VI and Lalla Salma also have daughter, Princess Lalla Khadija, 11 months. The prince and princess are the first children of the Moroccan royal family whom the media are allowed to photograph.

Princess Lalla Salma and Queen Rania are both campaigners for child welfare causes. Both women have an unusually high profile in their countries, as Queen Rania is a spokesperson for women’s rights in the Arabic world and Lalla Salma was the first female member of the Moroccan royal family to be publicly acknowledged and given a royal title.

Princess Salma is so pretty! i haven’t seen her daughter Khadija yet, but i think the crown prince Moulay Hassan, resembles his dad.

21st century is not the era of powerful monarchies. They’re okay as symbolic figure-heads as in UK.
