There’s a new royal wedding on the horizon: Princess Iman of Jordan is getting married! Princess Iman, the eldest daughter of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al-Abdullah, is set to marry Jameel Alexander Thermiotis. Thermiotis was born in Caracas, Venezuela to a Greek family, and now works in New York City as a managing partner at a venture capital firm.
“The Royal Hashemite Court extends its sincere congratulations to Her Royal Highness Princess Iman and Mr. Thermiotis on this occasion and wishes them a lifetime of happiness,” the palace said in a statement announcing the engagement.
The news was released with a portrait of the couple (above), where Iman is already leaning into bridal whites: She wears a lovely white pleated dress and poses with her sparkling engagement ring.
“Congratulations my dearest Iman; your smile has always been a gift of love that I’ve cherished since the day you were born. I wish you and Jameel a life filled with love and laughter!” Queen Rania wrote on Instagram, sharing the official portrait.
Princess Iman, 25, and Thermiotis, 28, will tie the knot on Sunday, March 12, and it’s sure to be a glamorous affair. Queen Rania wrote on Instagram, “The first time I held my baby girl, I knew my life would never be the same. In a week, she will be a bride. My precious Iman, I am so happy for you and so proud of everything that you are.” Further details of their wedding—including where it will take place—have yet to be announced.
