28/6/2015: Crown Prince Hussein turns 21 today. His Royal Highness is the eldest son of King Abdullah II ibn Al Hussein and Queen Rania Al Abdullah. He was born in Amman on 28 June 1994, and was named Crown Prince, by Royal Decree, in July 2009.
The Crown Prince graduated high school in 2012, from King’s Academy - a boarding school in Jordan modeled after Deerfield Academy - and is currently majoring in international history, School of Foreign Services at Georgetown University, Washington DC.
On 23 April 2015, Prince Al Hussein became the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council meeting, leading an open debate on how youth can combat violent extremism and its “poisonous ideology”. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he is “not yet 21-years-old, but he is already a leader in the 21st century.”
Like his father, King Abdullah II, and his grandfather and namesake, the late King Hussein, Crown Prince Al Hussein is a peacemaker in the making. Speaking via video at the Round Square International Conference at his alma mater last year, the young Prince urged 600 students from around the globe to “remember those in this region and others around the world for whom conflict is a daily reality and peace a distant hope.”
Despite a demanding academic schedule, Prince Hussein has served as Regent in the Kingdom on several occasions, has accompanied His Majesty on working trips to the United States, South Korea, Kazakhstan and several GCC countries, and was in Jordan to receive Pope Francis alongside his father in May of last year.
The Crown Prince Foundation is being set up and will focus on youth initiatives in Jordan including “Haqiq,” Achieve in English, a youth volunteerism program the Prince founded in 2013. Last year, the Crown Prince also launched the “Hearing Without Borders” program, with a vision to make Jordan free from hearing disabilities and help deaf children across the Kingdom. To date, the program has helped around 500 children with hearing disabilities. The Crown Prince’s initiatives also include “Qusai” aimed at training and certifying sports therapists.
The Crown Prince holds the rank of second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Force and has participated in several military training courses. He has an active Instagram account (@alhusseinjo), and he enjoys a variety of sports, including football and hiking.
The Royal Court also wishes the prince a happy birthday on Instagram
