“For me, it sounds a bit corny, but it was love at first sight,” King Abdullah II would later tell correspondent Christiane Amanpour for a CBS “60 Minutes” profile of his wife, Queen Rania al Abdullah. During the same interview, Queen Rania recalled it was intimidating that the handsome military man was the son of one of the Middle East’s most powerful men. “But in the end, it was really boy meets girl,” she said of their attraction. The couple married in 2004.
