Power in Amman is again clearly restricted: after the alleged conspiracy in the royal family Jordan There are Konik Abdullah II. And his half-brother, former Crown Prince Hamza bin Hussein, performed together in public again for the first time.
Other members of the royal family visited the royal cemetery on Sunday to mark the centenary of Jordan’s independence. The royal court released photos of the two of them standing in a group in front of the tomb of King Abdullah I.
Three kings who ruled the country in the Middle East in the last century are buried in the tombs – Abdullah I, Talal and his son King Hussein, the father of the current king.
Home guard after a conspiracy
Jordan’s royal palace usually appears to be very closed to the outside world. However, a good week ago, a clash within the royal family erupted when Prince Hamza was placed under house arrest for allegedly being involved in a conspiracy.
He denied the allegations and later reaffirmed his allegiance to King Abdullah II. According to the government, the prince and others were involved in attempts to “disrupt” the kingdom.
The king, who ascended the throne in 1999 after the death of his father, King Hussein, initially crowned Hamza as his father’s prince. However, in 2004, Abdullah II abolished it and gave the title to his own son, Hussein.
