Princess Rajwa wore a custom Elie Saab gown at her wedding to Crown Prince Hussein – and a tiara containing a hidden message of gratitude.

The striking white dress featured a flower print on its full skirt and a wrap effect on the bodice, which the princess paired with a pair of white flat shoes and the sparkling headpiece at the Jordanian royal marriage on Thursday.

The tiara featured stylised Arabic calligraphy on the side, reading: “Rajwatum min Allah” which translates to "A prayer answered by God” and is probably a reference to a post Queen Rania put up during the couple's engagement last August.

The phrase had previously been used by Queen Rania in the caption of an Instagram post, where she wrote: "My prayer to God, like every mother, was for you to find someone to love, and so you found Rajwa."

The headpiece is also reminiscent of one worn by her mother-in-law Queen Rania during the wedding banquet. Known as the Arabic Script tiara, the piece was reportedly a gift from her husband King Abdullah II and created by Yan Sicard of French jewellery brand Fred in 2005.

It has stylised scrolls that incorporate the prayer “Allah is Great” on the side and is made up of 1,300 pear-shaped diamonds and set in white gold.

Tiaras were a popular choice during the occasion, especially among fellow royalty.

Catherine, Princess of Wales wore one during the royal wedding banquet. She paired the Queen Mary's Lover's Knot tiara with a sparkling pink gown by Jenny Packham and Greville Chandelier earrings.

Princess Beatrice also sported a tiara. Wearing a champagne satin gown with an embellished bodice by Reem Acra, she arrived at the banquet with the York Diamond tiara. It is the same one her mother Sarah, Duchess of York, wore on her wedding day to Prince Andrew in 1986.

Queen Sofia of Spain wore the Niarchos Ruby tiara, while Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, wore the Dutch Laurel Wreath tiara. Queen Maxima of the Netherlands wore a smaller version of the Stuart tiara, while her daughter Catharina-Amalia, Princess of Orange, donned the Ruby Peacock tiara for the event.
