Royal Wedding
I've always been fascinated with royalty. So this news article caught my eye.
Talk about meeting your Prince Charming and marrying him too. *Sighs*

(CNN) -- Former CNN correspondent Rym Brahimi is engaged to Jordanian King Abdullah II's half-brother, Prince Ali, the palace announced Friday.

An engagement ceremony was held Friday in Paris and the wedding is set for September 7.
Brahimi, who worked from CNN's London and Baghdad bureaus, notified CNN Friday that she is resigning. After the wedding, she will be a princess.
The Jordanian royal palace issued an announcement Friday congratulating the couple, wishing them success and happiness.
The head of a special force in command of protecting the monarch, Ali is the son of the late King Hussein from his third marriage to Queen Alia. She died in a helicopter crash in 1977.
Brahimi is of Algerian and Croatian heritage. Her father is Lakhdar Brahimi, the senior U.N. envoy to Iraq. She has covered major events including the Iraqi war, the Saudi response to the 9/11 attacks, the Kosovo war, the Hajj pilgrimage, and the bombing of the USS Cole. She is fluent in English, French, Italian and Arabic.
