The smart husband managed to get the full interview of Queen Rania on Oprah digitized and onto this blog. So for those interested, who either weren’t able to see it or would like to see it again, it’s all available here. It’s about 19 minutes long. [The video is best enjoyed with a broadband connection, and could be pulled at any time.
Right cick here (save target as) for the direct download link for the file. Thus far, this hasn’t been converted into Flash, but blip.tv says their server will do it soon :0] Enjoy!
Okay, it’s back up again and this time it’s in Flash [Click to view]. It should even be capable of being podcast [gasp!]. As a flash movie the quality is not as great, so a WMV file will be loaded here for download only. And for those interested, Queen Rania did do Oprah once before, right after 9/11. This is the link to the transcript of that show.
I didn’t like the interview and I don’t think that the Queen was down to earth , there are grounds to meet the Heads of State , kings and queens .
I never so the Queen of England or the queen of Sweden nor any Queen in the world comes in the Oprah show in the studio, but it seems to me that the Queen enjoying playing the role of Super Star .
That documentary about women in Jordan was extremely disappointing! After talking about women empowerment, I expected to see women working to make ends meet. Instead, there were women in four wheel drives, luxury KGs, fancy reveiling dresses, pizza served in fancy kitchens, gyms, and a lady praying with her head covered after telling us that she and her husband dated for three years! oh, and the commercial about American cereals was something too! Who directed this?
Jareer, I’m almost 100% sure that at least Princess Nour (Prince Hamzeh’s wife) is Jordanian. She’s the grand daughter of Prince Nayef Bin Abdallah and to my knowledge her family has lived in Jordan before it even was called a country.
Do you know where all the names I mentioned were born?
No my friend. None of the names you mentioned is Jordanian, good try.
Jareer, I don’t think that’s entirely true. What about Princess Nour; Prince Hamzeh’s wife? Queen Alia? Queen Dina (was she ever called queen or just princess?). I thought they were all Jordanians.
If that’s all you got adel, then something is missing. The file should be about 80mb and it is a WMV file . If you only have the intro, I can only guess that it got cut off so that you only have the first 5-10 mb of the full 80mb file. See if you can try it again. I’m not wholly pleased with this service. They’ve promised to fast track the Flash version, but it’s still not there. If that situation continues into after another 12 hours or so, I’ll likely try another provider.
after downloading the video …it’s just oprah introducing and welcoming queen rania…but it’s not the interview itself
For your info, none of the royal family memebers since the foundation of the monarchy (starting with King Abdullah 1st, and ending with the current Abdullah)including all princes and princesses, never got married to Jordanians !
obviously the jordanian bloggosphere is very interested in this interview, since it truely represents their complete removal from Jordanian reality and Jordan’s true problems.
Peter S……. your comments are right on.
Just like Larry King, Oprah is a softball artist when it comes to interviewing people.
What is the Queens birth country? Take care.
