Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Sunday appeared with former Crown Prince Hamzah bin Al-Hussein for the first time since a palace feud last week.
A statement by the Royal Court said a number of the royal family members, including Prince Hamzah and Crown Prince Hussein, joined the king in visiting the graves of Jordan’s founders King Abdullah I and King Talal in Amman to mark the centenary anniversary of Jordan’s establishment on April 11, 1921.
Prince Hamzah was seen for the first time since being placed under a form of house arrest amid accusations that he was involved in a plot to destabilise the kingdom.
King Abdullah said in a televised statement that the rift with his half-brother was over and that Prince Hamzah was under his care.
Last week, authorities announced that “preliminary investigations” showed Prince Hamzah’s involvement with “foreign parties” in “attempts to destabilize the security of the country” and “mobilizing citizens against the state.”
Abdullah and Hamzah are both sons of the late King Hussein, who ruled for almost half a century until his death in 1999.
