Queen Alia was the most popular and well loved by the Jordanian public. When she died in the helicopter crash, the public turned out in the thousands in grief. I remember her funeral was shown on our US news reports and the public turnout was bigger than Diana's.
Queen Noor was the second most popular. I once read an interview in Town and Country that Noor gave shortly after her marriage and she acknowledged what she was facing after the death of Alia and the challenges it meant, but she would do her best for the Jordanian people. Lisa (Noor) did meet the King when she was working for Alia Airlines, but the King and her father George Halaby were friends...her father was CEO of PanAm Airlines.
