“Everyone needs a muse to act as a catalyst for strength to move forward in life, and that has been the focus, to keep sharing the ‘light’ through a series of women that embody grace and power for change in the world,” he said in a statement.
“The official images of Queen Rania have truly come at a perfect time, as she also symbolizes this source of inspiration and power.”
