Modern Monarch: Queen Rania of Jordan
Queen Rania says her day begins like any other mom's—getting the kids ready for school. "There's a typical mayhem in the morning of taking care of the children, making sure they're ready for school and they've had their breakfast and everything," she says. "I have some help, [but] there's some things that only a mother can do."
Once the kids are off to school, Queen Rania says she has a little time to herself. "I go into my email, check my Twitter, all that kind of thing," she says. "If I have the energy, I'll do a little bit of exercise."
When the king and queen need a night to unwind, Queen Rania says their favorite thing to do is stay in for a movie night. "Just sitting around eating popcorn," she says. "The Hurt Locker was great. The Hurt Locker was filmed in Jordan, actually."
