Abdullah of Georgetown indeed. Educated in the UK and US, born of British mom, more fluent in English in Arabic, put on the throne in a little backroom CIA-coup involving a quick secret change of the Jordanian Constitution at the Washington Embassy...the last Hashemite King is in town picking up his orders, his money, and oh yes...even his food over at the 'Singles Safeway'.preparing for his Camp David stay.
"The king and queen of Jordan may be royalty but they need to eat, too. Yesterday they were spotted at the "Social Safeway" in Georgetown stocking for their brief stay in Washington this week.
Their motorcade parked in the fire lane while King Abdullah II, Queen Rania and daughter Princess Salma carted around the center with a bevy of Secret Service everywhere. While the beautiful queen was strolling down the dairy aisle, her husband was seen loading up on candy.
The king is in town to attend several meetings with administration officials. Their majesties will end their stay with a visit to Camp David with President and Laura Bush." WP - 16 Sept 2003
