On July 5th 2022, The Royal Hashemite Court announced that Princess Iman, the eldest daughter of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al-Abdullah, accepted Jameel Alexander Thermiotis‘s marriage proposal. The announcement came with an official engagement portrait of the happy couple posed in a sweet embrace, with Princess Iman’s dazzling engagement ring in view. Eight months later, the royal couple said “I do” at their wedding in Princess Iman’s home country.  

Her Royal Highness is typically quiet about her personal life, staying off social media and out of the news as much as possible. Her new husband, Jameel Alexander Thermiotis, is equally private, so we decided to do a deep dive into his background. What we found might surprise you.

Thermiotis comes from a prominent family in South America

Jameel Alexander Thermiotis was born in Caracas, Venezuela, to Alexandros Thermiotis and Corina Hernández in 1994, making him 28 years old today. He’s the eldest of three siblings, one is a girl, Alexia, and the other is a boy, Alejandros. He comes from a prominent Greek family that maintains a strong connection to their heritage with frequent trips to the Greek island of Andros.

Princess Iman’s husband attended private school while growing up in Venezuela and attended college in the United States. Thermiotis graduated in 2015 with a specialisation in Business Administration and Business from Florida International University, which set him up for his future career in finance. He spearheaded a venture capital firm called Outbound Ventures LLC after graduation and is now a managing partner at a New York City venture capital firm.

The royal family loves him already

Princess Iman and Jameel Alexander Thermiotis dated for three years before he popped the question. Her family expressed their support and warm wishes for the couple in the days following on social media. Queen Rania posted her congratulations to the couple, wishing them “a life filled with love and laughter,” followed by a post from Princess Iman’s brother, Al Hussein bin Abdullah II. He posted a photograph of the three of them together with the caption, “warmest congratulations to my dear sister Iman and to her fiancé Jameel on their engagement. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.”
