King Abdullah II in military uniform at Sandhurst

King Abdullah II of Jordan (right) strides along in full military dress at The Sovereign's Parade, held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in Sandhurst, England. The date was August 11, 2006. Though he is from Jordan, Abdullah studied at Sandhurst beginning in 1980, and then actually served a year in the Royal Hussars of the British Army. (It's not entirely unusual for foreigners to study at Sandhurst.) Hussein then later served in the Royal Jordanian Army. King Abdullah II was born in 1962, so he turned 44 the year this photo was taken.
