Jordan’s King Abdullah II discusses bombing probe

I am sure not many people know of him but he was the grandfather of the present King Abdullah II of Jordan.

Colonel Gardiner was born 12 December 1914 and died 1 December 2010, aged 95.

He lived with his daughter Princess Muna in Amman but was born in Norfolk, England.

He married Doris Sutton in 1938 and she died in 1994.

His daughter Antoinette Gardiner became Princess Muna when she married King Hussein, the late king of Jordan.

They married in 1961 and had four children. King Abdullah, Prince Faisal, and Princesses Zein and Aisha. They divorced in 1972.

Apparently, Colonel Gardiner died in his sleep just before his 96th birthday. King Abdullah always loved his grandfather.
