The independence of Jordan came as a result of the “London Treaty” signed by His Majesty the late King Abdullah I and the British Government.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no nation-wide celebrations were planned. The Royal Court plans a celebration that will “include measures to safeguard public health, with a limited number of invitees and shorter segments,” according to a Royal Court statement.

The Royal Protocol’s statement on Tuesday’s event announced during the ceremony, “a group of Jordanians who have contributed over the past 100 years to building and advancing Jordanian institutions in various sectors will be honored.

In addition, more Jordanians will be honored on several upcoming national occasion throughout the year, in recognition of their efforts, achievements, and sacrifices.”

On the occasion His Majesty King Abdullah and HRH Crown Prince Hussein have received cables from leaders of Arab, Muslim, and friendly countries on the occasion, as well as from senior officials and officers, and representatives of civil society organizations.
