Queen Rania catches up with her former school teacher

Friday August 20, 2010

When Queen Rania visited Scotland for the spectacular Edinburgh Tattoo, she used the occasion to catch up with someone who had a formative role in her childhood.

The royal – an alumnus of Kuwait's New English School – had a reunion with her old school teacher.

"All of us have fond memories of a favourite teacher. Mine happens to be Scottish.

So excited to be seeing him soon!" tweeted the 39-year-old before their meeting.

Later Rania – who is now one of the world's most influential women – confirmed that her mentor was as inspirational as ever.

"Mr Dickson was just as I remember: passionate about what he does, enthusiastic, & full of life. I feel so indebted to him".
