Jordan’s Princess Iman got married last month to international fanfare. Her royal wedding not only was a welcome break from the hot mess of the British royal family, but also inspired us to cover her great-grandfather, King Talal. We chat about the history of Jordan, his one year on the throne, and whether his mental illness was real or an invention of his political enemies. Our search for answers takes us from post-Word War Britain to 1950s Switzerland to the modern coronavirus pandemic.
Plus: Prince Harry is a Maxinista. Is Camilla here for the right reasons? Riley’s review of the song Stefanie’s high school boyfriend wrote about her. Why was Matt Lauer ALWAYS at Easter Island?
