Priyanka Chopra, who is currently in Jordan as a Unicef ambassador, met Queen Rania on Wednesday and posted a picture from their meeting on Twitter. The actor felt privileged upon meeting the queen.

“I had the privilege & honor of meeting Her Majesty, @QueenRania of Jordon... #MissionForChildren #PCInJordan,” she captioned the photo on Twitter.

Priyanka also shared the picture on Instagram with a longer caption, “I had the privilege and honor of meeting Her Majesty, @queenrania of Jordon again...this time in Amman. It is amazing to see the full extent of support that the Kingdom of Jordan has provided during the ongoing Syrian refugee crises. The numbers are staggering and overwhelming but the good work continues day after day.

“Queen Rania is a true inspiration. Her tireless efforts to help those in need comes straight from the heart and has always been consistent.. as a UNICEF Eminent Advocate for Children, she leads by example as is so evident by the countless programmes for children that she is involved in. She does this all with such grace and calm. The meeting and our discussions, further reiterated my commitment to to help children the world over... because every child matters, no matter where they come from.

I’m looking forward to meeting her again at the United Nations General Assembly in NYC next week which we both will be speaking at.

Thank you Jordan for the hospitality and I will see you again... To support the work that @unicef is doing, please log on to #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted,” she wrote.

The queen is known for her work as an advocate for education and youth and community empowerment. Priyanka spent some quality time with the children on her maiden visit to a Syrian refugee camp there.

She also shared a video on Tuesday from Jordan, giving a shout out to her Bollywood colleagues Katrina Kaif and Shah Rukh Khan.

She shared a video of a teenager named Wafaa on Instagram, where the girl talked about her love for Katrina Kaif.

Priyanka dedicated the post to the Jagga Jasoos actor on behalf of Wafaa, writing, “This is a special shout out to one of Indias biggest movie stars. @katrinakaif this video is just for you, all the way from Za’atari Refugee camp in Jordan.”

Priyanka said she did not expect Bollywood stars and their films would give people “a sense of hope, relief and escape in such dire circumstances”.

“I was especially told to give messages of love to these massive Indian film superstars, who are favourites at Za’atari... Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor and Anushka Sharma... a big shoutout to you all and Hindi movies from these amazing kids who are huge fans.

Priyanka, who is the Unicef global goodwill ambassador, has been documenting her visit to Amman, which hosts 1,80,000 Syrian refugees, on social media.
