Brahimi Finds Her Prince, Leaves Her CNN Job

Cable News Network reporter Reem Brahimi resigned Friday, the same day her engagement to Jordan's Prince Ali was announced by that country’s royal family, AP reported.

The wedding is set for Sept. 7, according to official news agency Petra.

Ali, 29, is King Abdullah II's half brother. He heads a special force that protects the monarch. He is the son of the late King Hussein from his marriage to Queen Alia, who died in a helicopter crash in 1977, according to AP.

Brahimi is the daughter of United Nations envoy to Iraq Lakhdar Brahimi.

The engagement ceremony took place in Paris in the presence of Abdullah, Petra said.
