Priyanka met the Queen Rania on the last day of her visit to Jordan and she said that it was a privilege and honour to meet her. Priyanka on Wednesday shared a photograph of herself along with the Queen of Jordan and said that she is a "true inspiration".

"I had the privilege and honour of meeting Her Majesty, Queen Rania of Jordan 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," Priyanka wrote alongside the image.

The "Mary Kom" actress added: "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."

Priyanka visited Jordan as a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador. She says meeting Queen Rania "further reiterated" her commitment to help children the world over.

"Because every child matters, no matter where they come from," added Priyanka. The "Baywatch" star says she is "looking forward" to meeting Queen Rania again "at the United Nations General Assembly in NYC next week which we both will be speaking at." 

At Za'atari, I'm proud to have had the opportunity to visit the home of Seba and her whole family - Mohammed, 19; Seba, 17; Haya 14; Hiba, 12; Omar, 6; Hala, 4. In spite of their circumstances, their makeshift home, and very little to call their own, we were the recipients of the full Syrian hospitality and love. Her mother, Isdihaar, a dignified and happy spirit was so open about her earlier life, and all that they do now to survive. They had a full life in Syria, with a home and everything they could ask for, and now...sitting in their sparse living room, all I got was a resolve to hold on until they could return to their home and rebuild their life. Without her husband there, she's taking care of her 6 children by working at an innovation lab, finding innovative solutions for everyday problems...like the neo-natal air conditioner created by just using a fan, ice cubes and box with holes. As I was leaving, Seba removed her bracelet and gave it to me and said it was so I'd never forget her. I will never forget her and the amazing people I've met, and it is because of them that my resolve to keep working by bringing attention to their situation has just grown stronger. Hoping that somehow we, the citizens of the world, will find it in our hearts to contribute to ease the largest humanitarian crisis since the end of World War II.

She added: "Thank you Jordan for the hospitality and I will see you again. To support the work that Unicef is doing". Priyanka was in Jordan to help children uprooted by the civil war in Syria. 

A large number of Syrians died or were forced to leave their homes due to the conflict. Since then, a number of Syrians have taken shelter in neighbouring countries like Jordan.
