(CNN) – The Jordan government has pledged aid to Syrian refugees fleeing the country’s war since 2012, at times pouring hundreds of millions of dollars in aid into a country struggling against the effects of the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II.

CNN finds out more about how the Jordanian king and his family and entourage live despite the aid that he himself leads to a nation struggling with the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II.
