There’s a new royal in town and no, we aren’t talking about Meghan Markle. With Prince Harry’s engagement to Meghan Markle, the British royal family has caught the world’s attention again. And while Kate Middleton’s husband will one day take the throne, it could be some time before Prince William is a monarch. In 2011, while rest of the world was busy with focusing on the comings and goings of the British royal family, the Kingdom of Bhutan named another queen: Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen Jetsun Pema Wangchuck.
The Gyaltsuen Jetsun Pema Wangchuck.
She’s only 27 years old, making her the world’s youngest living queen. In comparison, Queen Elizabeth II is 91 years of age and has been on the British throne since 1952, making her the longest-serving queen in the world.
At the youngest age, she became a queen.
Queen Jetsun was only 21 when she initially took the throne in 2011, the year she wedded King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck of Bhutan, who has been given the great moniker of “Monster King”.
Will and Kate of The Himalayas
The royal couple has studied in England, and were once named the “Will and Kate of The Himalayas”. They not just wedded in the same year from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the ‘it’ couple is also easy on the eyes.
The couple is blessed with a baby
They had their first child, Jigme Namygyel Wangchuck, in February 2016 and, frankly, he’s currently giving Prince George a run for his money in the Royal Baby charm stakes. Click on the next page to read more.
The King loves her Queen
The king had once told reporters:“I have been waiting for quite some time to get married. But it doesn’t matter when you get married as long as it is to the right person. I am certain I am married to the right person.”
She belongs to The Royal family
According to the sources, Queen Jetsun is the little girl of a pilot. However, her family clearly has long-term links with the Royals. Her paternal great-grandfather was lord of the eastern region of Tashigang. Her maternal grandfather was the half-brother of the wife of Bhutan’s second king.
