Meghan Markle’s New Competition, The World’s Youngest And Favorite Royal

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.
