So the jury is out. The youngest Queen in the world is none other than the Queen of Bhutan. At 27 Queen Jetsun is the youngest reigning Queen in the world. She married Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, otherwise known as Bhutan’s “Dragon King” in 2011, when she was 21 years old. They also have the cutest royal son Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck who turned 1 earlier this year. We wrote on this back in March, here are his cute pics.
Anyways, her family has close ties to the Bhutan Royals and I guess that is the link for marriage or whatever they call it. Anyways Travel and Leisure continues this story:
According to the Washington Post, Queen Jetsun’s paternal great-grandfather was lord of the eastern province of Tashigang. Meanwhile her maternal grandfather was the half-brother of the wife of Bhutan’s second king. The King, her now husband, also dated Pema’s cousin while studying at Oxford.
Queen Jetsun is reportedly “passionate about fine arts and painting.” She first learned to love art while studying at a private boarding school in India. There, she studied English, history, economics, geography, and painting, according to her official biography. She then went on to study Psychology and Art History at Regent’s University in London.
I will leave it here as I am not necessarily a Royalist or anything, but read the full article linked at the bottom for more information.
