The idea of commoners marrying into royalty might have been a frowned-upon taboo back in the day, but thanks to the likes of Antony Armstrong-Jones, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, it’s become pretty normalised to many monarchies now. And British royals aren’t the only ones taking commoners as spouses – so are members of the Malaysian royal family . So just who charmed their way into Malaysian royal hearts with their strong characters and dashing good looks? Meghan and Harry’s Oprah tell-all: 6 burning questions we want asking Juliana Evans British-Malaysian Juliana Evans may not have been born royal, but she is no stranger to the limelight. The doe-eyed beauty, who is married to Selangor state’s Tengku Shariffuddin Shah Tengku Sulaiman Shah, is a famous actress, model and businesswoman. These days, Evans splits her time evenly between royal duties, mothering her baby daughter Tengku Kamaliah, appearing on TV and commandeering her jewellery brand Jevans Jewelry.

Aubry Rahim Mennesson It’s probably difficult to keep up with Dato’ Setia Aubry Rahim Mennesson when it comes to fitness. After all, the Frenchman is an avid cyclist and marathoner, and his native country is home to the world’s biggest cycling competition. But his happy marriage to Selangor’s Tengku Zatashah Idris Shah must be a match made in heaven since the princess is no fitness rookie herself. When they aren’t doing business together, the couple is working out together; they are often spotted jogging side by side around Kuala Lumpur.
