Jetsun Pema, 27, is the world’s youngest living queen.

She first took the throne at the age of 21 in 2011, when she married 31-year-old King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck of Bhutan.

The landlocked Southern Asian nation, located on the eastern edge of the Himalayas, covers an area of about 38,394 square km, and has a population of 811,597.

The couple, who have a 22-month-old son, The Gyalsey or “Prince”, have both previously studied in England, share a love of art, and were once dubbed the “Will and Kate of The Himalayas”.

The king once admitted to local reporters: “I have been waiting for quite some time to get married.”

So who is the woman by his side? Let’s take a closer look:

Queen Jetsun Pema, 27, the youngest living queen.

She became queen of the kingdom of Bhutan in October 2011, aged 21, when she married King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck of Bhutan, who is also known as the ‘Dragon King’.

Before taking the throne, the queen attended Regent’s University in London, where she studied international relations, psychology, and art history. The couple apparently share a love of art.

The popular king, also a young monarch, studied at Britain’s Oxford University.

More than 50,000 Bhutanese citizens attended the final day of the wedding celebrations at Changlimithang Stadium in the capital, Thimphu.

Their union has been described as a ‘love marriage’, with Pema portrayed as a ‘commoner’ by the secretariat.

The Washington Post reported that “in one version of events, the two met at a picnic when she was seven and he was 17; she reportedly came up to him and gave him a hug.”

Queen Jetsun Pema’s family apparently has long-term links with the royals.

She is the daughter of a pilot, but her paternal great-grandfather was lord of the eastern province of Tashigang, and her maternal grandfather was the half-brother of the wife of Bhutan’s second king, according to The Washington Post.

She’s known for her charity work for organisations, such as the Bhutan Red Cross Society, Ability Bhutan Society, and Bhutan Kidney Association.

Despite her royal duties, she appears to be a hands-on mother.

She gave birth to the royal couple’s first child, a son named Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck, in February 2016.

‘I have been waiting for quite some time to get married,’ the king once told reporters.

The king, who also appears to be an involved father, added: “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 is a wonderful human being, intelligent,’ the king told reporters. ‘She and I share one big thing in common: a love and passion for art.’

In April 2016, the king and queen welcomed Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on a royal visit to Bhutan.

The Bhutanese royals were once nicknamed “the Will and Kate of the Himalayas”.

The king and queen of Bhutan most recently visited New Delhi, India, in October.

The royal couple’s son, Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck, then aged 20 months, reportedly melted hearts. It’s not hard to see why.
