recent royal weddings
Usually, royal weddings involve princes and princesses, not kings and queens. That was not the case in the tiny country of Bhutan. Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck became king in 2006 after his father abdicated. He didn’t get married until 2011. His then-20-year-old bride, a British-educated Bhutanese woman named Jetsun Pema, became queen right after the marriage.
