Bhutan’s Queen Jetsun Pema, the wife of King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck is the most amazing queen, ever. The country of Bhutan is blessed with a simple yet powerful queen of all times. Now, we’re sure some of you might have never heard about her as Bhutan is a place which is forbidden from much of popularity.
The secretive country ensures royal lifestyle for its kings and queens. But when we think of the words like “king” and “queen”, we get an image of power with lots of gold and authoritative personality. Little do we know is Queen Jetsun Pema sets apart a unique definition of a queen for us. Team WSL will tell you why she should be your role model-
1. She’s the Commoner-Turned-Queen
Jetsun Pema became the Dragon Queen of Bhutan in spite of her common lifestyle, after her royal wedding to the Dragon King Jigme Khesar Namgley Wangchuck. Just like Cinderella, this lady gave us a major reason to believe in real-life Cinderella moments.
2. She is a Royal Chic
Queen Jetsun Pema has often been praised by royal fans for her mesmerising beauty. She is the epitome of elegance with youthful, tasteful and modern wardrobe. The Dragon King of Bhutan is in her with her warm and kind heart and character. What a beauty!
3. She is Beauty with Brains
Before marrying the Dragon King, Jetsun’s life revolved around her studies and love for art. She started her education back then in 1998. And she went to Regent’s College, London for her college education, majoring in International Relations and Art History. Oh yes, she’s beauty with brains.
4. She Reflects Sports Talent
The Queen has an interest in sports too! In fact, she loves basketball and was the captain of the basketball team in her school days. She’s the one who was quite active in co-curriculum activities during her school days. Even today, she’s passionate about basketball and would love to play whenever she can.
5. She’s an Amazing Queen and Beautiful Mother
Jetsun is not a queen who got involved in household chores post marriage. She accompanies King Jigme at every royal decision and every royal tour. And most importantly, she’s the queen who is the UNEP Ozone Ambassador. Royal overlap aside, she is a mother of adorable Baby Jigme who was born on 5th of February, 2016.
The Queen Jetsun Pema AKA Kate Middleton of the Himalayas is the most beautiful lady who handles Bhutan with grace and celebrates life like common heritage. Kudos!
