Passionate about fine arts, painting and basketball, Jetsun was captain of the basketball team during the school years. The two meet when he has already been king for two years. Despite his young age – he was born in 1980 – his father left him the throne of a nation that has recently opened up to modernity. Jetsun captures him with that perfect face of his , the small body , i kind ways .

The two begin a secret relationship, but she asks for time: she wants to fly to London to study International Relations, Psychology and Art History at Regent's College.

The king describes his wife as follows: «He is a wonderful and intelligent human being. We share one big thing in common: love and passion for art “. Then she asks permission to kiss her in public. For love, King Jigme makes another gesture: although the law of Bhutan allows polygamy, he solemnly swears that he wants to give up the right to take other wives. “I chose her and you only” .

Today they are parents of two children : i the firstborn , Prince Dragon Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck who is almost four years old and is the heir to the throne. And the latest addition, another male , born last April whose name is still top secret.
