“Nowadays, a lot of people have their own ideas about what the Queen should be like - she should be uniquely beautiful, intelligent and graceful. I think with experience and time, a person can grow into a dynamic person in any situation. All walks of life through the right efforts. The most important thing for the Queen is that whenever, as a person, she must be a good person, and as a Queen, she must be unwavering in her commitment to serving her people and country. As The Queen of I have found such a person, her name is Jetsun Pema. Although she is young, her heart and character are warm and kind. These qualities, combined with the wisdom that comes with age and experience, will make her a great servant of the country."

The couple got married on October 13, 2011, in Punakha Dzong. The royal wedding was first held in Punakha, followed by public celebrations in Thimphu and Paro. At the ceremony, the king conferred upon her the Druk Gyaquan crown, officially proclaiming her the Queen of the Kingdom of Bhutan.

The wedding is held in the traditional way, with the "Blessing of the Patronus". Although Bhutan allows polygamy, the king said he would never marry another woman and Jetsun Pema would be his only future wife.
