Bhutan Bachelor Crowned Youngest Reigning Monarch

At 28-years-old, His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuc is the world's youngest ruling monarch. The Oxford-educated, and single, Bhutanese king was crowned last Thursday. This weekend Bhutan wrapped up three days of celebration, which included a cap-snatching contest, pillow-fighting competitions, and archery demonstrations.

Bhutan, which is isolated in the Himalayas right between China and India, just got Internet and television nine years ago, and held its first elections last March. Societal changes never seen before in Bhutan, such as crime, caused some citizens to lament the technology. Perhaps the young king, who helped bring satellite TV to the small country when he was merely a prince, will help ease the constitutional monarch's transition into the modern era.
