For something really different, how about the King of Bhutan? Thirty-year-old Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck has been king of Bhutan for the past two years. Despite the remote location of his kingdom, King Jigme is exceptionally well-travelled - he attended college in Massachusetts before graduating from Oxford's Magdalen College. Now back in Bhutan, during his short reign he's already been credited with democratising his country, while his good looks and popularity have led to him becoming the 'face' of Bhutan in several tourism campaigns.
