The name of the Bhutan queen is Jetsun Pema.
On 20 May 2011, during the opening of the Parliament's seventh session, King Jigme Khesar announced that he would marry Jetsun Pema in October 2011.Khesar has also commented:

"Jetsun Pema is a kind-hearted girl who is very supportive and whom I can trust. I cannot say how she might appear to the people, but to me, she is the one."
King Jigme Khesar and Jetsun Pema married on 13 October 2011, at Punakha Dzong.

The Queen's interests include fine arts, painting and basketball. She captained her school team in basketball games and maintains that interest even now. Her Majesty's other diversions during her school days included participation in school bands and dance programmes. Besides Dzongkha, the national language of Bhutan, she is fluent in English and Hindi.

The Bhutanese don't call their King's wife Jetsun Pema as queen. Both the King and his wife Jetsun Pama don't call Jetsun Pema as queen. The royal Bhutanese family don't call Jetsun Pema as queen. So, why do we call Jetsun Pema as the queen of Bhutan? Instead of pleasing Bhutan by calling Jetsun Pema as queen of Bhutan, it may annoy them. The Queen of Britain don't call her husband as the King. No one calls the husband of the Queen of Great Britain as king. Same like this the wife of the King of Bhutan is not called queen.
