10. King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck of Bhutan
When the Dragon King of Bhutan (his official title) gets married, it’s not personal – it’s an event for the entire nation. A three day holiday where banks, schools, and workplaces were closed was declared in honor of the marriage. To the public, the royal couple provided an indulgent buffet lunch of traditional foods, along with performances of song and dance. Schoolchildren and local villagers came out in droves to congratulate the new couple as they passed through the streets of Thimpu.
