is it awkward for a country to had a young queen?

Why would you think that?

Awkward in what way exactly? I'd have thought having young blood on the Throne was an advantage, not a disadvantage. The fact that Queen Elizabeth II has been Queen for so long has given the country stability. Prince Charles may not see it quite like that - waiting, and waiting, but the sad part of being an heir is he/she has to suffer loss first.

Elizabeth II was in her mid 20s
Victoria was 18
Wilhelmina was 10
Their countries thrived while these queens were in their youth

Well the job can't be that hard since it seems that it is possible for anyone to do it, provided they are born at the right place and the right time.

It was not awkward for the UK to be headed by a young monarch, who was almost 26 years old when she ascended the throne. Elizabeth had been preparing for this role as soon as she knew that she was an heir. She had studied the constitution and the monarch's role from Henry Marten, Vice-Provost of Eton College; Elizabeth also learned from her father, George VI, who talked with her about the job, keeping her informed on what was going on, how to do one's best as a leader.
Elizabeth was far from the youngest monarch. Richard II, Edward V, Henry VI, Edward VI were all much younger, some children, another teen-aged, than the young adult Elizabeth II.

Probably not since the "Virgin Queen Elizabeth" was in her 20s when she began reigning.

I can't think of any reason why that might be awkward...for a country...
