“As King, it is now time for me to marry. After much thought I have decided that the wedding shall be later this year.
Now, many will have their own idea of what a Queen should be like – that she should be uniquely beautiful, intelligent and graceful. I think with experience and time, one can grow into a dynamic person in any walk of life with the right effort. For the Queen, what is most important is that at all times, as an individual she must be a good human being, and as Queen, she must be unwavering in her commitment to serve the People and Country.
As my queen, I have found such a person and her name is Jetsun Pema. While she is young, she is warm and kind in heart and character. These qualities together with the wisdom that will come with age and experience will make her a great servant to the nation.
This union does not mean that I am starting my own family. From the very day I received the Dhar Ngay-Nga from the sacred Machhen, the people of the 20 Dzongkhags became my family. Such is the duty and privilege of all Kings of Bhutan. It is through this union, that I shall have a Queen who will support, and work with me, as I serve the People and Country.”
– His Majesty’s Address to the Parliament, 20 May, 2011.
This October, we celebrate five luminous years since the Royal Wedding. The year 2011 was special, as the people of Bhutan were introduced to Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen, whom the Bhutanese people have grown to love and admire. This year is special because we have been introduced to His Royal Highness The Gyalsey, and the happiness in our corner of the world has brightened. We celebrate these precious joys with the October calendar, featuring a beautiful photograph of Their Majesties with HRH The Gyalsey at the Lingkana Palace. We wish Their Majesties, our beloved King and Queen, a happy Royal Wedding Anniversary.
It has been a delight and our pleasure to release free, downloadable monthly calendars featuring Their Majesties and His Royal Highness The Gyalsey, with Gregorian calendar dates, Bhutanese Lunar calendar dates, and public holidays in Bhutan, for your laptop, computer, smartphone, or notepad wallpapers. Thank you for your overwhelming response, and enjoy!
