Bhutan Royal Wedding

Bhutan Royal Wedding: Bhutan’s King, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck Wedding in October: Bhutanese Member of Parliament Sangay Khandu informs in a blog post about the royal address of His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck (31), in which he declared his wedding with Jetsun Pema.

The world’s youngest monarch, in one of the world’s most remote and enchanting kingdoms, has surprised his country by announcing wedding plans. All of Bhutan is abuzz with talk of the country’s soon-to-be Queen.

Bhutan’s King, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, spoke to members of parliament for a while Friday about the progress the country was making in establishing democratic institutions. And then, came the real headline.

He says the time has come for him to marry. He says he has found a queen who, though young, is kind and warm at heart, and good in character. He says her name is Jetsun Pema.

Parliament member Sangay Khandu, was in the chamber for the announcement in the country’s capital, Thimpu. He says the King plans to hold the royal wedding in October.

“His Majesty’s announcement came as a surprise to most of us but nonetheless a very good one. Everybody’s really happy, overjoyed, and we’re all looking forward to October to formally have our Queen,” said Khandu.

Bhutan is a small, landlocked Buddhist nation tucked away in the Himalayas between India and China. It has spent much of its history in relative isolation, and is often described in fairy tale-like language by world travelers who get the rare chance to visit.

The kingdom only began allowing television broadcasting 11 years ago. Friday’s royal announcement was broadcast live. Khandu says nearly everyone in Bhutan was watching, and caught the good news.

“The excitement is really across the country, and I foresee that in the days to come we will see a lot of expression of joy and happiness in all ways possible,” he said.
