King of Bhutan marries his commoner bride

PUNAKHA, Bhutan (AP) _ The beloved king of the tiny Himalayan nation of Bhutan married his commoner bride Thursday in an ancient Buddhist ceremony at the country's most sacred monastery fortress.
King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck, wearing the raven crown, came down from his golden throne in front of a huge statue of Buddha to place a smaller, silk brocade crown upon the head of his bride, Jetsun Pema. (Queen's crown pic)
Monks chanted in celebration as she took up her seat beside him as the new queen of the country. - Associated Press Via Acquire Media NewsEdge

King of Bhutan Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck (L) and future queen Jetsun Pema (R) stand together during their marriage ceremony in the main courtyard of the 17th-century fortified monastery or dzong in Punakha on October 13, 2011. Bhutan's 31-year-old king marries a student 10 years his junior on October 13 in an isolated valley high in the Himalayas where thousands of nomads and villagers have gathered to celebrate.

Long live the King and the new Queen of Bhutan!

She is utterly breathtaking in her beauty. And the robes they both wear (and his shoes!) are so stunning. According to Wikipedia, Bhutan is the only country in the world that attempts to measure "Gross National Happiness". This philosophy certainly shows in the joyous colors and patterns seen everywhere in Bhutan!

Thanks to all for the pictures, info and videos!

Queen Jetsun to me has been the most beautiful bride in 2011. She's just naturally stunning and I appreciate her natural grace - she looked a bit shy yesterday and still serene. The King of course looked handsome, too. They make a wonderful couple and I wish them all the best for their future together!
