King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck of Bhutan & Jetsun Pema: 13-15 October 2011



2011 Royal Wedding Symbol


Bhutan's "King Charming" to wed commoner later this year

– Fri May 20, 11:12 am ET
THIMPHU, Bhutan (Reuters) – The young and dashing Bhutanese king on Friday announced his engagement to a commoner, sending his adoring subjects into rhapsody at the prospect of a grand wedding later this year in the last of the Himalayan kingdoms.

King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, termed "Prince Charming" for his Elvis Presley looks, smiled as he named his bride, a 21-year-old student at London's Regents College, during his speech opening parliament.


"Her name is Jetsun Pema. While she is young, she is warm and kind in heart and character," the 31-year-old Oxford-educated monarch told the gathered lawmakers. "I have decided that the wedding shall be later this year."

Very down-to-earth. It´s almost scary

Since he came into power, the new monarch - known as the Dragon King - has striven to continue the elder Jigme's philosophy of promoting what he once referred to as 'Gross National Happiness'.

"Destiny has put me here. I will protect you as a parent, care for you as a brother and serve you as a son," he promised as he was crowned.


"I shall give you everything and keep nothing. This is how I shall serve you as king."

I like him. I don´t know much about Jigma, but from the photos she seems like a confident woman

Thanks Kasumi!

Quote:
Sharing his idea of a queen, His Majesty said that many will have their own idea of what a Queen should be like – that she should be uniquely beautiful, intelligent and graceful. “I cannot say how she might appear to the people.” And after a brief pause he added, “But to me, she is the one,” His Majesty said, which generated some hesitant laughter in the otherwise formal and sombre parliament hall.



No, no lucien. It´s balm for the sould to hear this from a head of a state

The King is modest so a big fat wedding is not his taste I guess.
Understandable

Congratulations to the happy couple! I don't know much about the king but he seems to be an interesting person, so I will follow him more from now on. Jetsun looks stunning!

Didn't some palace sources state that she was NOT a commoner? I remember I read this somewhere in The Royal Forums, maybe in the engagement thread...

You're correct. Her full name is Ashi Jetsun Pema, where Ashi means Princess. It was in the Bhutanese Royal thread.

But as someone else has stated, I cannot wait to see an official picture of their wedding just to see their traditional costume. Bhutan are relatively new to TV and the Internet, so I suspect when the King's father married the four sisters, there were no photos issued.

AFP: Bhutan counts down to royal wedding
The main wedding ceremony takes place on Thursday in a stunning 17th-century fortress surrounded by mountains and built at the confluence of two fast-running rivers in the ancient capital Punakha.
The newlyweds appear in public for the first time on Saturday at a sports stadium in the sleepy present-day capital Thimphu, where thousands of Bhutanese are expected to turn out in colourful national dress.
The announcement of the nuptials in May broke the hearts of the king's many admirers -- he was once mobbed on a trip to Thailand by weeping teenagers -- but it has brought joy to his people, who idolise the royal family.

No foreign guests. What a pity!
To keep the ceremony simple, traditional and unostentatious, members of any other royal family or other head of states will not be present.
