Anyway India has always been Bhutan's closest and for almost 5 decades, only ally. They even allowed Indian army to move through their territory during 1962 Indo-China War.
Despite China's constant wooing, Bhutan remains friendly and loyal to India..

This is the video of the King of Bhutan as Chief Guest at India's Republic Day Parade on 26th Jan 2013.

Go directly to 5:00 for the arrival of Queen of Bhutan, and welcomed by the Prime Minister.
Then at 7:30, the King with the President of India arrive.

I also attached a clip of highlights of R-Day parade for all to have an idea what happens at that parade. Its not just showing off the military might, but also the enormous cultural diversity of India.

Can anyone tell who is who in this photo?
I recognize only the King and the Queen.
Jigme Dorji is the first King's brother to marry, isn't he? If it comes for King's sisters all but the youngest are already married.

I don't know them all but there's the Dragon King and the Dragon Queen, the Queens Dowager, a princess that I can't remember the name of, and Prince Jigyel who is the Heir Presumptive.

I thought that number 3 was Prince Jigyel Ugyen, the son of Queen Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck. I could be wrong though.

They should set up an official website of the monarchy and make a "who is who"

I think you are right, it´s Prince Jigyel Ugyen Wangchuck.

Definitely, I think it would make it much easier! I don't know most of the Bhutanese royals, I only knew Prince Jigyel because he is the heir at the moment.

It might be answered somewhere, but if the King and Queen have a daughter, she will be the heir as long there is no brother?
