I found this link giving some information about the customs when a baby is born in Bhutan:

A Way to Bhutan | Your Travel Specialists In Bhutan

It may well be a little different for royal babies - and of course, the information does not say how long after a child is born it's name is given or announced!

Besides a photo with his face, I'd love to see a generational photo. Besides his father, the king's grandmother is alive as well. Maybe its too western of a custom but would love to see the baby with his dad, grandfather and great-grandmother.

You should not feel bad. Bhutan is a small and until recently, very isolated country. I had to do more than a simple search to figure out what it meant - and even then I was not sure. Gyalsy is indeed used as a first name for some. It's not at all like Western culture, unless you recall that Saint Days once substituted for Birth Days. Not the same, but similar, sort of. And nice to learn about this - thanks to all for the links.

Finally we see his face, he is so cute and has his mother lips!

It's been only two weeks and we've got quite a large collection of his pictures. I'm sure we, royal watchers, will get the privilege to see the prince grow. At this rate they'll comemorate the prince's 1 month, 6 month old and 1 year old with pictures.

I'm assuming it means Crown Prince. In Bhutanese, Gyaltsuen is Queen, and Gyalpo is King.

I'm glad that we get to see the Gyasley's face at last, and what a beautiful little face it is. I wonder when we will get to find out his given name. What religion is the Bhutanese RF? I'm asking because I wonder if the Gyasley will have some kind of naming ceremony.

They are Budhist.

If they are similar to Tibetan traditions, I cant find specifically on Bhutan, the baby's name is announced at the end of the celebrations for the birth which can last several weeks.

This made me laugh, but you're right. He is a handsome little guy and his Mom & Dad look completely besotted w/their little Prince. Love the one of the King holding him up and nuzzling his little boy. So sweet!!

21 February 2016, Lingkana Palace:
For the Bhutanese, it is considered the greatest honour to be able to serve our Kings. This group of Royal Courtiers, retired senior government officials, senior monks and armed force personnel, including those who have served since the time of His Majesty the Second Druk Gyalpo, offered their wishes to His Majesty The King for His Majesty's Birth Anniversary, at the Lingkana Palace today.
For the veterans, who have witnessed some of the most important moments of our history during their service to their King and people, it was a special honour to also receive an opportunity to offer their Tashi Lekdhar for the Royal Birth of His Royal Highness The Gyalsey.

No.

Yes the king is called the dragon king in Bhutanese but his title is Druk Gyalpo. Druk is the Bhutanese word for dragon, not Gyalpo. Gyalpo simply means King.

The queen is Druk Gyaltsuen, literally the Dragon queen.

Gyaltsuen is the feminine, and Gyasley is the diminutive, 'the prince'.
