Published by Roli publications based in New Delhi, the coffee-table book has 176 pages of pictures of Bhutan’s crystal clear lakes, ancient monuments, wildlife, flora and fauna, and everyday life, including rural Bhutan.
Most of the photographs in the book were taken by His Majesty the King.

The royal touch
King of Bhutan Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck and his Queen Jetsun were in Delhi on their honeymoon last month, captivating Delhi’s chattering classes. At the Rashtrapati Bhavan, in his banquet speech, the King spoke of the close ties between India and Bhutan.
And then, he turned to the subject of marriage. “As I have been married for ten whole days, I feel I am sufficiently experienced to speak on the subject,” he said solemnly, as the entire table smiled widely.
But the real story is the one that never got told. In Punakha, the administrative capital of Bhutan, the King and the Queen were on a walk-about in a huge archery stadium. From one end of the stadium, the King called out to the crowd, “What do you think? Shall I kiss my bride?”
“Yes,” roared the crowd. So, he kissed the new Queen on one cheek. “Are you satisfied,” he asked. “No,” roared the crowd.
So, he kissed her on the other cheek. “Are you satisfied now?” he asked. “Yes,” answered the crowd.
“But I’m not satisfied,” said the King and kissed his wife on the lips in public. The crowd went mad.

Got to talk to some civil servants from Bhutan. They just love their King. Coming from a democracy myself, it was wonderful hearing intelligent, critical people express utmost confidence and belief in a leader. It's amazing. They said that when the King was in his teens, he first met the Queen and told her they'd meet again when they were older and that they would get married if both of them were still single at the time.

Haha..seems like the King is taking his new Queen on a part honeymoon/part official visit tour to introduce her to the Asia countries. Since their wedding last month, they have visited India, Singapore and now, Japan.

Once again, thank you so much Kasumi for keeping us up to date with news of King Jigme and Queen Jetsun. I am quite struck at the lovely way in which the king and queen greet people, with such grace and humility.
I should imagine that the people of Bhutan are missing their king and queen and look forward to their return!

King's sister launches her book for children

Bhutantoday: Bhutan - HRH launches her book “Raven Tells a Story
Coinciding with the celebration of the 56th birth anniversary of the fourth Druk Gyalpo and Children’s Day today, November 11, HRH Ashi Sonam Dechan Wangchuck launched her book 'The Raven Tells a Story' at the Folk Heritage Museum in Kawajangsa, Thimphu.
This is Her Royal Highness’s first published work dedicated to the Father of Bhutan’s Constitution, the fourth Druk Gyalpo, Jigme Singye Wangchuck.
'The Raven Tells a Story' is set in a small, bucolic village in Bhutan resonating the life found throughout the country. The story follows the protagonist, Singye, on a quest for answers about a ‘curious book’.
His journey towards ‘constitutional’ enlightenment is populated with often transient and ethereal interactions with his close-knit family, his friend Wangyal, schoolteachers and classmates, and the mythic Raven, which is much alike (and in deference to) the historical significance of a Raven that guided the great Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel to Bhutan in the early 17th century.

Is it only an impression of me, or do we all see the King of Bhutan more often since he is married?

HM is very active since his inauguration in 2008.
It's just his young wife who attracts more attention of public now. The Japanese are enchanted with the Royal couple after their state visit.

I would also love to see bigger pictures of the Bhutan royal couple in UK:-)

Searched for a shop that sells the book of King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck´s photographs but I could only find this page: Flipkart.com: Bhutan: Through The Lens Of The King: Book: Malvika Singh (9788174368591)

Hope it will be available on amazon or in stores soon....the book cover looks great and I am really excited to see the other pictures,especially his portrait of Q.Jetsun Pema!
