New photos of Prince (Gyalsey) of Bhutan were published

King Jigme Khesar of Bhutan (Jigme Khesar Namgyel born on February 21, 1980) celebrates his 36th birthday on February 21. In honor of the birthday, Bhutan Royal House published new photos of 15 days old newborn Prince (Gyalsey).
As he opened the session of parliament on Friday, 20 May 2011, the King announced his engagement to Jetsun Pema, born in Thimphu on 4 June 1990. They were married on 13 October 2011 in Punakha Dzong.
The royal wedding was Bhutan's largest media event in history. The royal wedding ceremony was held in Punakha followed by formal visits to different parts of the country.
During the ceremony the King also received the Crown of the Druk Gyaltsuen (Queen) from the most sacred Machhen temple of the Dzong and bestowed it on Jetsun Pema, formally proclaiming her as Queen of the Kingdom of Bhutan.
On November 11, 2015, it was announced that the King and Queen of Bhutan are expecting their first child, a son, early next year. The king and queen announced via their Facebook page, the arrival of their son who was born in Lingkana Palace in the capital city of Thimpu on 5 February 2016
His Royal Highness The Gyalsey (born on 5 February 2016). The coronation ceremony comprised an ancient and colourful ritual, attended by thousands of foreign dignitaries, including the then President of India, Pratibha Patil
On 31 October 2004, Khesar was installed as the Trongsa Penlop in Trongsa Dzong". The institution of the Trongsa Penlop, started by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal in 1647, signifies the true heritage to the Bhutanese Throne and the investiture ceremony of the Trongsa Penlop is the formal declaration of this status of the Crown Prince
In December 2005, King Jigme Singye Wangchuck announced his intention to abdicate in his son's favour in 2008, and that he would begin handing over responsibility to him immediately.
On 9 December 2006, the former King issued a Royal Edict announcing his abdication, and transferred the throne to Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck who was officially crowned on 1 November 2008, in Punakha.
Religious ceremonies and public celebrations were also held at Tashichhodzong and Changlimithang in Thimphu

  8. Lovely pictures, beautiful traditional costumes, the heir wrapped in a gold blanket wearing a knit cap (modern nod?), but what's the baby's name? The official title is HRH The Gyalsey. Gyalsey means "dragon child".

    1. I believe The Gyalsey means Kings Son or Prince.

  9. In my humble opinion this is what Royalty should look like. Traditional costumes, traditional values. No, one does not need to dance ballet in a Moroccan Musk or wear Prada to represent it's country. Beauty meets class, integrity, history, and pride of your home land. Bravo Your Majesties and the young Crown Prince.

    1. Don't be so naive. Do you really think that common bhutanese people can afford the clothes their royals are wearing? Those are for them the very equivalent of Prada in the West if not beyond. Do you really think as well that common bhutanese people can afford to travel and go abroad like their royals? Believe me, there are Likely much more Danes Who can afford to go to Morocco than Bhutanese to travel to neighboring India or Nepal.
      At the end of the day, what matters is that people are happy with what their royals represent and do for them. It's clearly the case in Bhutan, as it is in Denmark.

    3. Thanks for the link, Anonymous 8:36. Clearly, these traditional clothes are just for photos, haha.
      I can not believe people are so naive.

    4. No they are not just for photos if you check on the King or Queen Facebook pages even on official state visit they always represent their countries in the traditional clothing.

      Thanks much for the link we see things as they are not always traditional.

    6. They should represent their country in traditional clothing, there is nothing wrong with this, also wearing in private what is to personal taste as long as it is attractive and respectable as a royal. Bhutan leads the developing world in many policies, this photo session is so beautiful for the natural and authentic affection and ease of this new family!

    7. As we saw from their state visit to UK they are wearing western clothes on official state visit too.

    1. Did you really again need to bring Catherine to chain were is absolutely nothing related to her. I am so fed up reading these Catherine hate mails in every single post. In early pictures of Charlotte her head is uphold with Catherine´s forearm and the child was completely safe. I just cannot believe what all is diged up to be negative for Catherine.
