Yellow Bhutan has released their November calendar; this time it features His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel and The Gyalsey (Crown Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck). It has become a theme of Yellow Bhutan‘s to use images of the Bhutanese Royal Family on the calendars each month.
On the download page, Yellow Bhutan said, “It’s a new month, and we have a new photograph on our monthly calendar to warm your hearts as the cold sets into the valleys and settles in for the winter months.
“This wonderful photograph was taken at the Dechenphu Lhakhang, which is a sacred temple dedicated to Ap Genyen, one of the most important protector deities of Bhutan, on 30th October, during the Dechenphu Tshechu, which is a festival dedicated to the deity.
“We dedicate this month’s calendar to the commemoration of Coronation Day on 1st November, and the birth anniversary of His Majesty Drukgyal Zhipa on 11th November.”
King Jigme Khesar Namgyel was officially crowned as the Druk Gyalpo or “Dragon King” of Bhutan on 6 November 2008 after his father, Jigme Singye Wangchuck, abdicated in 2006. The former monarch, now called the King Father of Bhutan, will celebrate his 62nd birthday on the 11th of this month.
On King Jigme Khesar Namgyel’s official Facebook, the Office of His Majesty shared the above video about his reign in celebration of Coronation Day.
The free calendars include both the Gregorian calendar dates and Bhutanese Lunar calendar dates. The calendar for this month can be downloaded from their website here.
The King and Queen Jetsun Pema’s son, The Gyalsey has been featured numerous times in the calendars, including September.
After Yellow Bhutan released the November edition, Her Majesty Queen Jetsun Pema and His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck shared the post on their official Facebook pages. Both utilise their social media accounts to keep the public informed about their royal engagements. You can follow the King, here and the Queen, here.
Their Majesties and His Royal Highness are currently on an official visit to India.
