The desktop calendar for June has been released by Yellow Bhutan featuring Her Majesty Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan and her one-year-old son, Crown Prince Jigme Namgyel (also just referred to as The Gyalsey) with her husband, His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel.
In the Yellow Bhutan post revealing the new image and monthly calendar, they highlighted important dates for Bhutan during the month both in the past and present. They said that “coronation day of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo, on June 2, was traditionally commemorated as Social Forestry Day, with numerous trees planted on the day each year.”
The country also celebrates World Environment Day during the month.
Her Majesty and His Royal Highness were the featured image for the month because the Queen’s birthday is during the month of June. The Queen celebrates her birthday tomorrow, 4 June and turns 27-years-old.
Yellow Bhutan explained in their release of the calendar, “This month’s calendar commemorates Her Majesty’s birthday and Bhutan’s conservation efforts, and features this beautiful photograph of Her Majesty and His Royal Highness The Gyalsey, at the Lingkana Palace Gardens.”
They also sent well wishes to Queen Jetsun Pema for her birthday saying, “We join the people of Bhutan in offering our heartfelt wishes to Her Majesty, along with our prayers for Her Majesty’s continued happiness and wellbeing.”
Each month, Yellow Bhutan releases a free desktop calendar featuring the Bhutanese Royal Family. It includes both the Gregorian calendar dates and Bhutanese Lunar calendar dates. The calendar can be downloaded from their website here.
King Jigme Khesar Namgyel came to the throne after the abdication of his father, King Jigme Singye, in 2006. The King and Queen married in October 2011, and in December 2015, it was announced that they were expecting their first child. Their son was born on 5 February 2016.
