Family royal photo graces Bhutan’s March calendar

This month’s calendar for Yellow Bhutan features a new family photo of the Bhutanese Royal Family.

It features the King of Bhutan, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, Queen Jetsum Pema, Crown Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck (also called The Gyalsey), and the Queen Mother Tshering Yangdon.

Each calendar features Gregorian calendar dates and Bhutanese Lunar calendar dates, as well as public holidays in Bhutan.

When revealing March’s calendar, Yellow Bhutan stated, “Our March calendar features this very special photograph of His Majesty The King, Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen, Her Majesty the Royal Grandmother, and His Royal Highness The Gyalsey, during Losar (5th of February 2019)

“This year, Losar coincided with His Royal Highness’ Birthday. Their Majesties and His Royal Highness celebrated the special day with Her Majesty the Royal Grandmother at Bhutan House in Kalimpong.”

It is thought that the photo on the calendar was taken during the birthday celebrations. The King turned 39 on 21 February, and his son celebrated his third birthday earlier in the month on 5 February.

Their Majesties King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema shared the Yellow Bhutan post on their official Facebook pages, as well. 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.

You can download the March calendar here.

It is available to download for both Macs and PCs for desktops, tablets, and smartphones.

The Bhutanese royals have featured on the calendar several times over the past few years and will, no doubt, continue to do so.
