Both 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.

King Jigme and Queen Jetsun Pema were married in October 2011, and the birth of their first child was honoured by the planting of 108,000 trees in Bhutan by thousands of volunteers. Known simply as The Gyalsey (‘the prince’) for the first few months of his life, the new-born Prince Jigme’s name was not announced to the world until 16 April 2016.

The Gyalsey or Crown Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck is the only child of the King and Queen of Bhutan. He was born on 5 February 2016 in Lingkana Palace in Thimphu, Bhutan.
