    Bhutan’s King and Queen Are Expecting A Royal Baby

    The new addition will make them a family of five. King Jigme Khesar and Queen Jetsun Pema are already parents to two young sons — Prince Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel, 7, who is also known as the Dragon Prince as his father’s heir, and Prince Jigme Ugyen Wangchuck, 3, who is known as Prince Gyalsey Ugyen.

    Queen Jetsun Pema, 33, and King Jigme Khesar, 43, tied the knot in October 2011 and welcomed their sons in the years that followed.

    If the Queen’s baby on the way is a boy, he will be born third in the line of succession to the Bhutan throne. If the child is a girl, however, she could be displaced by a future younger brother. The constitution dictates that princes take precedence over princesses in the line of succession to the Golden Throne of Bhutan.

    “When the time comes for Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck to serve his country, he must always place the concerns of his country above all else and serve his people justly with great love and dedication,” King Jigme said at a public ceremony. “It will be his sacred responsibility to build a harmonious and just society, and thereby, fulfill all the aspirations of his people. He must live such a life as a good human being and serve his country in a manner that it will be exemplary and worthy of emulation.”

    In May 2022, the boys joined their mom and dad to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the founding of its Central Monk Body at Punakha Dzong. The family of four attended the prayer ceremony together, where Prince Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel looked at his little brother with love.
