His Majesty to Wed Jetsun Pema; a Joyous Nation Rejoices



The occasion was the seventh opening session of Parliament. The traditional procession and opening ceremony was attended to and set in motion by His Majesty the King. The procession to the Assembly Hall had a smiling and radiant King leading the way to the chamber accompanied by the Prime Minister and members of Parliament.

Once the august hall was filled, His Majesty addressed the parliamentarians and, perhaps more pertinently, the people of the 20 Dzongkhags.

It was a scene reminiscent of old tales where the knight in shining armor comes to the rescue of the beautiful princess, just one allegory among many. But the telling scene that will remain forever etched in the memories of those who witnessed His Majesty’s opening address to Parliament was this: his heartfelt message, simple, touching and endearing, that he had made the monumental decision to marry the future Queen of this country in October of this year.

There was visible joy when he touched upon this particular subject.

Even as the news was greeted with euphoria and ecstasy, His Majesty spoke about the qualities required in such person, reminding the hall and the country of the grave responsibilities of a Queen. Then in a touching moment of intimacy and unbridled joy at sharing it with his people, His Majesty swayed away would be fears, and assured the people that the Queen to be is a person who will not only embody the qualities expected of such a person, but would be the very manifestation of everything that is expected from the Queen of Bhutan - and above all else, that the future Queen is a good human being. This quality will, His Majesty stated, naturally ingrain all other qualities that will always put the people and the country above everything else.

“As my queen, I have found such a person and her name is Jetsun Pema.” His Majesty was warm and forthright in his address regarding the Queen. He stated that while Jetsun Pema is still young, she is warm and kind at heart.
“These qualities, together with the wisdom that will come with age and experience, will make her a great servant to the nation.”

The joy that was apparent in His Majesty’s announcement was immediately reflected in the hundreds and thousands of messages that kept popping up and dominated online forums. The joyous news spread like the spacious big blue skies. The revelation of the identity of the future Queen was the moment that probably melted hundreds and thousands of hearts not just at home but abroad. His Majesty the King announced, with a smile on his face, that her name is “ Jetsun Pema.”
His Majesty smiled and paused for a moment before shedding light on the idea of an ideal Queen.

“She should be uniquely beautiful, intelligent and graceful,” he said to joyous nation. The most important prerequisite required to be a Queen, His Majesty stated, was that she must be a “good human being” at all times and “unwavering” in her commitment to serve the people and the country.

And in what was an endearing quality that makes His Majesty the People’s King, he stated that the union does not mean he is starting his own family, for as King, the “people of Bhutan are my family,” his Majesty stated. “Such is the duty and privilege of all Kings of Bhutan,” His Majesty stated. “It is through this union, that I shall have a Queen who will support, and work with me, as I serve the people and the country.”

The Prime Minister, Lyonchhen Jigmi Y Thinley, expressed his happiness at the announcement of the royal wedding and highlighted the pivotal role of the throne in Bhutanese nationhood.
Lyonchhen also offered his good wishes to the future queen.

During his address, His Majesty said the wedding will be in accordance with age-old tradition and he asked the government not to make any plans for a grand celebration.

The Opposition Leader, Tshering Tobgay, however said that though His Majesty has wished for a small ceremony, as the People’s King, it is likely that people from all over the country would love to celebrate it in a festive way and strive to become a part of this historic moment.

When His Majesty named Jetsun Pema as his future wife, 78-year old Kesang Deki from Thimphu shed a tear, for the man who was once a child and now her King had finally decided to take a partner who would stand alongside him.
“I was really touched when he smiled and blushed while naming the future Queen,” she said. “I am glad to have lived to watch a little boy finally become a man.”

As congratulatory remarks poured on Twitter and Facebook, many saw Jetsun Pema for the first time. Sagar Kumar wrote on Facebook that he is glad that there will be a “gorgeous” Queen to look after his King.

While every Bhutanese is looking forward to the big day, many who spoke to Bhutan TODAY said it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity to congratulate the “Royal Couple” in person.

His Majesty stated: “I ask the government not to make any plans for a grand celebration. The happiness of my beloved father and the blessings of our People will give me the greatest joy and happiness.”

Meanwhile, the nation awaits a joyous and auspicious grand occasion in October.
