Bhutan's Queen Jetsun Pema celebrates milestone Wedding Anniversary with King Jigme Khesar

Celebrations are in order for Bhutan's royal family as King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema marked their tenth wedding anniversary on Wednesday.

The couple married on 13 October 2011 at Punakha Dzong, with a ceremony held in Punakha, followed by a public celebration in Thimphu and Paro. The scale of the royal wedding celebrations in Bhutan was unprecedented and media came from all over the world to cover it.

In a country where public displays of affection between couples are not commonplace, the king spoke openly of his love for his wife. He delighted guests at their wedding by giving her a kiss on the lips. "I was very proud of her," he said after the elaborate ceremony. "She is a wonderful human being."
