A royal wedding took place on October 29th in Bhutan.
Princess Euphelma Choden Wangchuck , daughter of the former king Jigme Singye Wangchuck, married Dasho Thinlay Norbu at the Royal Palace Dechecholing of Thimphou.

The groom is the younger brother of Queen Jetsun.

So the King's little half-sister married the Queen's little brother. That's keeping the family close by. 

I have the impression of déja vu though...  Thinking

If I remember correctly, this already happened a few years ago when a brother of the King married a sister of Queen Jetsun, but I can't find of which page of this thread it's mentioned.  Confused I hope my tired brain isn't imaging it...  Secret But I'm pretty sure I'm correct.

Thanks for the update, Elissa  Star

On the Royal IG it states:


Her Royal Highness Princess Eeuphelma Choden Wangchuck married Dasho Thinlay Norbu in a Royal Wedding ceremony today.

The Royal Wedding was held at Dechencholing Palace in Thimphu. The Royal Couple received the blessings of His Majesty The King, His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo and His Holiness the Je Khenpo.

Her Royal Highness Princess Eeuphelma Choden Wangchuck was born in 1993 to His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo and Her Majesty Gyalyum Sangay Choden Wangchuck. Her Royal Highness graduated with a major in Sociology from Georgetown University in the United States in 2016. As President of the Bhutan Paralympic Committee, Her Royal Highness represents Bhutan internationally to take forward the participation of Bhutanese athletes with disabilities in various global sporting events.

Dasho Thinlay Norbu was born to Yab Dhondup Gyaltshen and Yum Sonam Choki in 1992, and is the younger brother of Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen. After graduating from St. Stephen’s college in Delhi University, Dasho trained as a pilot and has been flying for the National Airline Drukair since 2019.

The Royal Couple are both active DeSuups.



DeSuups



Dessuups- The Guardians of Peace
Dessuup is the highest form of the voluntary act in Bhutan. The volunteers wearing an orange uniform will be easily spotted in any event of disasters, charitable work and celebration to help. The first syllable of the word "De"(bde) originates from the word "Dekyid" meaning peace or tranquility and "De" is commonly understood to be the shortened version of Dekyid. The second syllable "Suung"(Srung) is commonly referred to as the act of guarding or protecting. Therefore, the phrase - "De-Suung" means "Guardians of Peace". Desuups are volunteers from all walks of life. From the graduates to the executives of the country, the orange dress unifies all Bhutanese and promotes community vitality.

The main aims and objectives of Desuung are to cultivate the values of amity, allegiance, unity and harmony, to encourage all citizens to be active in the greater role of nation-building, to provide useful and appropriate skills and knowledge in the field of disaster management. To instill a greater sense of community, harmony and cooperation as a group and individual members of society. To instill good human traits and values such as discipline, integrity, teamwork, commitment and dedication to work, respect for elders and seniors, sense of ownership, accountability and responsibility and to enhance the spirit of volunteerism and to undertake charitable work.

Desuups program first started in 2011 under the patronage of His Majesty the 5th King of Bhutan. So far 4,457 Bhutanese have trained as Desuups since the programme was initiated in 2011. As per the Command of His Majesty The King, the Desuung Integrated Training Programme is instituted to be a value-based personal development program with the main objective to encourage all citizens to be active in the greater role of nation-building. Through these training programmes, all Desuup trainees are expected to appreciate the sense of community, harmony and cooperation as a group and as active members of society.

Technically, the majority of the Bhutanese people do not have either lesser degree of understanding of issues connected to disaster risk management, nor do they have the right technical skills to fight disasters. Therefore, in times of emergencies and an acute shortage of skilled manpower to take up the challenge of search and rescue operations, relief operations, and rehabilitation and reconstruction desuups volunteers to work for the betterment of the community.

The underlying premise of the training programme is built upon the spirit of “volunteerism” and the positive influence of ethics and values of community service, integrity and civic responsibility. It is also expected that any citizen who has undergone this training programme actively volunteers during disaster operations, participate in charitable activities and be of service to others throughout their lives.


Very interesting!

 Star  Thumb up Thanks for your efficient research, PeDe ! I really had a strange air of 'déja vu'. I'm glad 2020 hasn't yet claimed my mind & memory.  Grin

I wonder what are ties between these two families for them to have three marriages uniting them.

At least it’s better than the former king who married four sisters on the same day.

Maybe it's a extablished (ruling) families thing. They know each other and they "fit".

Experience? No clue!

These marriages strike me as borderline medieval.

This isn't a good or bad thing, it just looks like a snapshot of how things were done back in the day i.e. when marriages were dictated by the emphasis on suitability and family alliances.

I'm pretty sure all of the Bhutan royals are related, both closely and distantly. Don't forget the king knew Jetsun most of his life and said he would marry her when he was very young. I'm sure that was encouraged.

It's a miracle that they are so beautiful as the in-breeding seems to do the opposite for European royals and aristos lol.

Good luck to the bride and groom!
