For the longest time I thought Jigme was a title as the heir, current King and his father all have that name. But I have been led to believe that it’s actually a first name and that the couple’s second son also features Jigme. So does that mean they are going to be called by their middle names?
Also I read today that Bhutanese people have two given names, neither of which is a surname or family name unless they are descended from royal or noble lineages. So how is it know that people are related to others, do you address them by their names and not say Mr/Mrs etc? Does Mr/Mrs not exist in Bhutanese language?
Sorry if this is a really silly question!

I thought the same thing, Tsarinya!  Anyway, here is what I found.  Apparently titles are a very big deal there and it’s usually impolite to address a person by just his or given name:

"A day after China repeated its claims over Eastern Bhutan, Bhutan issued a rare statement, asserting that “all disputed areas” will be discussed when the Bhutan-China boundary talks, which have not been scheduled for four years, are held again."

What do you guys think about China´s claims?

Is Bhutan in danger?

Why is the western media silent on this matter?  Thumb down

July 21
The King travelled to Gelephu, accompanied by the Prime Minister and Chief Operations Officer of the RBA, as the rescue operations were being completed.

A team of five soldiers braved the waters of the Mao Chhu to rescue people at the Mao Chhu Water Treatment Plant last evening at around 8:30 pm. The people were in imminent danger of being washed away by flash floods as the river swelled due to two days of incessant rain. The team rescued five of the people who were stranded, but four soldiers, Peljab Ugyen, Gopa Pema Wangdi, Chuma Dup Tshering, and Chuma Tandin Dorji lost their own lives in the process. Chuma Kinzang Dorji is the only member of the team that survived.

The deceased soldiers have been posthumously awarded the Drakpoi Khorlo medal for their extraordinary courage and their supreme sacrifice in the line of duty. His Majesty Commanded that their families would continue to receive salaries, allowances, and all benefits that the soldiers would have received during their service and in their retirement.

That is so terribly sad. All those families without loved ones. And the single survivor.  Cry The king has done everything he could.

They are gorgeous

"Exquisite" is the word that comes to mind anytime I see a photo of them. And they seem to be devoted to each other, their family, and their country, engaging with their countrymen and women with genuine compassion. I love this couple!
