The Royal Wedding Anniversary By The Bhutanese | 12 October 2012
There is no better symbol then the Royal Couple of His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Gyaltsuen, for a country that is fiercely independent, has a rich heritage, a bright future and has citizens who are largely good and honest folk. ... The Royal Couple are the most important part of how Bhutan defines itself as a sovereign and independent nation, how we define ourselves as citizens in this nation and also how we are seen by foreigners.
The Monarchy through the Royal Couple represents what is common to all of us as citizens in Bhutan. The Monarchy is above political parties, above regions, above race, above religious sects and represents the true essence of the Bhutanese people, the very soul of the Bhutanese identity and the sovereign basis of the Bhutanese state.
The Royal Couple in the last one year since the Royal wedding has been a true source of joy and happiness to their subjects.
