King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuk and his wife Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan released the first picture of their baby boy Tuesday. The little prince was born on Friday. The first official picture of the baby prince was released by the Lingkana Palace in Thimphu.
The picture shows the baby on the lap of his grandfather the former king of Bhutan Jigme Singye Wangchuk. The 60-year-old is also the fourth Druk Gyalpo, who cradles the four-day old baby boy on his lap as he sits between the new parents.
The baby is wrapped in an orange blanket in the new picture. The 35-year-old king and his father are seen to be wearing similar attires in orange and white checks. The former monarch wears black knee-high socks paired with black shoes.
Jigme wears black socks paired with brown lace-up shoes. His wife Pema looks stylish as ever in an orange and pink silk shirt, paired with a long skirt in blue and white patterns. Her long raven tresses are left loose over her shoulder in curls. She accessorizes with a pair of drop earrings.
“Bhutanese families spent a wonderful Losar today, celebrating the day with family and loved ones. To make the day even more special, we have the honour of bringing to you the very first official photograph of His Royal Highness The Gyalsey,” a message on King Jigme’s official Facebook page read.
The couple along with their son and the former king pose in what appears to be the garden of the Lingkana Palace, seated on a couch. The couch is covered in traditional prints of Bhutan. A carpet is spread on the ground, while the palace is seen in the background.
The Bhutanese royals welcomed their prince on Friday. They announced their “happiness” through a statement in the official Facebook page of the king. The couple were married in a fairytale wedding in 2011.
