King Jigme and Queen Jetsun of Bhutan have released a new picture of their son Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck. The new photograph was released an early gift for the fans of the Bhutanese royals on the occasion of the 26th birthday of the queen on June Saturday. The baby prince is all grown up in the new picture as he is now almost four-month-old.
The image of the baby prince has been published in the June instalment of an online calendar released by the Royal Office. Jigme, who turned 36 in February, took to his official Facebook page and shared the picture of his son with royal fans. “Summer is here with long, warm days and a profusion of colors. As we enjoy the lovely flowers and plenitudes of nature, in Commemoration of Her Majesty’s Birthday on June 4, we dedicate this month’s calendar to our beloved Queen,” the caption reads.
The baby prince lies down and looks directly at the camera. The royal baby wears a white Babygro while lying down on a yellow silk blanket. It also shows little Jigme’s head full of jet black hair like his dad and his stylish mom.
The tot’s thick, side-swept hair, is brushed and perfectly parted. The desktop calendar has been published in Yellow Bhutan curated by the Royal Office for Media of Bhutan. Jigme’s parents also known as the Dragon King and Queen announced his name on April 17.
The Bhutanese royal couple also known as the “William and Kate of the Himalayas” welcomed their first child on Feb. 5. They shared the first picture of their newborn son days after his birth. The king and queen were photographed with their baby prince along with his paternal grandfather (the former king and King Jigme’s father) in the garden of the Lingkana Palace in Thimphu.
