Bhutan king to marry India-educated bride Oct 13

Friday September 16, 2011 02:56:43 PM, IANS

Sanawar (Himachal Pradesh): The date is set for a royal wedding. Bhutan's 31-year-old king Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck will tie the knot with his India-educated bride, Jetsun Pema, Oct 13, an official of her alma mater here said Friday.

Jetsun is an alumna of the prestigious Lawrence School in the Kasauli hills here and her younger sister Serchen Doma is still studying here. The family has sought leave for her to attend the wedding.

"Jetsun Pema, who was with us three years back, is going to wed with Bhutan's king Oct 13," her teacher Deepak Bahuguna told IANS.

He said an e-mail in this regard was received by the school authorities from her mother two days back. "She informed us about Pema's wedding and requested the school authorities to allow her younger daughter to travel to Bhutan to attend celebrations," he added.

Serchen Doma is a Class 12 student at Lawrence.

Jetsun's alma mater is hoping to receive a royal invite for her wedding.

The would-be-bride completed her Class 12 from Lawrence School in March 2008. She's now 20 years old.

"Jetsun was with us for two years from 2006 onwards. She was just like a commoner...We only knew that she was from Bhutan," Bahuguna said.

Wangchuck, the Oxford-educated Bhutan king, announced in his inaugural address to the Himalayan nation's parliament May 20 that he intended to marry Jetsun in October.
