Bhutan Celebrates the Birth of a Crown Prince
A few months ago, we wrote about the joyous news of Bhutan's King and Queen expecting their first baby, and now the awaited moment is finally here. The baby boy was born on Friday at the Lingkana Palace in the capital Thimphu, the Royal Media Office said.
The Royal Media Office also disclosed that "Their Majesties and members of the Royal family are filled with profound joy on the birth of His Royal Highness."
The baby's name has not yet been announced. Early royal visitors to the couple will be the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who are making an official visit to Bhutan this spring.
Since the photos of the Crown Prince have not been made public yet, here are some of the lovely King and Queen that were released while they were expecting:
Congratulations to the happy King and Queen and the people of Bhutan! What a wonderful way to start the Lunar New Year!
