They look so happy. I was so happy to watch this wedding.  I thought she looked beautiful and the wedding was fantastic. I love how they wanted to get out and meet so many people. Did you see the little girl hug the king while they we doing a walk about? That was so sweet.

http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/251171/20111117/bhutan-s-royal-couple-visits-japan-national.htm

Bhutan's King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and his wife, Queen Jetsun Pema, arrived in Tokyo Tuesday, kicking-off their six-day visit to Japan.

The newlywed royal couple of the Himalayan kingdom made their visit truly official as the duo were dressed in the Bhutanese national dress. Bhutan has a dress code for its citizens, who have to wear it in public every day. The national dress code, known as Driglam Namzha, was introduced in the 17th century to give the Bhutanese a distinct identity.

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The king and queen of Bhutan visited Fukushima Prefecture Friday to encourage people affected by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami and the nuclear crisis triggered by the disaster.

They are now in the U.K. 

I hope this wasn't posted elsewhere.

Will post more links and pictures once I can find them. Overall, I really liked Queen Jetsun's clothing and style. I can't believe she is only 21. She did a fantastic job  on this visit. I really believe she has an innate sense of grace and poise. I am quite impressed by her.

Quote
King-father Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia, who was never far from the center of his country's politics through a half-century of war, genocide and upheaval, has died. He was 89. Cambodian government spokesman Khieu Kanharith said Sihanouk died of natural causes early Monday in Beijing, where he had traveled for medical treatment.

Unpredictable, ebullient, mercurial, autocratic, self-indulgent - these are just some of the descriptions applied over the years to former King Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia.

Married six times and the father of at least 14 children, a saxophone player, a song writer, a film maker, a bon vivant who loved French cooking and wines, Sihanouk was never afraid of appearing eccentric.

"Cambodians are all naughty boys, and that includes me," he once said.

Yet beneath all the joking and indulgence was a master politician and leader who frequently changed allegiances but always tried to preserve the unity of his country and prevent it being gobbled up by the big powers.

Sihanouk was born in 1922, the eldest son of King Norodom Suramarit and Queen Kossamak.

Educated at French schools in Saigon and in Paris, the Nazi controlled Vichy government in France crowned Sihanouk king of Cambodia in 1941, bypassing his father in the hope that the 18 year old could easily be manipulated.

He had as many wives as King Henry VIII. I hope there is a movie somewhere on King Sihanouk, I'd love to see it.

RIP

Quote
It has all the makings of a best-selling novel.

An Indian maharajah crowned as a toddler and rich beyond imagination falls into a deep depression in old age after losing his only son.

After his own death a few months later, his daughters, the princesses, don't get the palaces, gold and vast lands they claim as their birthright.

Instead, they are given a few dollars a month from palace officials they accuse of scheming to usurp the royal billions with a forged will. The fight rages for decades.

On Saturday, an Indian court brought this chapter to a close, ruling that the will of Maharajah Harinder Singh Brar of Faridkot was fabricated.

His daughters will now inherit the estimated £2.6billion estate, instead of a trust run by his former servants and palace officials.

Thai princess uses social media to ‘declare war’: Photos posted by Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol widely interpreted as a sign of her support for anti-government protesters
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/thai-princess-uses-social-media-to-declare-war-photos-posted-by-princess-chulabhorn-mahidol-widely-interpreted-as-a-sign-of-her-support-for-antigovernment-protesters-9122267.html
Quote
It was a bolt from the red, white and blue. A few weeks ago the youngest daughter of Thailand’s ageing king posted several photographs of herself on social media. One of them showed her with hair braids of red, blue and white; another of her wearing a similarly-striped bracelet. These are the colours of Thailand’s national flag, but they have also come to be associated with the anti-government protesters who have rocked the country as they seek to oust Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.  Whether or not it was her intention to do so, the posting of the images by Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol was widely interpreted as a sign of her support for the anti-government forces.
"It was seen as a declaration of war," said a Thai political analyst sympathetic to the government, who asked not to be named. "Her doing that gave a symbol that elements within the palace support this protest 100 per cent."
The furore has drawn attention to an issue that is rarely discussed in public, but which some say is crucial to understanding what is happening in Thailand.
While the conflict is fuelled by several factors, say those analysts, the declining health of 86-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej and the behind-the-scenes jostling for position ahead of his succession is a major driver of the turmoil playing out on the streets of Bangkok.
