HM is the tireless commander- trotting meadows high and vales low, there in no hamlets or villages the King didn't walk. It is the King's goodwill visiting all the people contributing lands to grow meals, build houses for the aging parents, educate the nation about Bhutan's sovereignty and importance of democracy, put economically challenged children to go to schools, care for recovering addicts, support any projects of the people, the list goes on. HM became King on 9 December 2006. HM married a commoner, thus makimg a commoner the Queen of Bhutan, Her Majesty Jetsun Pema Wangchuck. Bhutan has now a nation's son- His Highness Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck.
