The Royal Wedding of His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Queen of Bhutan will be held on October 13, 2011, with the celebrations covering three days, from October 13 to 15, 2011. The Royal Wedding will not be a media show and the celebrations will not be an ostentatious event of pomp and elaborate festivity. It will be a sacred ceremony and a special occasion for the Bhutanese people.
