Royal Profile: Prince Dasho Jigme Dorji Wangchuck of Bhutan

Prince Dasho Jigme Dorji Wangchuck of Bhutan was born 14 April 1986, and is the 4th son of King Jugme Singye Wangchuck and Queen Ashi Tshering Yangdon. He has two older siblings, including King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, and has 3 half-brothers, and 4 half-sisters.


In February 2009, it was revealed that the Prince was attending Menlo College {Source}. However, it is likely that by now, in 2018, he has either finished or is nearly finished with his studies.

Since his studies take priority and often place him away from Bhutan, he is only seldom seen attending functions in Bhutan.

He married Yeatso Lhamo in October 2013{Source}. Yeasto is the elder sister of Queen Jetsun Pema, Prince Dasho Jigme Dorji Wangchuck's sister-in-law. Together he and his wife have one child{Source}:
