Thailand: Bhutan\’sRoyal wedding Gets Stamps of Approval

\"\"Bhutan Post and Thailand Post have unveiled six sets of stamps to commemorate the royal wedding of King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Jetsun Pema next Thursday. The first lot of the stamps were yesterday presented to HE Tshering Dorji, Ambassador of Bhutan to Thailand who will then present them to King Jigme on behalf of the Thai people.The stamp sets consist of one gold, two embossed and two holographic sets and one souvenir sheet.Tseten Geltsen, managing director of Bhutan Post said the reason Thailand was chosen was because they were impressed by the quality of stamps printed in 2008 by the Thai British Security Printing Company for the 100th anniversary of the Wangchuck dynasty despite very short notice.The second reason was because King Jigme is highly revered and loved in Thailand.
