• Bhutan royal wedding: Pride of a people as Dragon King prepares to marry beautiful pilot's daughter

    When Bhutan's charismatic young king was crowned in 2008, tens of thousands of his subjects, including nomadic yak herders, trekked for days from all over the tiny Asian country to salute him. King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck, 31 – an Oxford graduate whose tastes encompass mountain-biking and the music of Elvis – rewarded their affection by greeting thousands of them in person and hugging their children. Now, the 'prince charming of the Himalayas' as he's been dubbed, is to wed a beautiful student ten years his junior in three days of colourful festivities, starting from October 14. CLICK ON PHOTOS
