Yeewong pays tribute to Her Majesty the Royal Grandmother Ashi Kesang Choeden Wangchuck. In the exclusive Winter 2012 issue, Yeewong revisits Bhutan’s history through the personal journey Of Her Majesty and reveals the Queen’s many wonderful attributes, not only as a Queen but also as a Mother and an upholder of Dharma in the Kingdom of Bhutan.
We cried, danced, laughed, and hugged everyone within reach. A Prince will be born to us!

As our young Queen navigates the sacred path to motherhood, we send our most heartfelt prayers for the health of Her Majesty and the little Prince.
