The King and Queen of Bhutan have announced that the Queen is expecting their third child.

The complete statement reads, “Their Majesties, The Druk Gyalpo and Gyaltsuen are happy to share the news that Her Majesty is expecting their third child, due in early autumn.
Their Majesties wish to thank everyone for their continued good wishes and prayers.”

Jetsun Pema married King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck of Bhutan in 2011, and they already have two sons together: Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck (born 2016) and Prince Jigme Ugyen Wangchuck (born 2020). Their third child will be third in the line of succession, although a girl would be displaced by the birth of a younger brother.
