The Royal Bhutan Government has declared a 3-day period of public holidays to coincide with next month's wedding of Bhutan's King Jigme Khesar and Jetsun Puma.

The day of the upcoming royal wedding, Thursday, October 13, 2011, will be a public holiday and will be followed by 2 additional public holidays, until Sunday, October 16, 2011, inclusively.

Three years ago (2008-11-04 and 2008-08-22) the government of Bhutan had similarly declared the period from Thursday, November 6, to Wednesday, November 12, 2008, as public holidays on the occasion of the coronation of the Fifth Druk Gyalpo (King Jigme Khesar) and Centenary Celebrations of Bhutan.
