Their Majesties graces the third Royal Flower Exhibition
Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen inaugurated the 3rd Royal Bhutan Flower Exhibition on June 4th at the National Memorial Chorten. The event was graced by His Majesty The King, His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo, Members of the Royal Family, the Prime Minister, and senior government officials. Her Imperial Highness Princess Mako of Japan was a special guest at the event.
The Flower Exhibition which is being held at the National Memorial Chorten in Thimphu this year is dedicated to His Majesty the Third King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck. The RBFE was initiated upon the Royal Command of His Majesty The King in 2015, to foster an appreciation for beautiful spaces and encourage entrepreneurship in floriculture.
The exhibition is organized by the ministry of agriculture. Private nurseries and various agencies participated in the exhibition along with international participants from India, Thailand, and Japan, to set up micro gardens for the exhibition. Officials from the agriculture ministry and other agencies have been working at the Memorial Chorten for weeks in preparation for the exhibition, along with the support of volunteers. At the same time, numerous government agencies and private offices have taken up the respon- sibility of developing micro gardens around their own offices and surroundings across Thimphu, in the spirit of the objectives of the Royal Bhutan Flower Exhibition.
The exhibition was open to the public from 5th June onwards. The exhibition remained open till 8 pm each day. The 3rd Royal Flower Exhibition will end today.
