The aus­pi­cious tid­ing was ac­com­pa­nied by much joy and celebrations.

The Ten­drel ini­tia­tives in­clud­ing cre­at­ing pub­lic­ity and aware­ness among the Bhutanese pub­lic of the three his­tor­i­cal events, the pro­duc­tion of a 500-page al­bum con­tain­ing wishes and prayers for the Prince and fi­nally, the plant­ing of 108,000 trees by thou­sands of vol­un­teers marked The Gyalsey’s birth celebrations.
