Another Royal Wedding

As seen here, Bhutan Post and Thailand Post have issued six sets of stamps to commemorate the royal wedding of King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Jetsun Pema which will place later this week.

According to an article in the Bangkok Post, the stamp sets consist of "one gold, two embossed and two holographic sets and one souvenir sheet."

Tseten Geltsen, managing director of Bhutan Post is quoted as saying the reason Thailand was chosen was because "they were impressed by the quality of stamps printed in 2008 by the Thai British Security Printing Company for the 100th anniversary of the Wangchuck dynasty despite very short notice. The second reason was because King Jigme is highly revered and loved in Thailand."
