In Focus

The Atlantic In Focus with Alan Taylor has some spectacular photographs of Bhutan and the royal wedding.
 Last month, Bhutan celebrated the wedding of monarch Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, the fifth Druk Gyalpo ("Dragon King"), to 21-year-old commoner Jetsun Pema, now Druk Gyal-tsuen ("Dragon Queen") of Bhutan.
