King of Bhutan Pays His Respects To The Late King Bhumibol
King Jigme Khesar of Bhutan arrived in Bangkok last night with his wife, Queen Jetsun Pema, and their eight-month-old son Prince Jigme Namgyel to pay their respects to the late Thai King, Bhumibol Adulyadej.
They were greeted at the Suvarnabhumi Airport by the Deputy Prime Minister, Somkid Jatusripitak.
This morning, King Jigme Khesar and Queen Jetsun Pema prayed at King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s royal urn in the Grand Palace. They also signed the book of condolence, the King leaving a message that read, “To the Incomparable, Visionary and Most Precious Jewel King, the King of Thailand, who attained Parinirvana, I would like to offer my deepest respect, and my heartfelt prayers. May Your Majesty always be born as Dharma Raja, to the benefit of all sentient beings.”
