Nepal Queen Komal receives flowers by a girl during her 57th birthday celebration at Narayanhiti Royal Palace in Kathmandu, Nepal, Monday 19 February 2007. Queen Komal and Crown Prince Paras made their first rare public appearance after Interim constitution cut the King’s and monarchy’s power. Hundreds Pro royalists and limited people have gathered inside the palace to celebrate the birthday.

I heard Nepal changed the succession law of the monarchy to Equal Primogeniture!

I'm so proud of them!!! This means they're the first non-European monarchy to do this!

The Nepalese Government hasn't done that.It has given itself the right to appoint the Crown Prince of Nepal,which would be a moot point if Prachanda & his Maoist barbarians get their way.

There's still a lot of resentment towards the Maoists,& rightfully so! If King Birendra had not been murdered by his son,Prachanda would more than likely be dead.

There's some confusion about this. I believe that they have done both of these things, i.e. they have changed the succession to equal primogeniture, AND given themselves the right to appoint the heir to the throne. That allows them to skip Paras or any unsuitable person, but the succession is still guided by the concept of equal primogeniture.

Nepal's Crown Prince Paras leaves hospital. The heir to Nepal's threatened throne was discharged from hospital nearly a week after suffering a heart attack, doctors said

And there we are. Orf they go. Perhaps I should pop over to Nepal and see if I can get in somewhere. There's always something rather funky going on when a monarchy topples.

Yikes. Well, I guess Nepal will be the latest country to scrap the monarchy. Shame, but I'm glad they didn't decide to force the king and CP Paras to abdicate in favor of little Prince Hridayendra like they were trying to do during the summer. The last thing that country needs is a child king.

If I understand our press reports correctly, it looks like we are in the final days if not hours of Nepal's monarchy. Is there no one or no party in Nepal that supports the monarchy, even if they do not support the current king?

That's what happens when you continue a line of autocratic intentions, though as this is no place for politics...

They weren't for the people, they were for themselves, as is my studied and formulated opinion.

It seems today Wednesday, the 28th of May 2008 is the last day the Shah Dynasty is going to be ruling Nepal. Gyandera is going to go from a soverign to a pretender in a matter of hours.

Apparantly King Gyanendra and Queen Komal have been removed from the Palace and were seen being driven away on Tuesday but nobody's sure where they are.

They have not been removed since Gyanendra was seen driving himself and his wife. The probably went to the private residence in Khatmandu. Hopefully the rest of the family is all packed and ready to go. They need to leave Nepal immediately.

Surely there should be a referendum on the monarchy as it should be the people who choose and not the politicians.

Nepal abolishes monarchy:

Nepal votes to abolish monarchy

The Himalayan nation of Nepal has become the world's newest republic, ending 240 years of monarchy. A constituent assembly meeting in the capital, Kathmandu, overwhelmingly voted to abolish royal rule. The Maoists, who emerged as the largest party in last month's elections, were committed to ousting King Gyanendra and creating a republic.

Errrr... Is this a case like Greece, where the royal family will now be exiled, or will they be allowed to stay and keep their titles. Will they even be allowed to keep their homes, and have any part in society?
