The massacre at the Naryanhity Royal Palace was the worst royal massacre since the murder of Tsar Nicholas II and his family in November 1917.
A report prepared by the probe committee formed under the then Chief Justice Keshav Prasad Upadhyaya following the massacre confirmed that Crown Prince Dipendra had killed the ten members of the royal family including the King and the Queen following a family dispute and then took his own life.
Thousands of people, some with shaven head to mourn King Birendra’s death, had come into the streets in the following days demanding proper investigation into the palace massacre.
However, nine years after the tragic massacre, the people of the country have still not been convinced enough about what transpired that fateful night when the nation lost its most beloved King. - NepalNews

Former king Gyanendra celebrated his 64th birth anniversary on Wednesday at his private residence Nirmal Niwas, Maharajgunj, in a manner faintly reminiscent of the monarchy era.
Hundreds of well-wishers including former royalist politicians and Sadhus stayed in a long queue in front of Nirmal Niwas to wish him a happy birthday. School kids in uniforms were also seen in the queue.
Traffic movement was obstructed in Maharajgunj area for hours due to the crowd in front Nirmal Niwas. - Nepal News

Nepal ex-king's son-in-law nabbed for disco orgy

Less than a week after he hit the headlines for joining politics, Nepal's former king Gyanendra's son-in-law Raj Bahadur Singh was arrested by police from a Kathmandu nightclub for drunken and disorderly behaviour.

Singh, a commoner who married Gyanendra's daughter, Princess Prerana, in 2003, was arrested along with over a dozen companions, including six women, for carousing in Club Platinum, the exclusive night club at the five-star Yak and Yeti hotel, after closing hours.- Sify News

I wonder, could the tide be turning again in Nepal? Could a Constitutional Monarchy be making a comeback, like England & Scotland's did in 1660?

I've been worndering the samething. I generally don't follow the news regarding Nepal, but I'm wanting to say that I've heard peoplel aren't happy with the current government. Here's a question: if the people do want a change and want the monarchy back, would the government listen to the people or ignore them?

Prachanda in favour of reinstating monarchy?

Maoist chief Prachnada, who led the decade-long armed struggle to bring down the 240-year-old monarchy in Nepal, wants to reinstate the royalty to save the country from "foreign intervention", a pro-royalist leader claimed on Friday.

When a pro-democracy movement arose in Nepal, King Birendra willingly accepted their demands and moved to a constitutional monarchy, and he was happy to function as such. I heard in some quarters that his consort Queen Aiswarya, Crown Dipendra, and Gyanendra never really accepted this and favoured a stronger monarchy. Sad to say, it was Gyanendra's overreaching and misuse of his powers that caused people to turn against the monarchy, but at the same time the government is utterly incapable of solving the country's problems.

It seems as the politicians are finally 'coming to some senses' now and might, 'just might' have realised the errors of their ways in usurping the King.

Nepal's former Crown Princess launches a charity trust

October 8th Nepal's former princesses embraced their new status as law-abiding commoners with the inauguration of a charitable trust pledged to social service.
Nepal's last king Gyanendra Bir Bikram Shah has inaugurated the Himani Trust, a non-profit charitable organisation started by his daughter-in-law, the former crown princess Himani Rajya Laxmi, in collaboration with six more women, including his daughter and three nieces.

The trust was formally registered with the district authorities last week even as Himani, a scion of the former Indian princely state of Sikar, celebrated her 35th birthday.

The mother of three, one of the most non-controversial and popular members of the royal family, had been among the first to settle down to a changed way of life since the abolition of monarchy, taking her children to the cinema during their school vacation like any other ordinary mum, going paragliding and being the chief guest at a pageant.- SiFy.com
