Wikipedia:Wikipedia is correct. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn is indeed titled as Crown Princess. This was by special proclamation by the Thai King. It's a special title for her personally. Thai royal titles have a large range of grades.

The Crown Prince's present wife doesn't have the title Crown Princess as others have noted. As in many Asian or Arab monarchies, titles are not automatically bestowed on the wife of Kings or Princes, unlike European monarchies (usually). So the wife of the Moroccan King is not called Queen. The rulers in the Malaysian states have different titles for their consorts, and for their heirs & their wives.
thanks.. it is very interesting, Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn is Crown Princess.. That does make some interesting discussions, don't you think?

I would like to confirm that the title of Princess Sirindhorn is not the Crown Princess. Her title is "H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn"


On December 5, 1977, She has been elevated from H.R.H. Princess Sirindhorn to the higher rank at H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Siridhorn, But not the Crown Princess. I think it may be the same as the Princess Royal of England


Pls. see the nametag at the recent royal banquet on June 13,2006

So it is certain that the son will inherit the throne? From what has been written about Princess Sirindhorn and Princess ?Chulaborn they seem like they have done alot more with their lives than the Crown Prince has -- do others think that or not?

no, it is not certain and this subject is not to be disscussed in thailand and nobody knows who's going to take the throne either. we need to be aware that the royal family of thailand is quite different and unique.

i don't know if others think or not but they surely don't discuss.

Can you clarify what you mean by "we need to be aware that the royal family of thailand is quite different and unique"? And are there risks to individual citizens in discussing the succession to the throne? You are not the first person to write in such a way that it makes me think it is risky to speculate about this.

I was so sure that I wasn't the first one. Believe me most Thais won't talk about this or even bother to explain to anyone. I'm part Thai myself and I feel uncomfortable talking about this topic like they say Thais have nothing but nice things to say about their royal family and that includes every member.

Sorry if you think I don't try to answer.

Wet season robe: 11 July 2006
His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn places the rainy-season robe on the Emerald Buddha, replacing the summer robe, at the Temple of the Emerald Buddha yesterday, the first day of the three-month Buddhist Lent.

For more clear Infomation, These are the Emerald Buddha's robes for all three seasons. All the robes are made of gold and decorated with diamond and precious gems. The first set of three robe was made during the early of Chakri Dynasty (Between King Rama I-III) and the current set was made to Celebrate the Golden Jubilee of H.M. King Bhumibol

The Summer robe The Rainy-season robe The Winter robe
aiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiii

Thank you for the photos, iparity. The robes are quite elaborate and beautiful. Where is the Buddha housed? In Bangkok? Is the statue open to the public for reverence?

Emily, the Temple of Emerald Buddha is also known as Wat Phra Kew (or Wat Phra Keo). It is situated on Grand Palace of Bangkok. and if i'm not mistaken, the Emerald Buddha has one robe for each season, when they're not used, the robes are stored at the museum of the Grand Palace. The temple is a 'must' when you visit Bangkok, it is very beautiful and always so crowded (you're lucky to catch a glimpse of the Emerald Buddha).

You can read more about the temple at Royal Palaces of Thailand thread.:)

There's also a link from wikipedia.

Thank you, both of you, for this information. If I ever get to Bangkok I will certainly include a visit there. It is interesting to me that the place is always crowded -- that seems to imply a great 'active' reverence for the Buddha -- are the Thai people devoutly Buddhist? or is the crowd tourists?

Iparity, thanks very much for new pictures of Prince Dipakorn. He's such a cutie.. Princess Srirasmi looks beautiful as well.
Amazing how the family keep on wearing yellow shirts after the King's Jubilee. I guess this year, Thailand is really floaded with yellow colours.

Jess, I think we - Thai People - may wear yellow shirt until the end of next year since HM will celebrate his 80th Birthday on Dec 5, 2007.


The celebration activities will be held more and more since his jubilee until his Birthday on this year and finish at the end of next year where we celebrate his 80th Birthday.


For the end of 2006 to the early 2007, there will be a ROYAL FLORA RATCHAPHRUEK 2006, International Horticultural Exposition for His Majesty the King. For more info, you cxan visit the website here -- www.royalfloraexpo.com
