His Majesty The King of Bhutan received the news of the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand with immense sorrow.
His Majesty, His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo, members of the Royal Family led a group of clergy, senior government officials and the Thai community in Bhutan, in offering a thousand butter lamps and prayers in memory of King Bhumibol at the Kuenra of the Tashichhodzong.

May one king long be remembered for his dedication and devotion to his people and may another king remember to follow in his footsteps.

The Belgian Royal Family offers it's condolences to the people of Thailand: "Deeply saddened by the passing of HM King Bhumibol at the end of a long Reign." Our thoughts go to His family and the Thaï population."

^^ Another monarch that we still highly revere is King Chulalongkorn (King Rama V) as we regard him as "Royal Buddha". He westernized the country, implemented many reforms, ended slavery and, most importantly, helped Siam escape western colonialism at the time (Siam and Japan were the only Asian nations that sustain its sovereignty at that time). During his reign, we acknowledged of electricity, railway, postal service, telegraph, modern water system and etc. for the first time.

I find it quite touching that HM, Queen Elizabeth II has really gone above and beyond the call for condolences to the people of Thailand on their loss of a very, beloved King. To show a physical mark of respect of lowering all Union flags to half mast is indeed a mark of great honor and respect for one that is no longer with us.

It must be hard for someone that has reigned as Queen for such a long time to bear witness to monarchs younger than herself passing away after a long reign themselves but she also realizes the extent of how a nation of people loved and respected their king over a span of many, many years. She also now has attained the rank of being the longest serving monarch in the world.

I think if we look and it most likely will be brought to the attention of us more in the days to come, we will be able to see pictures of HM, King Bhumibol with Queen Elizabeth II spanning many decades.

The then CP was involved in many scandals (including several failed marriages) and showed, more than once, a very eccentric lifestyle - very different from his parents, that´s why.
