Could someone let me know why black is forbidden to wear in Thailand. What about funerals?
One newspaper report said the Queen wore black but her dress for the banquet sure looked brown to me and a gorgeous dress I must say, my favorite.

Another thing that I observed and maybe it has been covered before, if so my apologies, but I noticed that the majority of Royal woman did not wear tiaras.

I can only answer your question about funerals as I did see a whole bunch of photos of the funeral of Ubol Ratana's son. All members of the Royal family were dressed in black, so I guess it is permitted for funerals..

Thank you for sharing the pic with us. Khun Mai's grown taller than Khun Ploy now. Both are as stunning as their mother.

Yes, in Thai culture, black wardrobes had been suitable only for sad events like funerals. But nowadays, it has changed. We can dress up in black colour for banquets or in business. However, for happy events such as wedding ceremonies or Buddhist ceremonies, if we wear black colours, we will be justified by other people that we don't have tact.:)

I thought (apart from the yellow suit) that what Lalla Salma wore in Thailand was stunning. Particularly the white kaftan.

STUNNING!!!!

Thai people hold candles as they look at a giant image of King Bhumibol Adulyadej projected on a screen during an event to celebrate the king's 60th years in the throne held at a sport complex in Bangkok, Thailand, on Saturday June 17, 2006. (AP Photo/Sakchai Lalit/Polfoto)



Bangkok, THAILAND: Fireworks light the sky in Bangkok as thousands of Thai well-wishers gathered to mark the 60th anniversary on the throne of revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej, 17 June 2006. Royalty from 25 countries came to Thailand last week for a Grand Palace banquet for the 78-year-old king and other glittering events, including a rare procession of 52 elaborately carved royal barges on the Chao Praya River.

for me salma wasn't by far the most beautiful princess in Thailand ceremony, it's true that she has a pretty shape of eyes, and a nice smile, but she also many features that aren't at all pretty
for me, her face lack of grace ( I saw her by near on TV),
I think also that because there aren't many red-haired princesses and her look is enough theatrical (her hairs and her clothes), journalists focus on her
already, in MRF she isn't the most pretty, for me she is in the best in the fifth position, after Meryem, Hasna, Soukaina and zeineb

Couture of the court

Regal dignity and casual flair mingled memorably in the costumes of Thailand's royal guests

The celebrations for His Majesty the King's 60th anniversary have had Bangkok awash in colour and spectacle. And while his citizens have set the country alight in a blaze of yellow commemorative shirts, the costumes of the visiting heads of state also provided a visual feast, a rare show of royal colour from all over the globe.
The array of regalia on view for this auspicious occasion has made for some fascinating fashion viewing. Many of the images that will remain with us are the more intimate glimpses of the visiting dignitaries in relatively casual attire taking in the sights of the city......................

Lalla Salma always dresses appropriately for the wife of a king, never too casual and smart - even if you don't approve of the colours. It needs somebody with flamboyant colouring like Salma's to be able to carry off such a rich shade of red and those jewels. Redheads are flamboyant to look at, that is part of their charm. Brunette isn't the only type that can look good.

Hi! Everybody!

My name is Chantira. I am Thai.
I am very happy to tell you that HRH Princess Lalla Salma was one of the most popular monarchs in the royal gathering in Bangkok last week. She has all the attributes that make people admire her; her beauty, youth, intelligence, personality. In the official functions, she was stunningly beautiful, and very correct. When she went sightseeing on a private basis, the media also reported that she was very charming, and easy-going. She also observed the muslim traditions very strictly. It was reported that the hotel area where she stayed was all closed off to men. The hotel was requested to send only female staff to serve her and her entourage. In short, everything she did during her stay only endeared her to Thai people.

To do the Princess justice, on the matter of her wearing yellow dresses during the official functions, I think she was being very polite and very correct on etiquette. Yellow is the color of the King of Thailand, both as the color of H.M. King Bhumiphol's birthday (Monday), and the color of the royal standard. As most of you must have seen from the pictures, Thai people are wearing yellow everywhere now. So I think the Princess must have intentionally worn yellow dresses on two occasions as a courtesy to our King, which was really greatly appreciated. :)
