some things are not quite right... i thought Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein is going to accompany her husband, Prince Alois. It seems he arrived alone.
btw, the Crown Prince of Bhutan looks pretty handsome I'm glad some minor royal houses are represented here.

Visiting royals hit J-J market

Shoppers bargaining over prices of crafts and other items at the Thai capital's famous Jatujak Weekend Market on Sunday were stopped in their tracks, so to speak, in surprise at seeing a Moroccan princess shopping there as well.
The market buzzed as the Royal shopper walked down the narrow corridors between stalls of the busy shopping area. The down-to-earth visit by a royal princess not only surprised but delighted vendors and shoppers alike.

Princess Lalla Salma Bennani, 28, the Royal consort of King Mohammed VI of Morocco, is in Thailand representing her husband at the grand celebrations of His Majesty the King's 60 years on the throne.

On the same day the Bangkok famous weekend market also welcomed Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg, another Royal guest visiting Thailand for the grand celebrations honouring the King, but Morocco stole the show.
(...)

Visiting the weekend market was not included in her official schedule, and the press was not permitted to cover the impromptu event. However, the prohibition failed to stop the media's enthusiasm.
Thai silk was among products that interested the Moroccan princess, in addition to ornaments, woven goods and leather shoes. She bought three pairs of shoes and some Thai jewellery at a shop where the vendor said she was overwhelmed by delight, not only by her Moroccan kindness but also by her charm.

(a bit off topic, but i just have to grin a bit.. i was wondering if any royals would visit the famous Jatujak Market - it's a great attraction of Bangkok and they arrived on weekend just in time for it. definitely something should not be miss!)


Foreign royals arriving for celebrations

Denmark's Prince Henrik landed at Bangkok International Airport early Sunday, providing a royal kick off to a busy day of red-carpet arrivals of kings, sheikhs, sultans and an emperor to attend celebrations of the 60th anniversary of His Majety the King's accession to the throne.

Monaco's Prince Albert, meanwhile, was the second royal to arrive Sunday but the "Playboy Prince" opted to fly to Thailand's charming northern city of Chiang Mai, where he was to spend the night before travelling on to the Thai capital.
Organisers said Prince Albert had no planned itinerary in Chiang Mai, a city famed for its beautiful ladies.

Britain's Prince Andrew was the first royal to arrive last week, using the opportunity to preside over various British business and trade functions prior to the celebrations.

On Saturday, Moroccan Princess Lalla Salma and Bhahraini Prime Minister Sheikh Khalif Bin Salman al-Khakifa arrived in Bangkok.

On Sunday and Monday royal arrivals will include Japan's Emperor Akihito and kings, sheikhs, sultans and their representatives from Belgium, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Jordan, Kuwait, Lesotho, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Norway, Oman, Qatar, Spain, Swaziland, Sweden, Tonga and the United Arab Emirates.

Each visiting royal has been provided a special motorcade escort from the airport to their hotels, requiring the clearing of all traffic from the highway.

King promotes 69 monks

His Majesty the King yesterday promoted 69 monks to higher priests' ranks in a series of ceremonies celebrating the 60th anniversary of his accession to the throne. All the monks were from two major Buddhist sects in Thailand _ Maha Nikai and Dhammayutika Nikai _ in which monks follow stricter Buddhist practices.

Commemorative banknotes all snapped up

The commemorative banknotes released for sale to mark the 60th anniversary of His Majesty the King's accession to the throne have all been snapped up by the public, according to the Bank of Thailand. Duengdao Sombutsiri, senior director of the Banknote Management Department, said it took just a few hours to sell the 9,999,999 60-baht notes put up for sale on Friday.
Of the total, nine million notes were allocated to commercial banks, 600,000 to government agencies nationwide, and 300,000 to the central bank for sale.
Each note was sold for 100 baht, with 40% of the proceeds going to royal projects.

Royal Barges highlight Monday celebrations

Commemorative celebrations marking His Majesty the King's 60-year reign will enter the fourth day Monday with a spectacular Royal Barge Procession as the highlight.
To be held from 7.30 p.m. until about midnight on Bangkok's Chao Phraya River, the procession will comprise 52 barges including the four Royal Barges -- Subanahongsa, Anantanagaraj, Anekajatbhujonga, and Narayana Song Suban -- manned by 2,082 Royal Thai Navy crew.

So far UK Press only has the arrival of Haakon and Mette-Marit. I dont think a ponytail was the best choice with the beautiful coat and that pink birdie nesting on the top of her head.

Emperor speaks of Thailand-Japan ties

Emperor Akihito has urged young Japanese expatriates in Thailand to strengthen the long-lived relations between Thailand and Japan as previous generations did decades ago.
The emperor praised Japanese investors entering Thailand in the last decade for their laudable efforts in creating friendship and understanding between Japan and the Thai people, and he said he wanted the new generation of Japanese nationals living and working in Thailand to follow suit.
Emperor Akihito Empress Michiko, met some 200 Japanese expatriates and Thai nationals in audience at a Bangkok hotel Monday morning during their state visit to Thailand to attend the celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of the accession to the throne of His Majesty the King.
