Thai Princess Ubolratana and her daughters Srikittiya Jansen and Ploypailin Jansen preside a one-year tsunami memorial ceremony at Bang Niang beach near Khao Lak in Pang-nga province, southern Thailand Monday, Dec. 26, 2005. The world remembered the fury of the Indian Ocean tsunami that one year ago Monday swept away at least 216,000 people in 12 countries and laid waste to entire communities in one of the worst natural disasters in memory.

Princess draws inner strength from memories of Khun Poom

Princess Ubolratana yesterday urged people who lost loved ones in last year's tsunami to take strength from the memory of those they held so dear. At the tsunami memorial service in Phangnga, the princess said she had transformed the memories she had of Khun Poom Jensen, her only son who was killed in the tsunami in Phangnga province, into a form of inner strength to help her carry on and carry out work for the country.
(...)
``Like them, Nong Poom, my beloved, is always in my heart. The thought of Nong Poom is turned into willpower. Nong Poom wants his mum to work for the country and mum intends to do that. Mum will not go anywhere,'' Princess Ubolratana said.

I really applaud all persons like the Royal Family of Thailand who in one way or another are still standing strong and have remain courageous after the tsunami that hit the areas near the Indian Ocean.

We will always remember all those who died and the victims of the said calamity.

I got a link of an article from thesunrunner.com
I hope this article could give us a deeper insight on Princess Ubolratana and his great love for his son, the late Khun Poom Jensen.

Thank you, paulette! :) :)
I think it's always a shame that the Thailand RF don't get as much coverage as their european counterparts. They are dedicated and hard-working royals, who seems to serve their people to its fullest.

The village is on a 707-rai land plot donated by Her Majesty the Queen. The Queen gave 20 million baht to buy the land on which houses for widows of men killed in separatist violence would be built. "Stay together and help one another as there are only women in the village," the princess told the widows.

28 Foreign Monarchs Invited To Thai King's Diamond Jubilee

By D. Arul Rajoo

BANGKOK, Jan 14 (Bernama) -- The monarchs of 28 countries, including the Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia, have been invited to attend the 60th anniversary celebrations of King Bhumibol Adulyadej's accession to the throne in June this year.

The other countries include Bahrain, Brunei, Bhutan, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Holland, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Swaziland, Tonga, the United Arab Emirates and Britain.

Deputy Prime Minister Surakiart Sathirathai said the foreign monarchs would join the major events in Bangkok marking the Diamond Jubilee on June 12 and 13.

"Letters of invitation were signed by the Prime Minister and sent to heads of the governments of those countries in December 2005, asking them to convey the invitation to their head of state," Surakiart said.

Born in 1927 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the United States, King Bhumibol is the longest-reigning monarch in Thai history, as well as in the world. He was crowned on May 5, 1950, four years after he actually assumed his kingship.

Surakiart said among events lined up to mark the historical event are paying of tribute to the King at Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall, exhibition featuring his activities and projects during his reign at the Royal Thai Navy Convention Hall and a royal barge procession on the Chao Phraya River.

On June 13, the King will host a banquet for the foreign monarchs at the Chakri Throne Hall within the Grand Palace where a representative of the foreign monarchs will give a speech expressing best wishes to King Bhumibol.

"The celebrations of his Diamond Jubilee are extraordinary and rare. Many countries are also excited about the celebrations," said Surakiart.

He said the event would be televised all over the world, adding that he believed the world would be interested in the major gathering of the 29 monarchs, which would be a rare occasion.

The Thai government has embarked on many events throughout the year to celebrate the anniversary.

In June, 9.9 million commemorative bank notes, worth 60 baht each, will be printed while three sets of commemorative stamps will be issued on May 5, June 9 and Dec 5, with each set comprising one million stamps.
