HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn did so many greatly projects for her people.In fact all the royal's family usually do many projects for Thai people also.And I'm sure it's becaused we have a greatest hero to follow...HM The King Bhumibol Adulyadej and HM The Queen Sirikit both of HM King and Queen are always do for the people and don't need anything back for,only happiness thing for The royal family is to see all Thai people can stand by our own leg and have a happiness life and live for make good things for the country and for the world.Like they always do.

4) When the crown prince becomes king, will princess srirasmi become queen?
For the succession,will be.

1) Do the thai people like the crown prince?
Well,It's hard to answer to this since Thai people hold a different opinion.Me myself i can say that i respect the whole royal houshold but the prince has too much affairs with many women and has numerous illegimate children,plus There are many rumours about his bad behaviors which i can't state here in Public
Quote:
)2. Do the thai people like the crown prince's new wife?
Well,Let's say that we can accept her since she is his second wife but there are numerous rumours about her past and background which why we have to keep our mouth shut.
Quote:
3) Is Princess Sirindhorn role similar to crown princess?
I presume she is like the female hier of the crown.Something like that.She did achived the title when The crown prince hadn't yet remarried(and had only 2 daughter) so i guess that the King might think that The princess would be suitable to rule too.This i'm not quite sure.
Quote:
4) When the crown prince becomes king, will princess srirasmi become queen? Or princess consort?
Yes,but you know.This we can't repete in Thailand.....'coz you know...speaking of the king pass away is too greive to say.
Quote:
5) Who are the 3 princess on the left in this picture? http://img153.imagevenue.com/img.php...th_107_UKP.jpg
The extreme left is Princess Siripachuthaporn,the second left is(i admit i can't see her face properly)Princess Patcharakitiyapa and the 3rd left is princees Siriwanwaree.

I am not speaking on behalf of that thai people.So it's what i think that really go on thai people's mind.:)

Quote:

Thank you we are pround too.:)

To Peggy:

1) I think the crown prince had 5 children with a common law wife. Or did he have more children than this? Can you tell us in general why thai people have their views of the crown prince?

2) Can you tell us in general the background of the princess consort? The story is that she met him when she was working for him and they have known each other for 10 years. Is there more to this story?

I can't think of one person I know who is from Thailand and I have so wanted to ask questions about this Royal Family.
First, I wonder what kind of government Thailand has and what powers the King has?
- Thailand is a democratic country.We have the constution which states the power of the king and the gouverment.The king has no right to use the power directly since 1930.He must use it through the courts,the gouverment and the parliament but i can see that you must think that he has the absolute power since he seems to do a lot of things.I can say that he can just stay on the throne and do nothing since he has nothing to do to rule the country.Instead he went out to solve the people's problems and gave a numerous useful project to help them.That's why he is so beloved.In the description of the constitution,The King may give advises to the gouverment which they can ignore but now that he is so beloved,the gouverment has to come to ask his advises before they process anything.
Quote:
What role does the Queen play -- does she do humanitarian work or is she in the "background" so to speak? Is she also highly regarded by the Thai
people?
- You may think she is a minor role in the household.I can say that she is honored as much as the king but you may not know since her celebration (12/08) is not widely know here but only in Thailand.She poppularise the king's projects and even has her own helpful projects for thais.
Quote:
What kind of people are the Crown Prince and his wife?
-This i have already answer.
Quote:
Are they also thought to have the kind of integrity the King does?
- Well,They did help the king and we pay respect to him as well,but somehow his integrity his merciness and his kindness don't show as much as the King.So all i can say is he is respectable(and that's all.)
Quote:
I have been struck by the warm hospitality of this royal family to all their royal visitors
- Thank you,Our tradition is to treat the guest better than treat ourself and God know how delighted we are to recieve a guest.
Quote:
-- they have been actively involved in making their guests feel at home from the arrival ceremony right through their involvement in all aspects of the two day festivities
-As i have aswered above.
Quote:
-- is this typical of Thai royalty or is this particular to this royal family? -- is it typical of the Thai people?
-well,i cannot comment on other royalties but let's say that they recieve guests as warmliest as they could.I can say it because i have seen many has come up and gone away too delighted for words.
Quote:
How prominent is the practice of Buddhism in Thailand's culture? The king made several references to Buddhist tenets in a couple of speeches I read and seems to be very influenced by this religion/philosophy -- is that so?
Yes,we are influenced by the Buddhism since 97% of Thai people is buddism.The King is the defander of the religion.The gouverment also support the people to use the buddism practise in thier life.You may have heard that Buddisme is a peaceful religion(and i don't mean Buddism is the only one)
Quote:
If you can even answer a few of my questions, I'd be grateful. Also, are others interested in these questions or have others? If not, sorry to bore everyone and I'll continue through PM's
Never mind,i like it but remember that i can not answer this question on behalf of my country.What i state here is what really going on most of thai people's mind.Thank you:)

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions, Peggy. I have had no knowledge of the Crown Prince before this. I did think it was interesting that - through photos - Princess Sirindhorn seemed to have warm relationships with several of the visiting royals but I didn't pick up on that with the Crown Prince. Having read your description, is the Crown Prince a bit of a disappointment to his parents? Will he necessarily become the next King or could Thailand have a Queen in Princess Sirindhorn -- who seems to do an exceptional amount of good work?

Princess Sirindhon is also most beloved in Thailand since she is so kind and so friendly.She did many great jobs alongside the king and has made a good relationship btw our country and the others by visiting them(while the crown prince usually doesn't as much).She is also more popular that the crown prince bacause of her kindness,her smiling her wisdom and her sincererity.

This i do not know..but hey,if your son had been like him.What were your feelings toward him then?

Well,there has been much dicussions about this in Thailand but the solution seems so unclear.Since the crown prince is here to stay and Princess Sirindhorn has the right too.

No she isn't. Her title is Princess. Technically the system is quite different. To be a the Crown princess, her title would have been started with "Somdej". In Thai royal family, its rare that a princess consort would get such title. In the old days, even the title princess consort would be divided into tiers e.g. those that came from royal descent, courtiers, civilians etc.

In my opinion, if her (Princess Srirassami) title was "Somdej", she wouldn't still be called crown princess either. Princess Soamsavali (crown prince first wife) never was Thailand's Crown Princess either before she divorced the Crown Prince.

Please remember to post a credible source (article, newspaper, magazine, etc as mentioned on TRF Rules & Guidelines) when posting a statement. Any post that is based on a hear-say or speculation is not credible to be regarded as a source, thus, will be removed.

Thank you for your understanding

UK Thais throng to celebration
Princess welcomed by 5,000 people to help honour the King

Over 5,000 members of Britain's 36,000-strong Thai community turned out in the capital on Saturday to celebrate the 60th anniversary of His Majesty the King's accession to the throne.
Her Royal Highness Princess Soamsavali graced the celebrations at Wat Buddhapadipa, in the Wimbledon area.
The Princess's arrival at the 40-year-old royal temple was greeted by cheers from a crowd of school children, civil servants, diplomats, expatriate Thais and well-wishers from around the UK, who formed long lines on both sides of the temple's entrance.

Receiving the Princess on her arrival at the temple were its abbot, Phrarachbhavanavimol, Vikrom Koompirochana, the Thai ambassador to Britain, and other high-ranking officials.
"It's a great pleasure to be able to visit the temple, join in this most auspicious event and meet Thais here," said the Princess.

During the ceremony, the Princess conferred certificates to more than 200 outstanding Thais for their contributions to Buddhism and the Thai community. After participating in religious formalities, and despite the sweltering heat, the Princess added to the day's jubilation by going on a walkabout in which members of the Thai community got up close with their princess.

Purple Platinum, I was so intrigued by your post on the Crown Prince's affairs and the way the King dealt with him. I found an article that explains why he was able to have a wife and a lady friend in the 70's while the King (who does not like that tradition) made the rules more modern and as result disqualified the children born out of wedlock from his son's mistress, the actress Yuvadhida Polpraserth.

That was a very interesting article. It answered some of the questions I have had about the Crown Prince. Too bad Sirindhorn can't become Queen -- I would imagine she would be excellent and continue on her father's work.
