ThaiPrincess, Asian film stars visit Dalada Maligawa | Local
Being on par with the Sri Sambuddhathva Jayanthi celebrations taking place in the country, a crew of popular film stars escorted by Princess Mom Luang of Thailand’s Royal family visited the sacred temple of the tooth at Kandy today. They were warmly welcomed by the chief incumbent of the Sri Dalada Maligawa Diyawadana Nilame –Nilanga Dela. The crew took a visit to the special places at the Maligawa and worshiped the Sacred Tooth relic. After that they visited the newly opened International Buddhist Museum and were delighted to see the demonstrations of their own countries displayed in the museum. The Thai princess and the crew also had a mutually prospective discussion with Sri Lanka Tourism Promotions Bureau’s Managing Director Rummy Jauffer about promoting Sri Lanka as an attractive film destination. The crew received warm hospitality by the Mahaweli Reach Hotel .

Monarchy in spotlight: tensions that threaten new turmoil in Thailand - Asia, World - The Independent
Thailand's monarchy, for decades presented as the glue that has held the country together through turmoil and strife, is described as being disorientated and deeply divided, in secret diplomatic cables revealed yesterday.
The ailing 83-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who has long been the focus of speculation about his health, has lost much influence to Queen Sirikit, deemed to have been distant from him for many years and who has indicated support for the opponents of the former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra. Within the palace walls and beyond, there is deep anxiety over the issue of succession and whether the King's unpopular son, the Crown Prince, or his more popular daughter, will assume the throne when he dies.

King's failing health, and his $30B fortune, puts Thailand in jeopardy
On his own private floor in this hospital on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, the 83-year-old king has battled Parkinson’s, depression and a series of strokes since being admitted here in September 2009.
[...]
Handley’s book, which is banned in Thailand but widely available in photocopy form on the street, chronicles a dysfunctional royal family that would rival any from Shakespeare’s best historical plays: a good king, the plotting wife, a flawed son who is the heir apparent — who bizarrely made his pet dog an air marshal in the Thai Air Force — and a beloved princess who, according to sources, will flee to China the moment her father dies.
