KING'S DIAMOND JUBILEE / ROYAL BARGE PROCESSION

Thousands watch Chao Phraya drill



Thousands of spectators lined the banks of the Chao Phraya river yesterday for the first dress rehearsal of the Grand Royal Barge Procession, which is to be held on June 12 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of His Majesty the King's accession to the throne. The actual procession on June 12 will be viewed by Their Majesties the King and Queen and royal guests _ the monarchs and heads of state from 26 nations _ at the Royal Navy Institute (Ratchanavik Sapha), situated by the Chao Phraya.

(...)

A total of 2,082 oarsmen rowed the 52 traditional-style barges, four of them major royal barges _ the Suphannahongsa or Golden Swan, the Narai Song Suban King Rama IX, the Anantanagaraj or Multiple-Headed Naga, and the Anekajatibhujonga or Innumerable Naga Figures. There are 12 barges with animal figureheads and 36 smaller ceremonial barges.
By 5.30 pm., the procession had arrived at the Royal Navy Institute as scheduled, with the 45-minute boat song describing His Majesty's contributions to the country, the beauty of the barge procession and the beauty of Thailand.

About 20,000 krathongs and 600 floating lanterns will be launched on the night of June 12 to give Their Majesties and the royal guests a splendid view before leaving.

Monarchs from Brunei Darussalam and Malaysia to Take Part in the Sixtieth Anniversary Celebrations of His Majesty’s Accession to the Throne
(28/5/2006)

Monarchs from Brunei Darussalam and Malaysia will visit Thailand in person to join the 60th anniversary celebrations of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s accession to the throne in June. Both countries are Thailand’s ASEAN partners and their monarchs have close relationships with Thailand.

As a prosperous oil and gas producing country with a small population ruled by His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the 29th of an unbroken line dating back 600 years, Brunei Darussalam is a stable, healthy, and hospitable society. Aged 60, the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam completed his studies at Sandhurst Royal Military Academy in the United Kingdom. He ascended the throne in1967. In addition to being head of state, the Sultan also serves as the prime minister, defense minister, and finance minister. He has paid several visits to Thailand, and among the visits were two state visits as guest of His Majesty the King in 1988 and 2002.

Aged 63, His Majesty Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Ibni Al Marhum Tuanku Syed Putra Jamalullail, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia, ascended the throne in 2001. Like the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam, the monarch of Malaysia graduated from Sandhurst Royal Military Academy in the United Kingdom. He paid several private visits to Thailand, but has not paid a state visit here since his ascension to the throne.
