Princess Bejaratana of Thailand (1925-2011)
King Bhumibol presided over elaborate ceremonies marking the cremation and final interment of his cousin Princess Bejaratana, only child of King Rama VI (1881-1925), who died last summer at 85. The beautiful pictures and video of the events demonstrate the rich colourful splendour of the ancient Thai monarchy and the warmth with which it is regarded by the loyal Thai population. May Her Royal Highness rest in peace.
