Final farewell to a beloved monarch

King Bhumibol was beloved by Thai people for his selfless, benevolent work spanning 70 years.

The Royal Cremation ceremony for the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand will take place on 26 October.  We join people across the world in bidding him final farewell.  Though he had passed on, King Bhumibol’s legacy endures in the thousands of royal projects he initiated in his seven decades on the throne.  His memory will no doubt live on in the hearts and minds of millions of Thais.
