Prayers in tribute to Royal Household taking place this Friday


Bangkok – A prayer service is to be staged this Friday August 17 at Dusit Palace in Bangkok in tribute to His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of the Ninth Reign on the occasion of her birthday anniversary, and His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn.

The prayer ceremony is a continuation of the “Dhamma Rachinee” practice initiated by Her Majesty Queen Sirikit.

Participants in the ceremony will receive royally bestowed prayer offerings that they will be able to take home to commemorate the occasion.
