TM the King and Queen return to Klai Kangwon Palace amid warm greetings


BANGKOK, 15 September 2014 – Throngs of loyal subjects lined the street to greet Their Majesties the King and Queen as they traveled from Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok to Klai Kangwon Palace in Prachuap Khiri Khan province today. 

After having received treatment at Siriraj Hospital for more than one month, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej was seen donning a yellow jacket, with Her Majesty Queen Sirikit on his side, as the royal couple was departing the hospital in the late afternoon for Klai Kangwon Palace in Hua Hin. Royal physicians and nurses as well as public members were present to see them off.

Their Majesties appeared refreshed and smiled and waved at the crowd, who chanted “Long Live the King and Queen” in unison until the royal motorcade set off.

The seaside town of Hua Hin also resounded with cries of “Long Live the King and Queen” at around 7 pm when the royal vehicles were seen making their way down Phetkasem Road towards Klai Kangwon Palace. Crowds of people overwhelmed both sides of the road for as far as two kilometers leading to the palace.

Upon arrival, Their Majesties were welcomed by the governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan, members of the Provincial Red Cross Chapter, the mayor of Hua Hin, civil servants, students and the general public.

On August 6 this year, His Majesty the King left Klai Kangwon Palace in order to receive physical examinations at Siriraj Hospital on an appointment with the royal doctors. His Majesty was then admitted after inflammations were detected. He had been recuperating at the hospital until he was discharged today.
