  • Description

    King Bhumipol and Queen Sirikit of Thailand flew into Lisbon August 22 for a 3-day official visit to Portugal and were greeted warmly at the airport by President Tomaz, Prime Minister Salazar and leading members of his Government.

    The young King and Queen - at present on an extensive European tour - inspected a guard-of-honour and then received a cheering welcome as they drove through the crowded city streets to the Palais de Queluz.

    During his recent visit to the United States saxophone-playing King Bhumipol played in a private jazz session with famous American musician Benny Goodman. Needless to say all photographers and reporters were excluded. In October the Thai King and Queen will make an official visit to Paris.
