  • Description

    PRINCESS ALEXANDRA OF BRITAIN ARRIVED IN BANGKOK ON NOVEMBER 22 DURING HER ASIAN TOUR, JUST IN TIME TO JOIN THE KING AND QUEEN OF THAILAND ON A RIVER CRUISE TO NONBURI, ABOUT 25 MILES NORTH OF BANGKOK.

    THE RIVER CRUISE IS CONSIDERED A CHARMING TRIP THROUGH TROPICAL THAILAND AT NONBURI THE PRINCESS AND THE ROYAL COUPLE WERE RECEIVED BY A TEAM OF LOCAL GIRLS WITH FLOWERS.

    THE OCCASION WAS ALSO COINCIDED WITH A LOCAL EVENT - LAUNCHING OF KRATHONG (LIGHTED CANDLES ON A DECORATED FLOAT) ON THE RIVER. THIS IS LIKE THROWING COINS IN A FOUNTAIN FOR GETTING WISHES FULFILLED.

    THE PRINCESS WAS PRESENT AT THE LAUNCHING OF KRATHONG.

    THIS IS THE SECOND VISIT OF THE PRINCESS TO THAILAND AS THE GUEST OF THE KING AND THE QUEEN. SHE HAD JUST COMPLETED A EIGHT-DAY VISIT TO JAPAN AND EARLIER WAS IN HONGKONG FOR TWELVE DAYS ON THE CURRENT TOUR.
