  • Description

    Bangkok airport was heavily guarded for the arrival of the Crown Prince, Akihito of Japan and his wife, Princess Michiko.

    The royal couple arrived in Thailand on their way to Jordon, Yugoslavia and Britain.

    Princess Sirindhorn, the daughter of King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, was at the airport to meet the Crown Prince and his wife. Excited school children cheered as the Royal Couple stepped from their plane onto the tarmac.

    More than fifty Japanese residents of Bangkok were at the airport to greet Prince Akihito and Princess Michiko. The Japanese residents, many of them embassy officials, bowed to the Prince as he stepped onto the tarmac.

    Princess Sirindhorn accompanied the Royal couple from the plane to the airport terminal building. One the way, Princess Michiko paused to speak to a group of cheering school children.

    Afterwards Prince Akihito and Princess Michiko were accompanied by Princess Sirindhorn to the Royal Palace where they were the guests of the King and Queen at dinner. The couple spent their night in Bangkok at the Borombiman Building, part of the Grand Palace complex. It was once the residence of the Kings of Thailand, although King Bhomibol now lives at the nearby Chitrlada Palace.
