King Bhumibol thanked well-wishers for their blessings on his birthday after HRH Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn read out a statement in honour of the King, followed by statements from Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and House Speaker Chai Chidchob.

In his brief remarks, he said the nation is unified and peaceful because [the Thai people] adhere to the benefit of the nation in fulfilling their duties.

Every person should pay attention to his or her duties carefully with consciousness. Any action, done carelessly and without caution can cause mistakes and damage.

“All Thais from every sector have to clearly understand their duties. They have to do their utmost to always perform their duties with carefulness and conscientiousness,” the King said.

If there is a lack of conscious [intention], reason and conscience in doing one’s duty, that action may be wrongdoing, causing defilement to themselves and the nation, he added.

Well-wishers, lining the route of the motorcade of Their Majesties the King and Queen and the royal family, passing from Siriraj Hospital to the Amarin Winitchai Throne Hall, waved small flags and chanted “Long Live the King”.

The Royal Guards Trooping the Colour ceremony was performed at the Grand Palace and the morning ceremony included a cannon salute.

Their Majesties left the throne hall at around 11.35am after the ceremony ended.

The Crown Prince will preside over a prayer ceremony at the Temple of Emerald Buddha at 5pm.

The world’s longest reigning monarch was admitted to Bangkok’s Siriraj Hospital on Sept 19 last year with a lung infection and fever and has been under rehabilitative care at the hospital since then. (MCOT online news)
