Thai Princess Hosts Spainís Queen Sofia in Private Lunch

BANGKOK Ė Princess Sirindhorn, the second daughter of late Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, hosted on Wednesday Spainís Queen Sofia in a private lunch which took place in the royal Grand Palace in the Thai capital, according to diplomatic officials who spoke to EFE.

Sofia is visiting the Thai capital to attend the funeral of King Bhumibol, who died last year.

In the company of her host, Sofia paid tribute to the mortal remains of Bhumibol, which have been kept in the palace complex before they are cremated on Thursday according to Buddhist tradition.

Thai authorities expect more than 250,000 people will attend the funeral on Thursday.

Queens Maxima of the Netherlands and Silvia of Sweden, Prince Andrew the Duke of York and members of various Asian royal families, like Bhutan, are also scheduled to attend the funeral.

Bhumibol died on Oct. 13, 2016 at the age of 88 in the hospital where he had been admitted almost uninterruptedly for more than a year after a reign of seven decades, which had made him the longest-serving monarch in Thailand.

The Spanish and Thai royal families have for many years maintained close ties, which have included visits to Spain by King Bhumibol and Queen Sirikit, and by King Juan Carlos, who abdicated in 2014, and Sofia to Thailand.

Vajiralongkorn, Bhumibolís only son, succeeded him and took on the title of Rama X.
