Royal representatives from around the world gathered in Bangkok yesterday to pay respects to Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej on the first day of his official, three day funeral ceremony. The king, who is now known as King Rama IX, died October 13, 2016 and was, at the time, the world’s longest serving monarch.
Among the many royal mourners at yesterday’s cremation ceremony, three wore headpieces. Queen Máxima repeated her black open crowned headpiece (see a better view of this piece from its last outing over at this post
) while Queen Mathilde wore a black calot hat with textured side trim. This piece doesn’t match with other black calots in Mathilde’s wardrobe so I can only assume it is new.
Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein wore a black fascinator, presumably of flowers or feathers, tucked into the right side of her hair.
Photos of this event are scarce so instead, I quote our friends over at Luxarazzi
: “There are hours and hours of coverage of the elaborate and fascinating funeral rituals over on Youtube, the royals can be spotted in these ones here and here, for example.
