Thanks Waterheart. What's happened to the other Queen ? I know she has been very unwell for many years . . .

Has she been 'dethroned' or do we have 2 Queens now ? ATB Roger

I would assume that she will be the Queen Mother, same as we previously had in the UK

This has happened in Siam/ Thailand before. I agree with you Jivvy. I assume this will be the next title to be bestowed by His Majesty.

I was speaking to some Thai's today about this and they said something like Rama IX queen, rather than Queen Mother. There was more, but not for here.
