To honour the auspicious holiday, as Her Majesty celebrates her Seventh Cycle birthday, all government offices will close, including Phuket Immigration Office, the Employment Office, the Land Transport Office and all three District Offices in Phuket.

All main bank branches will close, but branches in shopping centres will remain open.

All Royal Thai Police and Tourist Police stations will remain open and some local consulates will remain open to serve their respective citizens.

There will be no ban on the sale of alcohol on Friday, Phuket Provincial Police Commander Col Teeraphol Thipjaroen told The Phuket News.

“The sale of alcohol sale is permitted on Mother’s Day. The alcohol ban is for the major Buddhist holidays only,” he said.

According to an announcement by the Prime Minister’s Office on January 22, 2015, the sale of alcohol is prohibited on five specific religious days: Makha Bucha, Visakha Bucha, Asalaha Bucha Day, Khao Pansa and Wan Org Pansa days. (See story here.)

Also, officials at the Phuket Public Health office told The Phuket News, “We normally only hold a campaign asking people to refrain from drinking alcohol to honour of HM The King on his birthday. There will not be any such campaign for Mother’s Day.”

It is great to celebrate Her Ms Queens birthday, connected with Mother day.
I wish Her Majesty a fine day, and congratulate her with much respect.

I do not understand the main context of the article about alcohol consumption in relation with the Queen's birthday.

Look like thai authorities think more about alcohol ( in a negative way) than the beloved Queen birthday celebration.
Are that not two different matters? 
Funny negative alcohol fascination.

In many countries were are monarchies we celebrate the birthdays of the Queen with a drink and say: ..To the Queen..
Of course, with King's birthday very much respectfully the same.
