In a video clip released by the “We Love Chakri Dynasty” Facebook Page, the Princess was seen talking to mourners outside the Grand Palace where His Majesty the King’s body is being kept.
“[We are here] to express condolences because we are a family. His Majesty is our father. He is everyone’s father. We have to extend our support to each other and help each other work and move forward,” she told the crowd.
The Princess also brought food for the crowd.
Her visit and kind words left many overwhelmed. They shouted “Long Live the Princess” as she was about to leave. A woman was heard in the clip wishing her good health, and the Princess was heard replying: “We are very strong. Good luck to everyone.”
The video clip has gone viral.
