Thailand mourns the
passing of HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana
Her Royal Highness Princess Galyani Vadhana, the elder sister of HM the
King, died on Wednesday January 2. She was 84 years old.
HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana had been hospitalized since June last year, after
doctors found she had abdominal cancer. In a statement issued hours before her
passing, the palace said that Princess Galyani’s kidneys were not functioning
and her breathing had weakened. According to the Royal Household Bureau’s 39th
statement, even though all possible care had been given by the team of Royal
Physicians, Princess Galyani’s condition gradually declined and she succumbed at
2:54 on the morning of Wednesday January 2.
