King Bhumibol's 60 years on the Ananda throne

King Bhumibol Adyuladej of Thailand is the worlds longest reigning monarch, second longest reign would be that of Her Majesty the Queen of England. Both for whom i have the greatest regard. Perhaps if they were not the staunch,dutiful monarchs that they are they would not have reigned so long!
Anyways just posting some fabulous colorful pictures that archive this great occassion that took place in 2006. Long Live the King! for God alone knows what happens after him....

Pic 1: Thai's celebrating on the streets of BKK their Kins long reign
Pics 2 & 3: Official pictures of the coronation gathering of royal heads from across the globe - a real treat for royal watchers.
