Following the death of Her Royal Highness Princess Bejaratana on 27 July 2011, Thailand is in a period of national mourning. For the 15 days following 27 July, Thai Palace protocol requires that public social events should be low key and restrained.

Please note that in the 100 days following 27 July anyone planning to visit the Grand Palace should wear dark colours or black. 

These adjustment in requirements for entry to the Palace will remain in place until beginning of November.
