It’s all in the mother.
Princess Srinagarindra, the mother of two kings. Life was so hard on her, Parents died when she was 9. She went to the palace because her relative was a nanny there.
She was destined to become a maid but her love for reading, learning and education sent her to a higher place in this life of ours.
She was sent to the states to study nursing and met prince Mahidol Adulyadej who was studying medicine.
They got married in 1920 and prince Mahidol died with kidney failure in 1929, leaving her with 3 kids to raise on her own.
King Ananda, her oldest son was shot and died in 1946.
What is wrong! Why everyone around her dies. Her parents, her husband, her son. What kind of a curse is that!.
I tell you what. That lady was a decent, good woman. She cared about people. Her heart, love, devotions and charities for the poor, touched everyone in Thailand.
King Bhumibol Adulyadej became the People’s king because of his mother. Thai kings before king Bhumibol, were untouchables and unreachable.
That small size woman impact on Thailand’s monarchy was huge. She single-handed saved the monarchy by giving Thailand, a King during that turbulence time that will be remembered forever for his down to earth personality, love and caring for his people. All these good traits came from her teachings to her kids about manners, respect to older people, spirituality and religion. She was a good mother.
That’s what the Thai royals call “commoner” but the people of Thailand called her “Heavenly Royal Mother”. She is “Heavenly Royal” to me.
If you wonder why Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn “Sia O” is acting like that and out of control. It’s “all in the mother” who is his mother? Queen Sirikit. I am not going to talk here about her love affair with Colonel Narongdej Nanda-photidej or about her involvement in Thailand politics or inciting 2006 coup or trying to run the country, because she is “Royal”. Her father was a royal prince. She has royal “Gold” blood.
I am talking here about a commoner with “Red” blood who is “Heavenly Royal”.
