History of H.M. Queen's Birthday

This holiday marks the birthday of the current queen mother of Thailand, Queen Sirikit.

If August 12th falls on a weekend, the holiday will be observed on the following Monday.

Sirikit was born on August 12th 1932. Sirkit met Rama IX in France in 1946 when he had already become ruler of Thailand. The royal couple were married on April 28th 1950, a week before the King's official coronation.

Across Thailand, buildings are decorated to honour their queen, with the most splendid are in Bangkok, where many buildings and streets are festooned with coloured lights, flowers, and portraits of the queen.

Mother's Day

Mother’s Day was first celebrated in Thailand in April 1950 in a similar fashion to the growing international celebration.

In 1976, the custom of Mother’s Day was changed to August 12th to commemorate the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit.
