Her Majesty Queen Sirikit,

Today, on August 12th, Mother's Day is celebrated in Thailand, dedicated to the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, the mother of King Rama X.

On the occasion of Mother's Day, the official holiday is moved to Monday, August 14th. Immigration services and government establishments will not be operational.

Born M.R. Sirikit Kitiyakara in 1932, Her Majesty the Queen has captured the hearts of the Thai people through her devotion to improving the welfare and well-being of her subjects. The Queen is perhaps best known for her efforts in reviving many of Thailand's folk arts and crafts.

Her Majesty's SUPPORT Foundation (Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques) has expanded progressively since its establishment in 1976 to include craft shops in the city and popular tourist areas, and two Thai Folk Arts and Crafts Training Centers at Chitralada Villa and at Bangsai in Ayutthaya.
