His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand (1927 – 2016) passed away on 13th October, 2016. He was 88 years old. 

He had a passion for artistic pursuit and known as a dedicated photographer but more importantly he was The Jazz King and at ten years old learnt to play the clarinet. He was a talented prince and similarly mastered the trumpet and saxophone. 

 It would have been an honour for both Elvis and Juliet Prowse to be seated with The King and Queen of Thailand
