Her Royal Highness Princess Bajrakitiyabha Narendiradebyavati and Her Royal Highness Princess Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya were also present at the ceremony, held at the Emerald Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram) in the Royal Palace.
The Emerald Buddha is adorned with three different sets of gold seasonal decorations: two were made by Rama I, one for the summer and one for the rainy season, and a third made by Rama III for the winter or cool season.
The decorations are changed by the King of Thailand, or a senior member of the royal family in his stead, in a ceremony at the changing of the seasons – in the 1st Waning of lunar months 4, 8 and 12 (around March, August and November).
