Thousands of Thai royalists dressed in black on Monday to bid a final farewell to princess Bejaratana. The princess died in July 2011 of septicaemia and was cremated in Bangkok on April 9, 2012.

During the royal ceremony, Thai soldiers in traditional dress pulled the royal chariot carrying the princess' urn in a procession through the streets of the capital. Members of the Thai royal family attended the cremation.

Princess Bejaratana was the only child of King Rama VI and a close cousin of the current king, Reuters reports.
