Princess is visiting Naresuan university in Phitsanulok

Dec 19, 2013

H.R.H Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn is visiting Naresuan University today the 19th of December 2013. She will be presiding over a graduation ceremony, where graduates will receive their diploma’s today. Some of them will receive them directly from the Princess. This is a Thai tradition and a very big day for the students at Naresuan University here in Phitsanulok.

This Royal visit to Phitsanulok has prompted the authorities to decorate the roads and even repair some near Naresuan university. The security arrangements have been elaborate, new and temporary road blocks and diversions were put in place since December 17th 2013.
Royal visits to universities to confer degrees is almost a tradition in Thailand. I would personally think that it brings luck to get a degree given by a Princess. It is a nice way to start a career.
Naresuan University officials are dressed in white which is the government official’s uniforms.
