Thailand’s monarchy could be coming to an end. According to Thailand news reports, the country’s long reigning king Bhumibol is in ill health and has been for sometime following a recent medical procedure. In Thailand, Bhumibol has ruled the country for more than seventy years, and is largely beloved among his peers.
Interestingly, the succession to the throne remains murky. The country’s deputy crown prince is reportedly in line for the throne, but, a problem sits within the fact he’s not as beloved as his father in the country. Thailand has a strict law against bad mouthing the country’s monarchy, which holds prison time.
