As usual, details are sketchy.
Why do we care ? Why are we looking at each words of the Royal Household Bureau’s statements ?
Second, because at his age, anything, even a simple cold, can create great concern.
And third, as everybody know now (let’s hope), the succession of the King will shape the future of Thailand.
So, this is why we have to follow -unfortunatly and even if we deeply dislike the idea- very closely every details about the health of his Majesty.
This is not voyeurism. It’s politics.
