"The queen was held upright in her seat by an attendant sitting behind
her and another crouching at her feet, to prevent her keeling over in
the vehicle. . . . The most haunting images of the day were photographs showing Sirikit
gazing uncomprehendingly out of the van’s window, her face frozen in an
eerie rictus that was probably supposed to be a smile."
