It is a sad, sad time for the Cambodian people and for the country that I call home for more than a decade now.

The Royal Carriage carrying the body of His Majesty the King-Father Norodom Sihanouk during the funeral procession last week.

The King-Father’s body lies in state at the Royal Palace. A State Funeral is said to be held after three months.

Tens of thousands flock to the Royal Palace grounds every night and day to pay their respects to His Majesty. They light incense sticks and candles and offer their prayers for his journey to the next life. The sheer number alone will tell you how much the King-Father is loved and respected by the Cambodians, young and old alike.

Here is an article on the life and times of the King-Father Norodom Sihanouk. Please click the highlighted link.
