The Cabinet on Tuesday announced that June 3 – Her Majesty Queen Suthida’s birthday – would be a national holiday, starting from this year onward.
The announcement was made by Nattaporn Jatusripitak, spokesperson for the deputy prime minister in charge of economic affairs.
The proposal from the Secretariat of the Cabinet for the Cabinet’s declaration was made in response to a royal command from His Majesty the King.
The government next week will clearly set out activities to honour the Queen, besides the traditional merit-making and alms-offering ceremonies for such occasions, Nattaporn added.
