HRH Queen Elizabeth II (1926 - 2022)

On behalf of all members of the Anglo-Thai Society I should like to express our deepest condolences following the sad passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Her Majesty the Queen - who dedicated her whole life to Public Service - had the distinction of being the world’s longest serving monarch. A position attained from the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand who also reigned for over seven decades and the two of them formed a close and strong relationship over the years. Something which proved a key factor behind the deep and long-standing bi-lateral relationship.

Our thoughts and prayers are very much with all the members of the Royal Family at this extremely sad and difficult time.

The Anglo-Thai Society was founded in 1962 to foster and celebrate the close and friendly relations that have existed between the UK and Thailand for 150 years. The ATS is a diverse and friendly organisation and membership is open to all who share our values. Throughout the year the society organises various events and activities of interest to our members.

The two principal Anglo-Thai Society events each year are the Summer Reception in June and the presentation of Education Awards for Excellence in November. ATS is extremely grateful to our society patrons, H.E. The Thai Ambassador and the Lord Geddes.
