An official at the Phuket office of the Public Relations Department told The Phuket News today that the books will be available only at Provincial Hall, and only on June 3, from 8:30am to 4:30pm.

Meanwhile, many private businesses and enterprises are expected to host their own activities in honour of the auspicious occasion.

“All government agencies are asked to adorn their buildings in yellow as well as purple (the royal colour of the Queen).

“This includes cloths and lights, and setting up images of Her Majesty where people can pay their respects,” he said.

Local administrations were also asked adorn major roads through their areas with yellow and purple decorations, and images of Her Majesty.

“Government officials attending the ceremonies on June 3 must wear their white uniforms, while the general public is asked to yellow,” V/Gov Prakob said.
