Thailand goes Pink

A pink fashion craze! Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej has sparked a pink fashion craze. Clothing stores in the country have seen a rush to buy pink shirts after the King left hospital last month wearing both a pink shirt and blazer. Pink first became an important colour for him earlier this year, when royal astrologers determined it was a good colour for his health.

Now people believe that wearing pink brings luck to the king. So all of them are wearing pink! The world's longest serving monarch, King Bhumibol is regarded by some as semi-divine and his picture hangs in most Thai homes.

The King, who has traditionally always worn dark suits in public, has now also taken to wearing a range of other brightly coloured items.
