Thai princess dies at 84
by UPI

BANGKOK -- Thai Princess Galyani Vadhana, the older sister of King Bhumidol Adulyadej, died of abdominal cancer Wednesday at the age of 84.

The princess had been treated for the cancer at Siriraj Hospital since last June, the Bangkok Post reported.

Princess Galyani, who was born in London, studied science, chemistry, the arts, history and languages, and went on to become a teacher, the newspaper said. She also was heavily involved in charitable work, including the Foundation of Voluntary Doctors. In addition, she created her own foundation for funding the studies of gifted young musicians.
