    He may be king but no other country othern than a third world country like ours will roll out the red carpet for him if he is dressed like this. There is a strict dress code in civil society. Even our veddahs are better dressed.

    Already prepared for the power cut.

    What a pity: he brought only one wife. In the late eighties, in one of the popular tele dramas, the protagonist says that "if a man wants to be a King, it is not enough only to have a following but it is also necessary to have a harem" A real King indeed who would be an inspiration to others who aspire to be Kings!

    He is said to be one of the most corrupted King ever. He owns number of properties and fancy cars whereas his people are living under poverty. One would wonder what are his motives behind the visit.

    What is this dress, Aney. Shame for a king. Cant buy a good shirt even.

    We Sri Lankans are a gentle and warm-hearted people, whether we are Tamil, Sinhalese or Muslims etc. Any visitor is welcome and it is humbling to know that, though we have no dignitaries (except those idiots from the UN etc.) we have visitors from these poorere nations.

    Warm welcome to you, Your Majesties!

    Dear Srilankan beauties! Be Careful about this King! may be he is visiting Srilanka to add one more Queen to his list

    s.m.Hafeel Monday, 13 August 2012 03:42 PM

    Welcome to Srilanka The king and the Queen

    Not like our guys who take legal and illegal wives plundering public money, he takes one at a time. Unfortunately, his youngest wife, 22 had sacked from the palace yesterday after she was caught red handed while enjoying a day out with a king's minister

    Our joker in a clowns costume?

    Prof Hemantha Wickra Monday, 13 August 2012 02:31 PM

    Switzerland king????????????????????????

    Hussain Monday, 13 August 2012 03:40 PM

    This guy is a joke around the world. While his country is one of the poorest, he spends the country's money on luxuries for himself and his wives. Its an open secret he is the last absoute monarch in the world.

    Rate Mahaththaya Monday, 13 August 2012 03:33 PM

    welcome, we have another friend to vote for us at UN next time

    Seyed Monday, 13 August 2012 03:23 PM

    Nice fashion for Sri Lankans.Can promote our own Batiks to the King.He may like to wear few of our Batiks.

    ruvin Monday, 13 August 2012 03:27 PM

    This man comes from one of the most poor nations in the world. He imported something like 20 BMW X-5 jeeps for his birthday while his people starved. I guess our politicians look upto him.

    Wanawasala Monday, 13 August 2012 03:13 PM

    Did all 14 of his wifes come with him or just one ?
