Following the death of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, Thai-language Facebook posts repeatedly shared a photo alongside a claim it shows the late monarch wearing brooches featuring portraits of the late Thai King Rama IX and King Rama V. The queen and King Rama IX forged a friendship while they reigned over their respective kingdoms. But historians told AFP the photo shows the late queen wearing brooches featuring images of her father King George VI and grandfather King George V.
