The former king and queen, accompanied by Paras's three children, flew to the Thai capital at 2:25 pm on a Thai Airways flight.
Before flying to the Thai capital, the former king thanked the crowd of mostly pro-royalists and well-wishers gathered outside the Departure Hall of Tribhuvan International Airport for the support and concern they have shown over his son’s health.
Paras is in a state of coma and doctors tending to the former crown prince say there has been no significant change in his health condition.
Dr Kunchit Piyavechviratana of the Samitivej Hospital said Tuesday that Shah's health condition remains "very critical, but stable".
Meanwhile, Paras’s wife Himani is already in Bangkok to tend to her husband. nepalnews.com
