Most heart warming news. When the late Andrew Mya Han of the Anglican Church (?) came to London in the 90s His Royal Highness Crown Prince Shwebomin and Royal Burma Society of Great Britain that he founded with an English monarchist friend welcome the Reverend and provided him platform to inform the group about religious freedom in Burma. HRH is a devout Buddhist who supports all religions. HRH also saved the Jewish cemetery. In Washington DC, HRH made a speech to some 1000 people at Arlington on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Orde Wingate.
To many Burmese refugees in Thailand HRH is King of Burma.
HRH has worked from behind the scene since 1988 for his people's freedom, democracy and human right.
HRH's moral, intellectual and philosophical influence on the retired Senior General U Than Shwe is immemse. The father of a Burmese lord and royalist was professor of psychological warfare to U Than Shwe.
Not much about Burma's future king is known to Burmese people because HRH left Burma in 1962 and refused to join the government of the late General Ne Win and his BSPP thugd. HRH was the very first and youngest dissident of Burma agaimst the cruel military communist regime. Today; however, King Shwebomin II's mission is to unite Burma and restore the honour of the Royal Army that is known as " Tatmataw", pronounced " Tatmadaw".
The last king of Burma Thibaw, for whose ascension to the throne some 200 blood royals were massacred in 1879 , causing a very bad karma for Butma, was not blood royal at all; whereas Shwebomin ( Schwebomin in German) is royal blood from both parents.
HRH was stateless for more than 20 years and still had not been back to Burma.
However, HRH continues tirelessly with his endeavours to serve his people. HRH has three masters degrees from top British universities that include Cranfield where he got his MBA in Management.

Correction. HRH left Burma in mid 1961.
The military coup by General Ne Win, whose teal name was exposed as Shu-Maung, took place on 2 March 1962.
On that very day a young Romanian diplomat by the namr Cellic arrived in Rangoon ( Yangon inBurmese).
In the early 1990s he was Romanian ambassador to UK. That's how he met His Royal Highness and his story to HRH.

We bet our Mata Hari Josephene Htoomyat Thuma, of mixed race, mostly Portugese, will conspire to stop her Majesty King Shwebomin II returning to Burma.
Very good girl, Josephene.
