Tried to get more info about who she is (apart from Cambodian princess) by using google and found not much info about her, but my guess is she must be one of King Sihamoni's 14 siblings  Cute.
I wonder when the Cambodian king will be married   Thinking


Cambodian princess Sisowath Chansida (L) throws rice during the annual royal plowing ceremony in Phnom Penh on May 9, 2012. Cambodia's royal oxen refused to eat rice grain on May 9, during a ceremony to predict the country's agricultural fortunes -- prompting fears of a poor rice harvest among superstitious farmers

His father abdicated 2004 for his son.

I'm not gay, says 81-year-old monarch with 14 children

By Alex Spillius in Bangkok12:01AM GMT 25 Feb 2004

King Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia, an 81-year-old father of 14, yesterday surprised his subjects by denying that he was homosexual. His comments came as he underlined his support for same-sex marriage, having seen television coverage of such weddings in California.

In a statement on his website, the king said: "I am not gay, but I respect the rights of gays and lesbians. It's not their fault if God makes them born like that."
He said the statement, posted yesterday, was made in response to an "insulting" email he received from someone called Tom Adams, which presumably accused the monarch of being homosexual after he announced his approval of same-sex unions.
His statement continued: "Gays and lesbians would not exist if God did not create them. As a Buddhist I must have compassion for human beings who are not like me but who torture nobody, kill nobody."  Clapping

King Sihanouk, who is on a routine medical visit to Beijing, is a constitutional monarch with no executive power but is deeply revered. Same-sex marriage is not permitted in Cambodia but homosexuality is tolerated, largely because of Buddhism's inclusiveness.
The royal website - norodomsihanouk.info - has been growing in popularity since its launch a year ago. Only 10,000 people among the desperately poor population of 13 million have internet access, but the site receives 1,000 hits a day, despite the fact that most of the almost daily messages are in French, the former colonial language.

Cambodia's former King Norodom Sihanouk, centre, died of natural causes early Mondayat the age of 89.




Norodom Sihanouk, the former Cambodian king who was never far from the centre of his country's politics through a half-century of war, genocide and upheaval, has died. He was 89. Cambodian government spokesman Khieu Kanharith said Sihanouk died of natural causes early Monday in Beijing, where he had travelled for medical treatment.

Phay Siphan, spokesman for the Council of Ministers, said that Cambodia saw the King Father as a great Cambodian hero who brought Cambodia full independence, peace, national reconciliation and unity. People from all walks of life expressed deep sorrows Monday over the death of the most revered Former King Norodom Sihanouk.
- "The former king was the father of independence, territorial integrity, and national reconciliation and unity," he told Xinhua over telephone.
 
Sihanouk saw Cambodia reel from colony to kingdom, U.S. - backed regime to Khmer Rouge killing field and foreign-occupied land to guerrilla war zone — and finally to a fragile experiment with democracy. Sihanouk was a feudal-style monarch beloved by his people. But he was seldom able to deliver the stability they craved through decades of violence.
 
He abdicated the throne in favor of his son Norodom Sihamoni in 2004.

"A Spectacle of Mourning for a King in Cambodia" The New York Times
http://www.nytimes.com/20...o-king-sihanouk.html?_r=0

Quote
Tens of thousands of onlookers knelt on the roadside with their hands clasped as a funeral procession looped through the city, pausing for an incantation from monks and ending at the site next to the royal palace where the king’s body will be cremated Monday.

Several people fainted in the tropical heat, including the powerful deputy prime minister, Sok An, who was carried away by aides.

The former king died in October at age 89, having ceded what had become a ceremonial throne to his son, Norodom Sihamoni, in 2004. The current king watched the procession from the gate of the royal palace with his mother, Norodom Monineath.


Quote
Mr. Sihanouk's son, King Norodom Sihamoni, cried as his father's coffin left the Royal Palace.

Quote
“Some Cambodians in the countryside like to say, ‘You cannot have a country without a king,’ ” she said.

There was little reference to the darker side of the late king’s leadership: lending his prestige to the Khmer Rouge and helping them come to power. The group’s rule left 1.7 million people dead.

Government announcers eulogized him as a leader who built national character along with factories, schools, roads and hospitals.

“He is the father of integrity and the father of national unity,” said one announcer, whose comments were carried on loudspeakers around the city and on national television, which broadcast the procession.

“He is the best king ever,” the announcer said.

"A taxi hit the vehicle Prince Norodom Ranariddh, 74, and Ouk Phalla, 39, were travelling in, officials say.
The couple were taken to a local hospital in the Preah Sihanouk province, but Ms Phalla died a few hours later.
They were travelling to meet political supporters when the crash happened.
Prince Ranariddh, the half-brother of King Norodom Sihamoni, leads a political party that is contesting next month's controversial general elections."
