Today, the first of June 2020, marks the 19th Anniversary of the Nepalese Royal Massacre, when 10 members of the Nepalese Royal Family were allegedly killed by Crown Prince Dipendra during the annual family dinner, also allegedly due to a dispute about his marriage on the first of June 2001. In the documentary (below), members of the royal family, including those that were shot, describe the events which led to the deaths of the then reigning King Birendra and Queen Aishwarya and their three children and led to the accession of the King’s brother Gyanendra, who reigned until the abolition of the monarchy in 2008. There is a wide controversy regarding the massacre, with many Nepalese people refusing to believe that the popular Crown Prince was responsible, instead citing Maoist agents, as well as Indian, Chinese, and US intelligence agencies behind the attack.
