Royalty from across the nation will gather in Bandung this weekend to attend the second national gathering of kings and sultans across the archipelago.

“The kings and sultans will not engage in political talks,” the head of the gathering’s working committee, Sultan Sepuh IV PRA Arief Natadiningrat from the royal house of Cirebon, said Thursday in Bandung.

Arief said some of the royals had arrived in Bandung to attend a dinner hosted by West Java Governor Ahmad Heryawan scheduled for Friday at Bandung’s Gedung Sate.

Hundreds of kings, sultans, crown princes and princesses from local kingdoms across Indonesia are expected to attend the gathering dressed in traditional royal attire.

The gathering first took place in August 2009 and was opened by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the Presidential Palace in Jakarta.

This second gathering is scheduled to be opened by Vice President Boediono, news portal reported.
