(Updated 9:36am 4th May 2012)

It sounds like a scene from 'The King and I' a Dorchester couple have been guests of honour at a coronation in Malaysia.

Ron Kirby and his wife Carole were personally invited by His Royal Highness the Sultan of Kedah, who's now the King of Malaysia.

Mr Kirby was guardian to the King's two daughters when they were at secondary school in England.

He was awarded a knighthood in Malaysia in 2008 for his 'invaluable services' to the sultan.
