Kannabhorn Bejaratana (Thai: กรรณาภรณ์เพชรรัตน์; RTGS: Kannaphonphetcharat; 12 August 1878 – 31 May 1880), was the Princess of Siam (later Thailand). She was a member of Siamese Royal Family. She is a daughter of Chulalongkorn, King Rama V of Siam. She was given full name from her father as Kannabhorn Bejaratana Sohbhandasaniyalak Akaravorarajakumari (Thai: กรรณาภรณ์เพชรรัตน์ โสภางคทัศนียลักษณ์ อัครวรราชกุมารี)

Her mother was Queen Sunandha Kumariratana, Queen Consort, half-sister and cousin of King Chulalongkorn. She died with her mother and her unborn sibling, drowned when the royal boat capsized while on the way to the Bang Pa-In Royal Palace. Despite the presence of many onlookers, they were forbidden on pain of death to touch the queen, not even to save her life. The grief-stricken King Chulalongkorn later erected a memorial to her and his unborn son at the Bang Pa-In Palace.

The Royal Cremation was cremated together with her mother in Sanam Luang, performed by King Chulalongkorn.
