Thailand holds a coronation ceremony for its king upon his accession to the throne. The last such ritual was held on 5 May 1950, upon the accession of the current monarch, Bhumibol Adulyadej. This ceremony included several ancient Buddhist and Brahmanic rites, including the presentation of a nine-tiered umbrella (symbol of royal authority) and other items of the royal regalia to the sovereign. Without this, no Thai king can assume the title of "Phrabat" or use the umbrella.
Bhumibol's coronation began with a ceremonial bath, following which the new king put on the white robes of a Brahmin monk, and had sacred water poured over his shoulders while a "gong of victory" was struck by the court astrologer. Afterwards, he received nine pitchers filled with sacred water, drawn from eighteen different sites in Thailand. The nine-tiered umbrella was then presented, followed by five other items of the royal regalia: the Great Crown of Victory, the Sword of Victory, the Royal Staff, the Whisk of the Tail Hairs of a White Elephant, a Small Flat Fan, and a pair of Golden Slippers. In accordance with Thai tradition, Bhumibol placed the crown upon his own head, then received a special golden Ring of Kingship.
After this, the new Thai ruler seated himself upon the Bhatarabit Throne at the Grand Palace, where he pronounced the Oath of Accession, promising that he would reign for the benefit and happiness of his people. He also poured ceremonial water to symbolize his complete dedication to his royal responsibilities, in accordance with the "Tenfold Moral Principles of the Sovereign": alms-giving and charity, strict moral standards, self-sacrifice, honesty and integrity, courtesy and kindness, austerity in his habits, harboring no anger or hatred, practicing and promoting non-violence, exuding patience, forbearance and tolerance, and displaying impartiality to all. After this, Bhumibol elevated his wife, Sirikit, to be the Queen of Thailand. Finally, the royal couple visited the Temple of the Emerald Buddha where he made a solemn vow to protect the Buddhist religion.

HM King Vajiralongkorn's Coronation - late?

The most recent remarks about the date of the new King's Coronation were made last April 2017, predicting this event before end of this year. Still no announcement is forthcoming about a firm date for the coronation. Also, no explanation has been subsequently given for what is beginning to appear late. Anybody have ideas or comments.

It's quite clear that the coronation ceremony will not likely to take place this year since the royal crematorium exhibition has been extended to December 31.

Bangkok Post: Royal crematorium viewing extended to Dec 31

This was asked by the government to accommodate huge number of crowds who wish to visit the site from all over the country. Hence, the king agreed and granted the permission.

Last time I heard someone talks about the coronation was in mid October that the ceremony might take place around February 2018, but still need to wait for official announcement to confirm the date. One thing I also know so far is that the palace bureau has got everything prepared for the ceremony. It is now a matter of 'when' the king 'wish' to do it.

Thank you Appleich for your update on HM King Vajiralongkorn's Coronation timing. You cite "Last time I heard someone talks about the coronation was in mid October..." can you offer a citation from whom or what public source you got this information. This would allow us a broader basis to further inquire.
I personally find the new reign of HM King Vajiralongkorn will be tremendously significant not only for Thailand, but for all of South Asia politically. Sources of information about actions of the Thai Palace are tightly controlled with little hard facts to reference.

Sorry Daniel d'Evreux, I couldn't provide you the source since it was a tweet from Aljazeera journalist in Thailand, Wayne Hay. I tried to look up on his twitter feed again but that tweet is now gone so you can believe me or not. The most realistic time frame for the coronation ceremony to take place is between January - March 2018. This is Thai court's style, they rarely share private information on the king and his family. Most of us rely on insider's news or even rumors to have an idea on what's going on behind the palace gate.

I will trust in your information on the coronation's estimated span of dates. You are way closer living in Bangkok to what we call where I live "the-Coconut-wireless," aka gossip. I find even guessing when King Vajiralongkorn's in Thailand or Bavaria is a real shot in the dark. I do respect the Thai Monarchy and wish the Thai people and their new King many blessings of the Buddha.

I'm sorry to say this but my expectation wasn't quite right as first sign of coronation delay emerged:

Thai king orders history-themed festival paying homage to past monarchs

Reuters | January 8, 2018 | 4:26 PM

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn has ordered a history-themed festival for the public, a government spokesman said on Monday, as the Southeast Asian nation emerges from a year of mourning for his revered father.

The festival, which will take place at the Royal Plaza, a public square in Bangkok, from February 8 to March 11, will feature exhibitions showcasing the life and work of his late father King Bhumibol and his great grandfather, King Chulalongkorn, who reigned from 1868 to 1910. The festival will include gardens, fountains, and historic-looking structures.

King Vajiralongkorn’s formal coronation is expected to take place later this year and could signal the start of politics following a year of mourning and the late king’s funeral.
