President Halimah Yacob of Singapore will join the ceremony next week:
What surprises me the most is the fact that Ministry of Foreign Affairs didn't send any invitations to any foreign countries at all but foreign head of states or delegates have to voluntarily ask to join the ceremony themselves, that's weird.

That, I think, is true respect.

^^ You're right, but it just looks weird to me for a ceremony of this scale by not inviting any foreign guests from countries where they have diplomatic relations with Thailand. I'm not sure about the coronation ceremony of King Maha Vajiralongkorn neither, whether the government would invite any foreign guests or not. My guest is that they wouldn't.

Anyway, a few hour ago, installation ceremony of the royal nine-tiered umbrella (Nopphapadon Maha Sawetta Chat) atop the royal crematorium was presided over by HM the King, accompanied by HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn and HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana. This marks the completion of the royal crematorium complex after 10 months of construction:

Sorry if this has already been asked, but what happens to the royal crematorium after the ceremonies?

^^ The whole complex will open to public for one month (according to the current plan) before being completely dismantled.

As I thought, as her scheduled events were removed some time ago, Queen Silvia will represent Sweden at the ceremony.

Is the Prince of Wales attending next week..? I suspect he'd find it fascinating [given his interest in other Faiths]. He will also have met his late Majesty in the past.

Actually, I just did some snooping around and there's no mention of any of the BRF's plans to attend made public yet. My thoughts were along the same lines as yours in that Prince Charles would be the one most likely to attend.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej will be honoured in Stockholm on the day of the cremation ceremony. As a knight of the Royal Order of the Seraphim it is tradition that a Seraphim ringing takes place in Riddarholmskyrkan on the day of the burial.

At 11.55 the Seraphim arms of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (picture in the link) will be taken from the Royal Palace of Stockholm with military honours to Riddarholmskyrkan, where the arms will be placed in the choir for the ringing. From 12.00 an hour of ringing will take place to honour the late King.

The church will open to the public during the event. It will also be possible to express condolences in books that will be placed in the church after the ringing.

Its a lovely turn out, especially since they have to be asked to be invited, not simply accepting invitations. I do wish Charles and Camilla would attend, I think the funeral of a monarch should call for a more senior royal then Andie. Kind of surprised that Andrew and not one or both Wessex is going. But I guess the Japanese crown couple isn't going either, so not simply the Brits.

I think It's just a scheduling issue that prevents Charles from attending. Or at least that's what i hope.

The Duke of York represented his Mother at the funeral of Fürst Rainier III of Monaco too who was the 2:nd longest reigning monarch (after Bhumibol) when he died. He also represented at King Bhumibol's Diamond Jubilee in 2006 so he has met the late King before.

I might be wrong but wasn't Crown Prince Naruhito in Thailand and paid his respect right after the King passed away?

Nope, Crown Prince Naruhito didn't visit Thailand to pay respect to the late King. It was the Emperor and Empress of Japan who made a "personal" visit to Thailand last March (they decided to made a short stopover in Bangkok right after the state visit to Vieatnam). Their Imperial Majesties also had an audience with King Vajiralongkorn.

Here is a list of non-royal dignitaries to attend the ceremony as reported by Thai media:
Quote:
