Will his funeral be attended by foreign royals? European? Asian? African?

It means Carl Gustaf Rex. All monarches sign with an R after their name as Rex/Regina.

The funeral of his sister Princess Galyani in 2008 was several months after her death. So i think it will be the same for the King.

I'm not sure how things work in Thailand as they haven't had a new King for very long but from what i understand from the funerals of the kings mother (H.R.H The Princess Mother) in 1996 and sister (H.R.H Princess Galyani Vadhana) in 2008, there will be a grieving period for several months until a royal cremation takes place.
Don't know if there was any foreign royals present.

Cremation after several months?
And where the body will be held until the cremation? In a hospital freezer?

Tragic news. My great condolences both to his family and to his people

It seems the wrong time to discus. It does seem siridhorn is better suited than her brother, and well known and seemingly respected. It seems wrong IMO to simply name her regent to her brother. If he isn't fit to be king, she should be queen not regent. But we will see how things in days and weeks to come,

There is no doubt here in Thailand that the Crown Prince will become Rama X -- he has simply requested time to mourn his father's passing properly before being appointed and taking on his role as the new monarch. (In the Palace, behind the scenes, the Crown Prince's staff have already assumed their new roles and responsibilities.)

Meanwhile, a year of mourning has been proclaimed, during which time we are all expected to wear black. And it will take that long (possibly even longer) to prepare for the royal funeral and cremation, which no doubt will be a very extravagant, days-long affair attended by many royals and heads of state. (Several years back I attended the funeral/cremation of Princess Galyani, elder sister of King Bhumibol, a year after her passing, and it was an extraordinary experience executed with pomp and age-old Buddhist rites.)

Anything and everything else is mere speculation that do Thai people no good in this time when they are dealing with such an immense loss.

Maybe a "Succession to the Thai Throne" should be opened, so this thread could be solely about His late Majesty's death, while we can discuss the succession in another thread?

Victoria's Secret, my most humble apologies for my part in discussing things that should not be mentioned at a time of a deep loss that envelops an entire nation. Thank you for reminding me to mind my manners and to be respectful. It is appreciated.

Thank you also for more insight into what happens and when to expect a funeral and a cremation of His Majesty. I look forward immensely to following the proceedings and the traditions and it will broaden my insight into a beautiful culture of a beautiful nation.

King Bhumibol's coronation took place several years after his brother's death to allow him time to complete his studies in Switzerland. In this case, my personal opinion is that we can probably expect to see the Crown Prince ascending to the thrown after the first 100 days of mourning have passed. But he may very well decide to wait until after the funeral and cremation of his father.

I might also add that proper time is required to prepare for a coronation. It also consists of an elaborate series of traditional ceremonies.

I sincerely hope that I am not violating anything that is sacred and meaningful to the people mourning the loss of their beloved king but as The Royal Forums is an international, global society, there will be many such as myself that empathize and mourn the loss of man that has has been beloved by his nation and his people.

In a way to avoid asking questions and perhaps give insight to what will be happening in the next year or so, I've found an article posted on the internet that explains the basics of what happens when a devout man such as King Bhamibol passes on and the deep meaning behind the rituals and the ceremonies that mark his passing.

Again, if this is inappropriate, please ask the moderators to remove it. I am hoping that this maybe will help our global community to perhaps join in mourning with the people of Thailand in their grief. Unless we understand, we cannot begin to truly empathize.
