Will the CP in that year of mourning act as Regent? When the Queen of Denmark or the King of Norway leave the country the respective CPs act as Regents even if the monarchs are just 1 or 2 days absent, or if they are unable to perform as Regents others will be named to do the job. But it is unthinkable in european monarchies that no one is in charge! Aren´t the Thai people afraid that the country without any "captain on deck" is in danger to become instable or the monarchy will be weakened?

It is my understanding that the President of the Privy Counsel is acting as regent at this time. There's more information and discussion here:

Succession to the Thai Throne

And here's a movie clip/slideshow with images throughout the life of the late King (he also composed the music):

Thank you for those galleries of pictures. I find it so touching that even the news feeds and websites honor his late Majesty by presenting whatever they have to present in black and white as a sign of mourning.

What's really interesting to see is that all the local magazines are dropping their title mastheads on covers to below images of the King -- the highest possible form of respect (as can be seen in this example):

That really is amazing. I think it would be wonderful if the rest of the world looking on, especially in the West, could learn from these examples of showing deep respect, admiration and even love for their people.

Death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej: October 13, 2016

I totally agree, Osipi. But this kind of respect must be earned, and not prescribed.

Today is a very important day here. With it being a long weekend, hundreds of thousands of mourners are expected at Sanam Luang, the public grounds at the Grand Palace. There will be a mass singing of the King's Anthem this afternoon, with a documentary being made of it by a famous Thai director/producer, who himself is from a Royal blood line (Prince Chatrichalerm Yukol). It should be spectacular and very moving. Fortunately I understand/speak Thai, so I look forward to following the proceedings on television.
