I've also been watching the videos and following what goes on. I have to say that it really impresses me the amount of work that goes into preparing for this cremation ceremony. From the slow, measured steps of those that will be in the procession, to the exquisite artwork that has gone into the royal pyre and all the rites and rituals that has been performed in the late king's memory is so extraordinary and something I don't think I've ever witnessed before.

Thank you to all that have been keeping us updated on this ceremony to honor and respect a very beloved king.

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.

^^ 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:
