^^ 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:

- Bounnhang Vorachith, President of Laos
- Halimah Yacob, President of Singapore and her spouse

- Jean-Marc Ayrault, Former Prime Minister of France and his spouse
- Park Ju-seon, Vice Speaker of National Assembly of South Korea
- James Mattis, Defense Secretary of the United States
- Alan Peter Cayetano, Foreign Secretary of the Philippines

Well, you're not the only one expecting the Crown Prince Couple of Japan to attend the ceremony. Looking at the list alone, i find an implication that many countries are reluctant to send their head of state to the ceremony. Probably because they are not formally invited or maybe there is some political limitations that prevented them to attend. However, i couldn't feel more grateful and respectful for those royals and dignitaries who's attending, they are truly Thailand's friends.

Royal Crematorium is 100% completed, ready for the ceremony:

Something like Rainier's funeral I could see it being a matter of scheduling. As the funeral would have been what a week after he died at most. But the king died over a year ago. Plenty of time for scheduling if Charles would have wished to attend. Charles has met the king as well. Yes, Andrew has been to Thailand for the queen. But funerals are customarily attended by heirs, as seen by the majority of the list. But it would explain why Andrew and not Edward.

Its not the dignitaries in attendance that stands out for me nor is it the pomp and the circumstance and the splendor of the cremation ceremony itself that stands out for me but rather the entire process of what happens when a King of Thailand dies.

We live in a world where someone dies, there is a funeral and then life goes on. To actively witness how Thailand does it over a year's period of time with all the merit making ceremonies, the specific building of a glorious building specifically for the cremation and even the measured, slow paced steps of those in the funereal procession shows to me a deep respect and remembrance of a person that has passed on from our world into the next. It puts a huge emphasis on the spiritual aspect of a person and a deep belief that those that remain can and do actively assist a soul's passage into the afterlife and its continuation.

It really makes me wish that more of our world would take the time and the energies to be more focused on the spiritual aspects of themselves. I will be watching and following the cremation ceremony as much as I possibly can and hopefully with my thoughts centered on the late King Bhumibol, although I've never met him nor know too much about him as a man, my thoughts will mesh with those of Thailand and gently send this soul home.
