The coronation can be on 1 December?

The actual coronation festivities, from what I understand, will not happen until after the cremation ceremony for King Bhumibol sometime in 2018. Like many other monarchies, the King can actually be reigning before being crowned.

When the Crown Prince accepts the National Assembly's offer to become King, the beginning of his reign will be backdated to the death of his father. But the new King will not be crowned until after the funeral of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, that is if the tradition of a coronation is maintained. King Bhumibol Adulyadej succeeded his brother, King Ananda Mahidol, in 1946, but the coronation did not take place until 1950. Most of the kings in the world today are not crowned; succession is confirmed by taking an oath. Accession ceremonies or coronations, where they do occur, are now usually an optional extra.

"Thailand's Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn returned to Bangkok on Friday, just weeks before he is due to ascend the throne, four senior military sources with knowledge of the matter said.
Fresh questions about the succession arose when the prince flew to Germany last month to attend to personal business.
Thailand is making preparations for the prince to ascend the throne on Dec. 1, though a formal coronation will be at least one year from now."

So a new thread "King Maha Vagiralongkorn and family" should be started.
