I would expect HRH the Prince of Wales to represent HMQ at the late Kings Funeral.

Today we see Her Majesty Queen Sirikit for the first time in almost a year. She is still concious but does not look well. This proves that speculation from many people over the year was wrong.

Oh, this is sad news. May he RIP. It seems like he was widely well-respected in Thailand.

Appleich, thank you so much for sharing your personal photographs with us as you went among the thousands of mourners.

To me, watching the videos and seeing the personal photographs, it almost makes me feel as if I am a part of a global remembrance of a special human being.

It's been a busy week of Medical Appts for me, & the place I stayed at, the WiFi was down. I've been catching up since getting home Thursday & only learned of His Majesty's passing a few hours ago.

My deepest condolences to the Thai Royal Family, the People of Thailand, but especially our Thai Members here at TRF, as you are our direct link to all things Royal in Thai Society & keep us so well informed about the Thai Royals. We will all be deeply indebted to you over the coming weeks, as you explain the various Ceremonies & Buddhist Rites that will be taking place, & I think I'm safe in speaking for all of us in thanking you in advance for all you are and will be sharing w/us.

May His Majesty Rest in Peace.

May the Transition be a smooth and peaceful one.

^^ Thank you and you're welcome, Tiggersk8.

Their Majesties the King and Queen of Bhutan with His Royal Highness Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck have arrived in Thailand to join the royal merit ritual ceremony at the Grand Palace :

" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350">

Today huge crowds lined up at the Grand Palace to sign a condolence book and pay respect to His Majesty the late King Bhumibol (in front of a portrait) :

Bangkok Metropolitan Authority (BMA) allows mourners to stay overnight at the Royal Ground. BMA will provides tents (in case of raining) for the mourners and installs more street lamps around the venue :

" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350">

The Palace also says that they would allow the public to pay respect in front of His Majesty's urn once the 15-day royal merit ritual is completed (From 13.00 hr. on 28 October henceforth).

Interestingly, Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam told the reporters in this video that the goverment will carries on the royal merit ritual ceremony and mourns with to people for at least a year, hinting that it's the Crown Prince's wish. Then the government will carries out the royal cremation ceremony and follows by the coronation of King Rama X. He pointed out that traditionally there was no strict timeframe for the royal funeral and cremation ceremony. It differs over time and over each royals ranging from 5 months to 1 year.

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?
