I would imagine that the entire country of Thailand is very eagerly anticipating all the rituals and events that come with a coronation. It truly is a time that unites the people.
The previous king’s funeral was incredibly detailed and interesting. I can only imagine how transfixing this coronation will be!

Oh wasn't it! I was glued to streaming everything surrounding the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and the cremation ceremony a year later. This is what impresses me. The time, the respect, the prayers and the blessings that make momentous occasions something that is to be remembered and celebrated over time rather than one ceremony and done.

It was announced that no foreign royalties were invited. AFAIK, the only European royal who attended the coronation was the Grand Duke Boris Vladimirovich of Russia in the Rama VI's Coronation.

Personal observation of the ceremony so far:

- HM the King looks frail and tired in some evident moments.
- Absence of Princess Ubolratana is very obscure, considering that she's still very healthy compared to other members of the royal family.
- Absences of Queen Mother, Princess Chulabhorn and Princess Soamsawali (poor health/hospitalized).
- Presence of Khun Koi in the back row.

Just finished to watch the ceremony. It was very interesting. Some moments were unexpected, for example, the Brahmins' part was very significant. As I understand new queen received a lot of gifts. Yes, the king was visibly tired.
For me best moment was interaction of the family after the ceremony. Lovely.

Usually I would watch this with total fascination, but I dislike the new King and his poor fourth wife so much, that it had turned into a grotesque vaudeville for me. Sadly all channels worldwide start about the poodle who became Marshall, the stewardess-turned-general whom suddenly became Queen, the images of a barely clad Prince with fake tattoos greeted by the most docile servants ever. Brrrr. This is the best ammunition for opposants. It has the same vibe as the ill-doomed Nepalese and Iranian royals.

Ceremonies for today are over. Here are key events:

Purification bath Murathabhisek: https://youtu.be/puTxHD4C-_0
Anointing on the Octagonal Throne: https://youtu.be/ba0ueRMK03Y
Crowning of the new King: https://youtu.be/DgCsoys7PoU
Installation of Queen Suthida: https://youtu.be/i06rwPJpO6M
Grand audience: https://youtu.be/P537FUECgcs

Clearly, the king looked very tired probably from Thailand's deadly heat during hot season. Tomorrow's ceremony will focus on state progress around old quarter of Bangkok in the evening (I guess to avoid the heat).

Hello, Appleich, thank you for links and videos!
I have a wuastion about anointing ceremony - who was the person who was anointing the King after each official presented him with some kind of vessel? Was it a priest?
The second question about ritual itself - some people there kneeled before the King, and some didn't, I've noticed those who didn't were of advanced age - was it because of their age or their status they didn't kneel?

I believe Princess Soamsawali and her daughter were both there in the area for members of the Royal Family. On the Thai TV coverage that I was watching the camera quickly scanned the group and she could be seen and she is not a lady to be easily missed.

They were Royal Brahmin priests. Reuters has a good article explaining all the rituals performed yesterday if you'd like to explore further:
And, for those who struggled to knee or didn't knee, I'm quite sure it was because of their age.

Only Princess Bajrakitiyabha was presented yesterday. Princess Soamsawali suffered intracranial hemorrhage since February and has been hospitalized since.

Another ceremony which was not publicly televised was Assumption of Residence where the newly crowned king resided within Grand Palace for a night.

Thanks Appleich for posting all the pictures and videos and keeping us informed!

Seeing that the last coronation was such a long time ago we are fortunate to be able to witness this...

(and that it happens to be at the same time as the festivities in Japan for the new emporer is a coincidence that will probably never occur again..)

^^ You're welcomed.

Today, members of the royal family and King Bhumibol bestowed with new titles as follows:
Quote:
  1. HM King Bhumibol the Great, the King Father
  2. HM Queen Sirikit, the Queen Mother
  3. HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the Princess Debaratanarajasuda, Princess Royal (Grand Princess Sister)
  4. HRH Princess Chulabhorn, the Princess Srisavangvadhana (Princess Sister)
  5. HRH Princess Soamsawali, the Princess Suthanareenart
  6. HRH Princess Bajrakitiyabha Narendira Debayavadi (Princess Daughter)

Princess Ubolratana and her family didn't receive any royal titles since she relinquished it long ago to marry Peter Jensen.

Queen Sirikit

Was the lady in the wheelchair (with the gold face mask) Queen Sirikit? The new Queen was showing her great reverence when the King was giving out the names and awards so I presume it was her (the last time she was seen she had grey hair and this lady had black hair - but I suppose you’d want to look your best at such an occasion!).
