    HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun

    The Office of His Majesty’s Principal Private Secretary the on Thursday night notified the director-general of Public Relations Department the official name of the new King in Thai and English.

    In English, the name of the new King is His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun”.

    Meanwhile, at 8 pm on Thursday night, all governors and temples throughout the country chanted Chaimongkon prayers as gongs were sounded to celebrate the auspicious occasion of Thailand having a new King.

    On Friday, HM King Maha Variralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun will leave the Amporn throne hall in the Dusit Palace to the Grand Palace to pay respect to the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

    Deputy Prime Minister Wisanu Krea-ngam, meanwhile, warned the media to accurately use the new name of the King. He called on members of the public to continue their life as usual, saying that everything remains unchanged – that is the people continue to wear black to mourn the passing of the late King and the portraits of the late King Bhumibol should stay where they are in private homes and public places.

    Dr Wisanu said that the new King had wanted everything to remain as usual as they are.

    Asked whether the people should now hang the portraits of the new King at home or in offices, the deputy prime minister said that even choosing the portraits to be used is a burden and he advised the people to just spend their life as usual.

    He went on saying that with the new King being installed, General Prem’s role as the Regent has automatically ended.

    Surely nothing is too much trouble for one that we naturally revere and respect so much.

    The Bangkok Post had a superb portrait of King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun as a give away in the paper yesterday. I bought several copies so if anyone wants one to get it framed let me know.
