Thailand's New King Ascends Throne

Pictured Paying respect to his late father, Thailand's new king is seen above kneeling in front a picture, as servants lie on the floor behind him in a deferential manner.

He had accepted an invitation from the Thai parliament to succeed him, and was crowned at Bangkok's Dusit Palace in an event broadcast on all Thai television channels.

 Thailand’s Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, a three-times divorced playboy becomes Rama X of Thailand's Chakri dynasty, but will not formally be crowned until after his father's cremation, which is expected next year.
