Newly-crowned Thai king carried through Bangkok in royal procession

Thailand’s newly-crowned King Maha Vajiralongkorn began a royal procession around the capital city of Bangkok as part of elaborate coronation ceremonies held over three days. “Long live the king!” shouted well-wishers who lined roads for hours under Bangkok’s blazing sun, hoping for a glimpse of the constitutional monarch who is revered in Thai culture as a living deity. King Vajiralongkorn was carried through the streets by 16 men bearing his gilded palanquin. The monarch was clad in gold-embroidered vestments and wearing the same black military-style hat that his father wore at his coronation 69 years ago.
