The new queen was accompanied by King Sutida, after the sudden announcement of her marriage to Vajiralunkorn three days before the coronation.
The ceremony takes place after a period of mourning for the late king and comes in a state of confusion over an unresolved election crisis between the current junta leader and a “democratic front” trying to keep the army away from politics.
King Vajiralunkorn sat in the throne room of the Grand Palace under a nine-tiered umbrella with all royal symbols, including a gold-plated crown decorated with diamonds, accompanied by the queen, members of the royal family and monks.
“I will judge justice for the good of the kingdom and the people forever,” said Vajiralunkorn in his first royal statement after the coronation.
