His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun
Long live the King!
His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun (Thai: มหาวชิราลงกรณ บดินทรเทพยวรางกูร; born 28 July 1952) is the King of Thailand, since 2016. As the tenth monarch of the Chakri Dynasty, he is also styled as Rama X.
He is the only son of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit. In 1972, at the age of 20, he was made crown prince by his father.
After his father's death on 13 October 2016, he was expected to succeed to the throne of Thailand but asked for time to mourn before taking the throne. He accepted the throne on the night of 1 December 2016 but will not be crowned formally until after the cremation of his father. The government retroactively declared his reign to have begun on 13 October 2016, upon his father's death.
Announcement on the Royal Title of His Majesty the King
His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun has graciously given a Royal Command for the announcement to be made that: whereas the President of the National Legislative Assembly made the announcement on 1 December B.E. 2559 (2016) that as the Heir to the Throne has already been appointed by His Majesty the Late King under the Palace Law on Succession, B.E. 2467 (1924), the National Legislative Assembly has been convoked for the acknowledgement thereof and then formally invited the Heir to the Throne to ascend. It can now be officially announced that His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn has ascended as His Majesty the King.
It is His Majesty the King's wish that while His Royal Title is yet to be dedicated by the people at the Royal Coronation Ceremony to be held in the future according to royal traditions, it would be appropriate to assume a temporary Royal Title for the convenience of making references to His Majesty. The temporary Royal Title shall be His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun Announced on 1 December B.E. 2559 (2016), the first year of the current reign.
By His Majesty’s Command
General Prayut Chan-o-cha (Ret.)
