At 2pm on Saturday, many loyal subjects remained seated on sidewalks in front of the Grand Palace and Sanam Luang to watch live broadcast of the Royal Coronation rites on monitor screens despite the hot weather.

One of them, Yao Sirapong, 45, a farmer from Mukdahan province. She took a bus from Mukdahan on Friday night and considered herself lucky to have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to witness the event.

Narongdej Naksathorn, 21, a university student, said the Royal Coronation rites provided an opportunity for the young generation to take part in and study the ancient rites that have not taken place in Thailand for decades.
