A group of royalists led by former monk Phra Buddha Isara handed a letter to the House speaker on Monday objecting to the setting up of a panel to look into reforming the monarchy.

The royalists have been camping outside Parliament since Sunday to show their support for the government and prevent the invasion of pro-democracy protesters.

The former monk, who now goes by the name Suwit Thongprasert, was defrocked and jailed over two charges: the unauthorised use of royal initials in amulets and his role as the co-leader of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee protests in 2014.

This group also had a chance to interact with Their Majesties the King and Queen when they were mingling with the crowds outside the Grand Palace on Friday last week.
