According to Thai-language media reports, the King’s son is expected to stay in the kingdom for two weeks during which he will participate in Father’s Day events, engage in charitable activities, and deliver a special lecture to the public.

He also reportedly plans to travel to other provinces.

After living abroad for 27 years, Vacharaesorn and his younger brother, Chakriwat made their first visit to Thailand on August 7. Vacharaesorn is fondly called “Than On” by Thais, while Chakriwat is known as “Than Ong”

During the trip, the pair had a meeting with the Supreme Patriarch of Thailand at Wat Ratchabophit in Bangkok and participated in merit-making ceremonies at other temples.

They also visited Chinatown, where they interacted with and took pictures with the residents.

Before leaving the country in August, Than On said that he would definitely be back.
