BANGKOK, 28 April 2014 – The Bureau of the Royal Household on April 27 held a worshiping ceremony of the Royal Regalia which will be used in the celebration on the Coronation anniversary of His Majesty the King on May 5, 2014.
Mr. Narongrid Snidvongs Na Ayuthaya, a Grand Chamberlain, presided over the worshiping ceremony held at Sala Ratchapracha Samakhom Pavilion in Klai Kangwon Palace, in Hua Hin District, Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. By royal command, the Royal Regalia has been removed from Bangkok to be instituted at Klai Kangwon Palace for use in the royal and traditional ceremony to celebrate the Coronation Day, May 5.
The Royal Regalia is surmounted on a throne and is comprised of five elements namely the Great Crown and Sword of Victory, the Royal Staff, Fan and Slippers.
His Majesty the King was officially crowned on May 5, 1950, when he pledged he would “reign with righteousness for the benefit and happiness of the Siamese people”. For more than 60 years, His Majesty has proved he has kept his words, ruling the country with the 10-fold code of moralities of the King. The numerous projects that His Majesty has initiated have reflected the royal benevolence for his people and the nation.
Also on Sunday, at a nearby hall inside the Ratchapracha Samakhom Pavilion, Klai Kangwon Palace, representatives from government units, leading members of the armed forces and the general public kept pouring into the hall to lay vases of flowers in front of the royal portrait of Their Majesties the King and Queen and sign books to congratulate Them on the Royal Wedding anniversary on April 28.
The Bureau of the Royal Household has opened the hall for public signing of the books since April 25, and the activity will continue until April 29.
