Royal barge procession

I told you about it in my posts about the coronation of King Rama X in May, a royal barges procession would also be organized in October of the same year (2019) on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok to mark this event. The royal fluvial procession will be chaired by His Majesty King Vajiralongkorn, Rama X, and should mobilize up to 52 barges and 2,200 sailors. The event will be preceded by 10 rehearsals between July and October.

The tradition of royal river processions goes back hundreds of years, they are always an exceptional and rare event. The last procession took place in 2012, although King Bhumibol, the monarch of the time, was not personally present because of his state of health. The royal procession of King Vajiralongkorn on the Chao Phraya River will take place on the 24th of October 2019.
