Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn Meets With Regent, Will Take Throne

Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn had an audience with head privy councilor Prem Tinsulanonda who is now regent for Thailand’s vacant throne, junta chairman Prayuth Chan-ocha announced in a televised broadcast Saturday night.

The address confirmed Prem, 96, is exercising royal authority temporarily on behalf of the Crown Prince, who has delayed taking the throne because he wanted time to grieve his late father, King Bhumibol. The prince also said in the conversation with Prem that he would still assume the throne one day, according to Prayuth.

“One of his important remarks was that he asked the people not to be confused or concerned about government affairs, including the royal succession,” Prayuth said.

The Crown Prince and his regent met at about 7pm at Dusit Palace in Bangkok, Prayuth said.

In the conversation, the prince repeated his rationale for declining to be proclaimed King Rama X as successor to his father, King Rama IX: He wants time to express sadness for the late King’s passing on Thursday.
