A member of public sits behind officials as they salute while the motorcade carrying King Vajiralongkorn and Queen Suthida drive past the Grand Palace during his coronation in in Bangkok. Outside the palace walls, people in yellow polo shirts sat on roadsides, holding up portraits of the king and the national flag as 19th-century cannons fired to announce the new reign. Yellow is the color of Monday, the day the king was born, and the color of the sun, which represents the monarch in the cosmos, according to Thai culture.

King Vajiralongkorn and Queen Suthida arrive at the Grand Palace during his coronation in Bangkok. "I shall continue, preserve, and build upon the royal legacy and shall reign with righteousness for the benefit and happiness of the people forever," the king said in his first royal command. Traditionally uttered after a king is crowned, the king's first command serves to capture the essence of his reign. The king's command was similar to that of his father's.
