HRH Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn represented HM the King to preside over the ceremony, also attended by HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, and other royal family members.

As monks intoned Buddhist chants, the crown prince and princess received the golden urn containing the remains of Princess Galyani, who died of cancer in January at the age of 84.

A procession of more than 800 soldiers carried the urn from the crematorium to the Grand Palace.

The royal urn containing royal relics has been enshrined at the Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall, while the royal ashes have enshrined at Phra Si Rattana Chedi in the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.

On Monday, a merit-making ceremony to pay homage to the royal relics will be held at the Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall. The following morning, Tuesday, a merit-making ceremony will take place at the Dusit Maha Prasat Throne Hall before the royal urn containing the royal relics is moved to be enshrined at the Chakri Maha Prasat Throne Hall, also in the Grand Palace compound.

On Wednesday, the royal ashes will be moved to be enshrined at Rangsi Vadhana Memorial, at nearby Wat Ratchabophit Sathitmahasimaram. (TNA)
