Huge mourning crowd sings royal anthem

A huge crowd of mourning Thais and foreigners gathered in central Bangkok to light candles and chant the royal anthem in honor of the late King of Thailand on the weekend.

People from all over the country traveled by bus, boat, and on foot to Sanam Luang on Saturday to show their love and loyalty to His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej who passed away on October 13th.

Together, they sang Sansoen Phra Barami, the royal anthem that is chanted during royal events and is played before the screening of every cinema screening.

According to security agencies, there were more than 150,000 people at Sanam Luang on Saturday.

Free food and drinks were provided for the crowds of mourners.

Since His Majesty passed away, Thais and foreigners have been traveling to the Grand Palace to pay tribute to the King who was, for much of his reign, the world’s longest-reigning monarch.
