    Main headline: Wissanu indicate that the new reign of King Rama X has begun from 13 October 2016. (From Khaosod, October 16, 2016) – the way Wissanu to sooth the public anxiety about the Crown prince who still declines to take a title “Somdej Phrachao Yoohua” (reigning and acting king – but not pass coronation ceremony yet) .

    Now, BBC has reported that Crown prince has hinted that he will consider taking a title “Somdej Phrachao Yoohua” (reigning and acting king) in December 2016 to be able to give Royal Assent to the new constitution and to deal with some of his own private issues but the full coronation will be started only after the cremation of our father.
