  Vajiralongkorn on Royal Barge

 

Thailand

The Golden Swan Royal Barge, known in Thai as Reua Phra Thihnang Suphanahong (fig.), is one of the most prominent of barges in the fleet of Royal Barges.

 

It is also the King's personal barge, though nowadays Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn (fig.) often takes the King's place during processions. The royals are seated inside the ganya (fig.), which is located at about little over the half of the barge's length, towards the stern (fig.).
