While there have been news reports that thousands of Thais have gathered to mourn the loss of King Bhumibol Adulyadej at the Royal Palace, the actual number is far greater than what was reported. Millions of Thais across the nation have gathered together to mourn the loss of the revered King. Hundreds of thousands have lined up along the route where his funeral procession moved from Siriraj Hospital to the Grand Palace while the rest of the nation solemnly watched the live broadcast. Many waited all night along the street pavements to secure a spot where they could give a final tribute to the beloved King who has been a uniting force and spiritual pillar of the Thai people, the Nation’s Heart and Soul who had worked tirelessly for the people and the country. In preparation for the upcoming days the government is doing its utmost to facilitate the continuous flow of people from all over the country who will be arriving to pay their tributes. The number of arrivals is expected to be in the millions.
