Thailand's King Maha Vajiralongkorn (C) and honour guard march a religious ceremony for Thailand's late King Bhumibol Adulyadej in Bangkok, Thailand, Oct. 27, 2017.

The almost 2-kilometer procession, expected to last about three hours, was joined by King Maha Vajiralongkorn - the late king's son and successor - his sister Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn and other members of the royal family, along with Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

King Maha Vajiralongkorn, the current monarch, participated in a religious ceremony with the royal family on Friday morning.

Following the Royal Cremation, the royal relics will be sent back to the Grand Palace as well as to Wat Rajabopidh and Wat Bovoranives Buddhist temples in Bangkok.

Earlier, King Bhumibol's symbolic royal urn was carried by a gilded chariot to a gleaming funeral complex that has been erected outside Bangkok's Grand Palace.

The events will culminate on Thursday evening with the royal cremation ceremony.

Thousands of tearful citizens in Thailand were clad in black as they lined the streets and viewing areas for their king's funeral rituals.

Royalty and other dignitaries, including U.S. Defense Secretary Gen. Jim Mattis, arrived from far and wide to attend the ceremonies. The ceremonies in each province were scheduled to start at the same time, as well as those organized at Thai embassies overseas.

"What we can do for him (King Bhumibol) is follow in his footsteps", she said.

King Bhumibol reigned for 70 years after ascending the throne in 1946 at the age of 18.

Based on Swazi cultural practice, King Mswati III does not attend funerals; and he does not even mingle with people who have been around a dead person.Swazi custom requires that the king stays away from such person until a period of seven days elapses, which is believed to be enough time to declare that person as having been cleansed of bad luck which is associated with a corpse. He died peacefully, aged 89, on October 13, 2016, at Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok.
