Thailand has sought to dispel any concern about a royal succession after Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn said he would delay his ascension to the throne while he mourns his father, and the government stressed on Sunday it was working as normal.
King Bhumibol Adulyadej died on Thursday after seven decades on the throne. He was 88.
The prospect of complications in the succession in the politically divided country could alarm financial markets, but the military government has been quick to quash any such speculation.
The crown prince has requested that his succession be delayed for an unspecified period, so he can grieve with the people, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has said.
The government has not set a date for the royal cremation but a deputy prime minister said the prince had asked that it be held after a year of mourning, and the coronation would take place after the cremation.
