An elaborate three-day coronation ceremony for Thailand's King Maha Vajiralongkorn will be held May 4 to 6, the palace announced Tuesday, nearly two and half years after the death of his revered father Bhumibol.

"It's a suitable time to hold the coronation in accordance with the tradition and for national celebration and joy of the people," the Royal Household Bureau said in a televised announcement.
