Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume represented Luxembourg and Princess Margaretha Liechtenstein at the royal cremation of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died in October 2016, in Bangkok. Today was the second day of Thailand's elaborate five-day funeral for their late King who ruled the country for 70 years before dying at the age of 88 a year ago. The King's body was transported in a procession from the Grand Palace, where it was lying in state, to Sanam Luang, the site of the Royal Crematorium, which was built for the occasion. 

There are hours and hours of coverage of the elaborate and fascinating funeral rituals over on Youtube, the royals can be spotted in these ones here and here, for example.
