News video: King Rama X Welcomed To ThailandThe 64-year-old crown prince of Thailand officially accepted an invitation on Thursday by the Thai government to assume the throne as King Rama X. Since 1782 the Chakri dynasty has ruled Thailand, beginning with Rama I. Following the death of his father in October, the prince said he needed "time to mourn" before assuming the throne. His older sister wasn't able to take the throne "since women are not allowed to become monarch under Thailand's succession laws."
