For the first time since Thailand became a constitutional monarchy, His Majesty the King has taken a second consort publicly.  In a special ceremony King Maha Vajiralongkorn, also known as Rama X, made his mistress and former bodyguard Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi, 34, his chao khun phra (royal noble consort) in a ceremony on his 67th birthday.  His wife Queen Suthida sat at his side as he formally elevated his mistress to royal status as an official consort and Chief Concubine.

I will not pass judgement as to any morality here, as it is HM's place to do so in the first place, but I will at least give him some favour as to his honesty in this regard. I just hope the three of them have a lasting and binding arrangement and that it does not reflect badly upon them.

His Majesty the King has stripped his concubine of her titles and position for disloyalty.  She has been cited for undermining the Queen and trying to prevent her elevation earlier this year.  She is also accused of trying disrespectfully to elevate herself to the same level as the Queen, and giving out orders in the name of the King without his consent.  Ah the complications of royal polygamy.   Makes one wonder if she will be replaced by a new concubine?

I suppose it could be thought of as 'a good idea at the time' but sadly all that glittered was not golden for her. I hope this proves to be an abject lesson for the new-ish King of Thailand that he will have to ponder in the years to come.

And yet she should count her blessings. Henry VIII would likely not have been so tolerant.  Vajiralongkorn would be well-advised to make do  with his remaining queen, refrain from too much administrative innovation, and concentrate on his position as a symbol of unity for his nation. At age 67, he has little need for additional wives or concubines.

It looks like the removal of the concubine is turning into a palace purge.

The king has removed members of the Royal Guard's "Bedroom" section for several offenses including adultery, in the wake of the fall of his concubine/consort and the stripping of her royal titles and status.
