Thai consort stripped of titles for disloyalty to crown

Royal Consort Sineenat Stripped of Royal Ranks

Before July's of Sineenat's elevation, the title of royal noble consort had not been used since before the end of Thailand's absolute monarchy in 1932.

The official royal consort of Thailand's King Maha Vajiralongkorn has been stripped of her title, based on a Royal Gazette assertion.

It made the extraordinary announcement just months after the king, who was officially crowned in May, made Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi a royal noble consort - the first such appointment in nearly a century.

"The king gave her a royal consort position, in hopes of relieving the pressure and a problem that could affect the monarchy", the statement said.

Queen Suthida - a 41-year-old former flight attendant and deputy head of his bodyguard unit - is King Vajiralongkorn's long-term partner and has been seen with him in public for many years.

The title, ranking and all medals have been removed from Sineenat Bilaskalayani for inappropriate behavior and a failure to be loyal to the monarch, according to the statement released Monday night in Bangkok.

Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi was unsatisfied with her position and exerted pressure on Queen Suthida, according to a royal order issued on Monday.

Azhar Ali has replaced Sarfaraz as the Test captain while Babar Azam has been handed the responsibility of the T20I side. A decision on the one-day captaincy will be finalised in due course.

"She displays disobedience against the king and the queen".

She has also trained as a pilot in Thailand and overseas, served in the King's royal bodyguard unit, and in May was awarded the rank of a major-general.

In the statement, the 34-year-old was branded "ambitious" and accused of attempting "to elevate herself to the status of the Queen".

For example, when then Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn divorced his third wife, Srisasmi Suwadee, in 2014, he arranged for the imprisonment of her parents and brothers for lese majeste, and of her uncle for corruption.

The removal of Sineenat echoes the cases of two of the King's former wives. But consorts were more common in the 19th century, when they often received their appointments as a way of cementing alliances with regional power brokers when the kingdom was still known as Siam.

The royal family had been scheduled to participate in the Royal Barge Procession on Thursday, one of the last ceremonies in the king's year-long coronation celebrations, but last week the event was postponed https://www.reuters.com/article/us-thailand-king-coronation/thai-royal-barge-procession-put-off-due-to-water-and-weather-conditions-idUSKBN1WW1PE until later in the year, with officials citing weather conditions.
