Thai king’s consort stripped of titles for being ‘disloyal’

The 34-year-old consort of Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn was stripped of all her titles, according to a royal command issued on Monday.

Former royal bodyguard Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi, also known as Koi, was accused of being disloyal and having ambition to match the Queen’s position.

The move came after only less than three months after she was bestowed with the honor and titles.

Sineenat was gifted the title on the king’s 67th birthday on July 28, the first time in nearly a century a Thai monarch has taken a consort.

The palace also released images of Sineenat in combat fatigues shooting weapons, flying a jet and preparing to parachute from a plane, and holding the king’s hand that was perceived as an intimate and rare glimpse into the private life of the monarch.

Sineenat was dismissed from the rank of Chao Khun Phra or noble consort for “disloyalty to the king” according to the command, as well as “acting against the appointment of the Queen (Suthida)… for her own ambitions”.

Koi’s actions, the royal command stated, that “she does not give any honor to the king and does not understand royal tradition… her actions are to benefit herself.” The statement also said she was attempting to elevate her position to the same as Queen Suthida.

Her behavior is “deemed disrespectful to His Majesty’s grace… and caused divisions among courtiers and misunderstanding among the people,” the statement added.

She was stripped of all military ranks, decorations and royal titles, it said.
