Thai king strips ‘disloyal’ royal consort of all titles

Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn has stripped his 34-year-old consort of all titles for “disloyalty” and apparent “ambition” to match the Queen’s position, a royal command issued late Monday said, less than three months after she was bestowed with the honour. Former royal bodyguard Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi- known by her nickname “Koi” -- 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. A few days later the palace released images of the short-haired Sineenat in combat fatigues shooting weapons, flying a jet and preparing to parachute from a plane, as well as holding the king’s hand.
