Thai King Maha Vajiralongkorn (68), known as Rama X., not only has a disturbed relationship with his country, but also with his four sons from his first marriage.
Juthavachara “Max” (41), Vacharaesorn (39), Chakriwat (37) and Vatchrawee (35) were chased out of the country overnight in 1997 together with Rama’s ex-wife Sujarinee (58, married 1994 to 1996). You have lived in the USA ever since.
Sujarinee met the prince as a teenager and was his mistress for 15 years before becoming the second of his three official wives. Their five children attended boarding school in the UK.
Suddenly the family world collapsed. A family friend to BILD: “In 1996 the king appeared in Great Britain and took his daughter Sirivannavari, she was nine at the time, to Thailand.”
From one day to the next, the brothers and their mother were stripped of their titles, had to surrender their passports and were officially banned. One of many bizarre reasons: Sujarinee is said to have had a relationship with air marshal Anand Rotsamkhan (60).
Maha Vajiralongkorn even hung posters on the walls of his palace (see BILD). He accused his wife of adultery, abuse and fraud.
The family friend to BILD: “The king never loved his wife and children. He treated them like slaves! In the course of the accusations, many of her relatives were expropriated, imprisoned and evicted – many forever!
Destitute and stranded, the family had only one way out: Sujarinee applied for political asylum with her four sons in the USA.
The family struggled through great hardship and dependent on donations from Thai dissidents. All of the sons graduated from university and now support their mother.
The longing for their homeland is still unbroken 23 years after the expulsion. An acquaintance: “So far you have not heard a word from your father, nor have you had any contact with the royal family.”
The Thai king will travel to Germany again from January and enjoy his luxury life here in luxury. Majesty’s un-Thai attention then again enjoys his harem.
A few years ago, his children wrote to their father in a letter available to BILD: “We have never given up hope that one day we will be able to come back to Thailand.”
