The unpredictable king of Thailand, Maha VajiralongkornSuffering from mass protests in Bangkok, he is now accused of fracturing his sister’s ankles.
This shocking allegation was reported by Andrew MacGregor Marshall, former chief of Reuters’ Bangkok bureau, in his subscription-only newsletter, The secret of fasting.
Marshall, who is free to cite his Thai sources without fear of the country’s fierce censorship laws since leaving Asia, recalls that the king attacked her after his dogs struck them. Insiders claimed that he either jumped on her legs or hit her with a stick.
The assault was allegedly caused by her confronting him over his plans to make his official wife a second queen, along with his current wife, Queen Suthida.
The Thai nobles have been alive recently with rumors that King Maha X has decided to elevate his official wife, Senenat “Koy” and Ngvajirapakdi, to the position of full queen.
The proposed scheme appears to have failed badly with his sister, Princess Sirindhorn, who went to see her brother in an attempt to change his mind about two weeks ago.
Seems like this was a bad idea; The palace was recently announced That Sirindorn injured her ankles in a fall, and was rushed to the hospital, however, MacGregor Marshall says, Citing Good Sources in Informed Palace Networks, that’s less than half the story.
In fact, he claims, “an angry quarrel broke out” during the meeting and “one of the Vajiralongkorn dogs hit her, and while she was lying on the ground, he either punched her ankles or hit them with a shattering stick both of them.”
McGregor Marshall says Sirindorn underwent surgery on her ankles at Chulalongkorn Hospital and is unlikely to walk again for several months.
An announcement was made to announce Koy’s promotion to the second Queen of Thailand on Tuesday, her birthday. In what may have been a prelude to an official announcement at a later date, the couple appeared in public wearing identical blue coats as they released fish and birds at a Buddhist ceremony at the Wasukri Wharf in Bangkok. Contrary to what was reported in a German newspaper picture, Its upgrade has yet to be announced.
If Koi were actually promoted to the position of Queen, it would be a great comeback for the 35-year-old former nurse.
Koi was only released in August of last year after spending ten months in a correctional facility. She had been accused of infighting with the queen, but then was declared “unspoiled” and reinstated as the official companion of King Maha Vajiralongkorn, 68 years old.
Rumors of her release also spread, with more than a thousand pictures of her, including alleged nudes, Sent on SD Cards to MacGregor MarshallAnd to Pavin Chachavalpongpun, Thai academic and outspoken critic of the monarchy.
The king did not marry his current and fourth wife, Suthida, until May 2019, just days before his coronation. He divorced his third wife in 2014. The relationship was made famous by a leaked video clip showing her her birthday cake feeding his dog, Fufu, while she was only wearing a G-string and a hem crawling on the floor in front of her and the king.
Fufu appeared in an earlier embarrassing incident: telegrams written by Eric John while he was the US ambassador in Bangkok, and published by WikiLeaks, that illustrate the king’s strange obsession with the dog. Diplomatic cables He said he was Fufu’s lover, And he gave him the title of Air Marshal. He is said to have brought the dog to a formal dinner “dressed in formal evening wear complete with claw mittens” where he drank from the guests’ water cups.

Opponents of the outrageous royals have encouraged audacity in recent months as their numbers swell in rallies organized by students protesting against the establishment.
Protesters recently began protesting by wearing tops that display the midriffs ridicule of the king, who was photographed wearing similar uniforms at German airports and malls.
