The King of Thailand pardoned his concubine after throwing her in prison last year and had her flown to Germany to join his Alpine harem, it is claimed.
Playboy monarch Maha Vajiralongkorn, 68, spent much of the pandemic in Germany with a notorious entourage of “sex soldiers” gathered as a military unit in a four-star hotel.
According to Bild, they are set to be joined by former royal bodyguard Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi, 35 – who was named a ‘royal consort’ last year but soon fell out of favor and was stripped of them all. his titles.
It is now believed that the king granted her a royal reprieve – and traveled to Munich airport to pick her up himself.

Experience: Sineenat had completed pilot training in Thailand and overseas, served in the Royal King’s Bodyguard Unit, and in 2019 received the rank of Major-General
The bridegroom, also known as Koi Wongvajirapakdi, was given the title of Royal Bridegroom to mark the King’s 67th birthday last July.
It was the first time in nearly a century that a Thai monarch had taken a bridegroom, after the king married his fourth wife Queen Suthida earlier in 2019.
Sineenat had trained as a pilot in Thailand and abroad, served in the Royal King’s Bodyguard Unit and, in 2019, received the rank of Major-General.
During the king’s elaborate three-day coronation ceremony, Sineenat was seen marching in military uniform in a procession that traveled from the palace to several Buddhist temples.
However, Sineenat was absent within three months and stripped of all her titles of “disloyalty” and alleged “ambition” to equal the position of the queen.
Her actions have shown “that she gives no honor to the king and does not understand royal tradition … her actions are beneficial to herself,” according to a statement.
Koi has apparently been in prison since then, although she is not sure where she is.
According to Bild, she was in Bang Kwang maximum security prison where inmates, including drug traffickers, are constantly monitored with webcams.
The prison is said to have around 1,000 people in the death row and was where Thailand carried out its first execution for almost a decade in 2018.
Thai expert Andrew MacGregor Marshall said she had been in a women’s prison at another compound in Bangkok.
However, he quoted palace sources on Friday as saying Sineenat had been released and was due to fly to Germany shortly.
Bild’s report says she was taken straight to the airport and flown to Munich in a private plane, with a refueling stop in Dubai.

On Saturday morning, the king himself reportedly came to pick her up in his usual tank top at Munich airport.
The king and his entourage then went directly to the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl in the German seaside resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, it is claimed.
Reports earlier this year said the king had reserved the entire fourth floor which includes a “pleasure room” and is adorned with “treasures and antiques” from Thailand.
Its “sex soldiers” would be assembled into a military unit called SAS like the British special forces – with the same motto, “who dares to win”.
A hotel employee said staff are prohibited from leaving the fourth floor where the king and his entourage have set up camp.
However, the king’s diplomatic immunity means that there is little that the German authorities can do about it.
Queen Suthida would spend most of her time at the Waldegg Hotel in Engelberg, Switzerland, without her husband.
The king is protected from criticism in Thailand by one of the world’s toughest defamation laws, with prison terms of up to 15 years.
However, some protesters issued veiled criticisms asking what the weather was like in Germany.
A hashtag that translates to “why do we need a king?” became popular in Thailand after a foreign activist published articles about Vajiralongkorn’s activities in Germany.
Others dressed up as Harry Potter characters and held up photos of series villain Lord Voldemort, also known as the One Who Must Not Be Named.

Critics’ demands have included the overthrow of a 2019 order transferring two army units to the king’s personal command and a 2017 law that gave him full control of vast Crown properties.
Vajiralongkorn’s personal wealth estimates start at $ 30 billion and he has spent much of his time in Europe.
However, the monarchy is supported by the military arch-royalist, who has staged more than a dozen coups since absolutism ended in 1932.
While the country has been troubled by decades of political turmoil, the constitution stipulates that the monarchy must be maintained “in a position of revered worship.”
Vajiralongkorn came to the throne in 2016 after the death of his father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who had reigned since 1946.
The new king was not officially crowned until May 2019 when he was transported to a golden platform in a six-and-a-half-hour procession through Bangkok.
During the ceremony, he was transported to a golden platform in a spectacular six-and-a-half-hour procession through Bangkok’s historic district.
Just a few days before the coronation, the king married his longtime wife and gave her the title of Queen Suthida, in a surprise gesture.
Suthida Vajiralongkorn na Ayudhya, a former Thai Airways flight attendant, had to lie down on the floor as she received a gift from the king during the wedding ceremony.
