Thailand’s playboy king makes mistress his second queen as birthday present despite 1,400 ‘leaked naked selfies’

THE PLAYBOY King of Thailand has made his mistresses his second queen as her birthday present despite her 1,400 "leaked naked selfies".

King Maha Vajiralongkorn, 68, reportedly crowned Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi as Queen on her 36th birthday.

The couple wore matching baby blue coats as they released fish and birds in a Buddhist ceremony in Bangkok to mark her birthday on Tuesday.

It comes just one month after 1,400 naked and semi-naked pictures were leaked of the King's mistress, who is also known as Koi.

The leak of the the “very explicit” images is thought to be connected to a bitter rivalry between the King’s mistress and his wife.

The revelation of the saucy snaps, some of which show Koi naked or semi-naked posing provocatively for the camera, comes after she rejoined the royal harem after being dramatically expelled and imprisoned last year.

The stunning army hospital nurse was given back her royal and military titles after she was previously accused of seeking to undermine the king's official wife and former consort, Queen Suthida.

The pictures – thought to have been taken by Sineenat herself – were sent to British journalist Andrew MacGregor Marshall, who has written critical articles about the Thai monarchy, reported The Times.

"The photographs are clearly from Koi's personal phones," he wrote in a Facebook post.

"Most of the images are photographs she took of herself, and dozens of them are very explicit. It seems probable that she had taken these explicit photographs of herself to send to Vajiralongkorn."

The 1,443 snaps were taken between 2012 and 2014 and include revealing shots of Koi topless and in skimpy nightwear.

In July 2019 Sineenat was handed the title of “chao khun phra”, meaning royal noble consort, during a ceremony to mark the king's 67th birthday.

It was the first time in nearly a century that a Thai monarch had taken a consort, after the 68-year-old king married his fourth wife Queen Suthida, 41, just three months earlier.   

But in October 2019, less than three months after making Sineenat his royal consort, the king issued a command rescinding the appointment and sending her to prison.

The official statement accused his mistress of being “dishonourable, lacking gratitude [and of] disobedience against the king and the queen”.

In January a 65-year-old woman was jailed for 43 years and six months for insulting the Thai monarchy.

Former civil servant Anchan Preelert shared audio clips on Facebook and YouTube that included comments deemed critical of the monarchy, according to activists Thai Lawyers for Human Rights.

Anchan pleaded guilty to 29 seperate counts of violating the majeste law, her lawyer Pawinee Chumsri told Reuters.

Thailand has a controversial lese majeste law, commonly known as Article 112, which forbids people from criticising the Thai monarchy.
