Sineenat was the first person to be awarded the title of royal noble consort in nearly a century
While Thai monarchs have a history of electing royal consorts – who, in Thailand’s case, are official companions to the king, in addition to his wife – the title has not been used since the country became a constitutional monarchy in 1932.
The last king to publicly take a consort was King Rama VI, who ruled from 1910 to 1925.
The title of consort placed Sineenat in a polygynous relationship with Queen Suthida, 41, Vajiralongkorn’s fourth wife.
Sineenat has been seen publicly by the king’s side for a few years now
Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn has stripped his newly-named royal consort Sineenat of her titles and military ranks for being ‘disloyal’ and conducting a rivalry with Queen Suthida, the palace said.
Sineenat has often been seen at royal events in previous years, including the cremation ceremony of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej in October 2017.
Sineenat was also a major-general and is a trained pilot, nurse and bodyguard
Born on January 26, 1985, in Thailand’s northern province of Nan, Sineenat first worked as a nurse after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the Army Nursing College in 2008.
In 2015, Sineenat joined the king’s bodyguard corps, where she completed a variety of military courses, including jungle warfare and parachuting, and obtained a private pilot’s licence.
She then moved up to serve as a major general before becoming the royal consort.
Sineenat was appointed to the position of royal consort for the same reason she was supposedly dismissed from it: conflict with the queen
Two months after marrying Suthida, the king consequently gave Sineenat the royal consort position in hopes that it would alleviate the situation.
However, the palace asserts that once in the position, Sineenat was unhappy with her status and tried to elevate herself to “the same state as the queen”.
The statement charges Sineenat with abusing her power to issue personal orders and pretending they were royal commands.
Sineenat’s royal removal isn’t the first of its kind, as two of the king’s former wives were removed from the monarchy and stripped of their respective decorations.
In 1996, Vajiralongkorn denounced his second wife, Sujarinee Vivacharawongse, who then fled to the United States.
Then in 2014, he similarly stripped his third wife, Srirasmi Suwadee, of all her titles and banished her from court.
During this time, Srirasmi’s parents were arrested and imprisoned for criticising the monarchy, a crime known in Thailand as lèse-majesté (a French saying meaning “to do wrong to majesty”).
The severe enforcement of lèse-majesté laws also contributes to the tight control over Sineenat’s public narrative.

Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Sineenat was born on 26 January 1985, to the Ounprom family, Wirat (father) and Pranee (mother).
Her place of birth is described as being in the Tha Wang Pha District of Nan Province, Thailand.
Her primary and secondary schools were also in the same district, at Rajapiyorasa Yupparachanusorn School, and at Tha Wang Pha Pittayakhom (Witthayakhom) School.
She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing at the Royal Thai Army Nursing College in Bangkok in 2008 as a member of Class 41; Ounprom presented a published conference paper on smoking cessation efforts among enlisted soldiers while affiliated with her college.
On 21 October 2019, King Rama X issued a royal edict stripping her of all her government, military, and noble ranks, positions, and titles, as well as royal decorations, citing her conflict with and disrespectful conduct towards his wife, Queen Suthida.
Until August 2020, her whereabouts were unknown, rumored to either be in prison or dead.
On 27 August 2020, the Lat Yao Central Women’s Correctional Prison was reportedly closed to visitors for two days, and a Boeing 737 plane from King Rama X’s private fleet was dispatched to Bangkok.
According to journalist Andrew MacGregor Marshall, the prison is where she had been held and the events were part of a plan to transport her in secret to Munich where she will join his retinue in quarantine, in preparation for a possible future royal pardon and restoration of her titles.
On 29 August 2020, the restoration was made official with a royal edict stating that she had “never been a tarnished person” and proclaiming that all her titles, decorations and military ranks are fully restored as if they had never been revoked.
