Thailand's 'Playboy King' Maha Vajiralongkorn has pardoned his concubine, whom he had allegedly thrown in jail for "disrespecting the monarchy". Now, he has flown her to Germany to join his harem of 'sex soldiers,' it has been claimed.

MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) previously reported how Vajiralongkorn, 68, had booked out the entirety of the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl in Bavaria, a four-star luxury hotel in southern Germany where he had taken his entire entourage, including a harem of 20 concubines with him to self-isolate amid the coronavirus pandemic. He had booked out the hotel with the permission of a local council and has been quarantining there since March when Covid-19 was first breaking out in Thailand.

He has now welcomed former bodyguard Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi, 35, back into the fold and into his entourage, according to German outlet Bild. Wongvajirapakdi had made history when she was officially anointed as a royal consort during a televised ceremony for Vajiralongkorn's 67th birthday a little over a year ago. It was the first time in the country's modern history that a monarch has acknowledged having an extramarital affair.

The 35-year-old, who had been a senior officer in the king's bodyguard team, the Ratchawallop Police Retainers, was anointed as Chao Khun Phra, or 'Royal Noble Consort' and given four medals, including 'most noble order of the crown of Thailand' and 'most exalted order of the white elephant, special class.'

But her fall from grace came just three months later when she was stripped of her title for "disloyalty to the king." In a statement released by the royal family, Wongvajirapakdi was accused of trying to sabotage the appointment of Queen Suthida Tidjai, the king's fourth wife, by trying to make herself equivalent to the queen and trying to overstep in the affairs of the royal couple. "Sineenat’s behavior disrespected the monarchy, caused conflict among royal household officials and created misunderstanding among the public," the statement said.

She went "missing" days after the announcement, with reports at the time claiming she had been banished from the kingdom to live a life in exile. But according to Bild, she was imprisoned at the Bang Kwang maximum-security prison, where inmates are constantly monitored with webcams. The prison was reportedly the venue for Thailand's first execution in a decade in 2018 and is said to house around 1,000 people on death row. 

But this past Friday, August 28, Thailand expert Andrew MacGregor Marshall cited palace sources and shared that she had been released. After she was freed, she was taken straight to the airport and flown to Munich on a private plane. Vajiralongkorn is said to have personally gone to the airport to pick her up when the plane landed on Saturday and then taken her to Sonnenbichl, located in the resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

The Thai king has reportedly booked out the whole fourth floor in the hotel, which includes a "pleasure room" and is decorated with "treasures and antiques" from Thailand. His "sex soldiers" give him company while his wife is staying at Hotel Waldegg in Engelberg, Switzerland.
