67-year old playboy king of Thailand ‘isolates’ from coronavirus with 20 women at luxury German hotel Updated for 2021


Updated: February 26, 2021

The 67-year old playboy king of Thailand Maha Vajiralongkorn has gone into isolation from coronavirus along with 20 women, according to reports.

Vajiralongkorn, who became constitutional monarch when his father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, died in October 2016 after 70 years on the throne, is reported to have taken over a luxury German hotel with the 20 women to ‘prevent’ the spread of the deadly bug.

The Independent, quoting German media, reported that King Maha Vajiralongkorn booked the entire Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl with ‘special permission’ from German authorities to break the lockdown in the Alpine resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

The UK paper, citing German tabloid Bild, said rather than go into ‘isolation’, king Vajiralongkorn moved into the luxury hotel with a battalion of 20 concubines along with a team of servants.

The report said the king, widely known as Rama X, planned an even bigger ‘party’, but 119 members of his entourage were forced to return to Thailand amid fears they had contracted coronavirus.

New York Post wrote that it was not clear if his fourth wife, former flight attendant Suthida Tidjai, was even with him.

“His takeover made local news because hotels in the region have been forced to close to stem the spread of the deadly coronavirus. But the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl was given special permission to host the king and his entourage because “the guests are a single, homogenous group of people with no fluctuation,” a spokesperson for the local district council said, according to the report,” The Post said.

“The often controversial Thai king’s extravagant move sparked further outrage in his homeland — with the hashtag “Why do we need a king?” appearing 1.2 million times on Twitter within 24 hours of news of his German trip first breaking, the Independent said.

“Vajiralongkorn is not thought to have made a public appearance in his country since February, the Times of London said — even as it records more than 1,500 coronavirus cases and nine deaths as of Monday, according to Johns Hopkins University data,” The New York Post added.
