Suthida, 40, has been rumoured to be romantically linked with Vajiralongkorn for at least three years, but their relationship was not previously made public.


Suthida, who is Vajiralongkorn’s fourth wife, is said to have previously worked as a flight attendant for Thai Airways International. The pair apparently met on a flight and Suthida joined the palace guard in 2013. – AAP


She became commander of the king’s security unit, and the king made her a full general in December 2016. The new queen also has several top royal decorations, including being known as a Thanpuying, a royal title meaning Lady. – REUTERS
