I have some questions regarding the thai monarchy and the role of the Crown Prince:
Did the Crown Prince act as Regent during the long illness of his father? I didn´t get the impression he took on a more prominent part in the monarchy of Thailand (could be, of course, wrong as there aren´t many reports about the asian monarchies here in europe). I have never seen him and his 2nd wife doing many royal engagements together (in fact, for the enthronement of the dutch king last year, other than the european crown princes and -princesses, he attended with his sister).
Is it for sure HE will overtake the throne after the King´s death or is his eldest sister a realistic option?!
Thanks in advance!
^^ In most of the King's obligations and ceremonies, Yes, He did and still does :
In Thailand the Crown Prince and his consort (3rd wife) hold many royal engagements together. But somehow, They rarely appear together in the events outside Thailand.
The CP's 2nd wife is Sucharini Vivajrawongse, Currently lives in the US with her sons Chudhavajra, Vajaresra, Chakrivajra and Vajravira. Her last child with the CP is Princess Sirivannavari who ,only child and only daughter, still hold a royal title. In late 1990s, Sucharini and the 4 princes were mysteriously renounced their royal titles by the palace. They are forgotten by the Thai society nowadays.

The CP is going the succeed the throne for sure because his older sister, Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya, is forbidden to succeed the throne by The 1924 Palace Law of Succession since she once married to a foreigner. (Section 11 states: "Descendants of the royal family with any of the following characters shall be excluded from the line of succession: Married to a foreign consort;")
^^ My mistake, No one really knows why he attended the Inauguration with his sister instead of his consort. Maybe it was the king's or the palace bureau's arrangement. Princess Srirasm is quite new in the royal family and some senior officials consider her inappropriate to carry some prominent royal engagements, Especially, in foreign countries.
