Princess in print

Thai Princess Ubolratana released Tuesday (Jan 24) a quarterly magazine To Be Number One in a bid to strengthen her anti-drug campaign among teenagers under the same name.

She said the publication would be a major communication tool among members. “Every (To Be Number One) member owns the magazine,” said the princess

(...)

A brainchild project of Princess Ubolratana, the To Be Number One project was started in July, 2002. So far, it has some 29 million members around the country. The princess has been heavily involved with the project and the launch of the magazine is her latest contribution.

“His Majesty The King is so pleased with the To Be Number One project. He once told me that if possible, he’d love to visit the project in all the provinces,” said the princess.

(...)

“I haven’t written anything in the debut issue but I’ll have my own column in the future. It will be called “Talk to the Princess”, which allows members to write to me and ask any questions,” said the princess.

She said she believed enhancing communication could solve many teenage problems. “Family problems can put pressure on teens and they should be able to voice their feelings and opinions.”

nope.. :)

she is the youngest daughter to the King. :)
however, comparing to her other siblings (even to the crown prince), she is the most dedicated and hard-working. that is why Thai people adore her very much. she initiates a lot of royal projects that benefit the people.
and personally, i would like to see her as heir to the throne rather than her brother.

now he only has 1, Princess Srirasmi. :)

here's his family bio from wikipedia :
Quote:
On January 3, 1977 Vajiralongkorn married Princess Soamsavali Kitiyakara (born 1957), a close cousin on his mother's side. The marriage ended in divorce in the 1980s, and Vajiralongkorn lived for some years with a common law wife, Yuvadhida Polpraserth (born 1962), with whom he had four sons and a daughter. The lack of a legitimate male heir was the main reason that Thailand legislated to allow women to inherit the throne.
According to the December 1999 issue of Asiaweek, Vajiralongkorn's relationship with Yuvadhida came to an end in 1996 when former prime minister Banharn Silapa-archa made a statement that the then Air Chief Marshall Anand Rodsamkhan was dismissed from his posting at the Royal Palace, prompting rumors that there had been an extra-marital affair.
Vajiralongkorn married again, to Mom Srirasmi Mahidol na Ayuthaya, later elevated to HRH Princess Srirasmi, on February 10, 2001, although this was not disclosed until recently. She gave birth to a boy on April 29, 2005.
Vajiralongkorn had children with:

With Princess Soamsavali Kitiyakara:With Yuvadhida Polpraserth he had five children:Sons born by Yuvadhida are unlikely to be regarded legitimate to inherit the throne and reportedly have been stripped of their royal title by their father. They now live in the United States.

With Princess Srirasmi (elevated to HRH on June 15, 2005) :

Princess to open fashion boutique



HRH Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana, the youngest daughter of HRH Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, is planning to open her first fashion store at Siam Paragon. The Sirivannavari boutique will be on the first floor of the luxury shopping mall in central Bangkok.


''It will be opened on Jan 8 next year, which will coincide with my birthday and the brand will have an image of a peacock as its logo,'' the designer princess said at a press conference at the Fashion Trend Center at CentralWorld on Friday.

''The products will be separated into two lines, which will be haute couture and ready-to-wear,'' said the princess, who is a first-year student at the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts at Chulalongkorn University. Since deciding to study fashion design, Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana has taken part in a few design events, including Bangkok Fashion Week 2005.

i'm not bragging, but i believe Team Philippines beat Thailand in that event. not sure what the final medal standings were, though...hee hee

btw, she is a granddaughter of King Bhumibol, isn't it?

i was actually impressed during the last SEA Games that members of the Thai Royal Family are very active, sports-wise, in representing their country.
