I assume the heir is the only legitimate son of the new King, which is Prince Dipangkorn (11 years old)? See picture.

I noticed Prince Dipangkorn Rasmijoti with the King last night at the Grand Palace. The King was not officially declared heir apparent until he was 20, so there may not be any announcement regarding an heir apparent any time soon. That is, of course, assuming the King selects his only legitimate son as his heir.

HRH the Crown Prince formally accepted the invitation to ascend to throne and became King on yesterday's evening. Thus, a period of interregnum in Thailand was reversed by this ceremony. It also has a retroactive effect on counting the length of his reign which's legally begun on October 13, 2016.



Standard of the Crown Prince of Thailand (Yaowarat Flag) was replaced by Royal Standard of Thailand (Maharat Flag) at Amphorn Sathan Residence Hall, Dusit Palace.

Interesting article from Bild citing undisclosed palace source that Prince Dipangkorn originally placed first in line of succession to the Thai throne, but Queen Mother Sirikit intervened the arrangement by replacing him with his older sister, Princess Bajrakitiyabha who was born out of King Vajiralongkorn's first marriage with Princess Soamsawali (Queen Mother's niece) in an attempt to preserve the 'direct blood line' of Chakri Dynasty.

Is Thailand going to get its first ever Crown Princess and, within due course, Queen Regnant? Maybe it is, given the fact that the princess is currently the only royal child to receive her own 'department', promoted to a military rank of general of the royal Thai army and undergoing intense military trainings in recent months.

This information is interesting. If so, will the Royal Family do anything to make this change official?

Are we sure that the queen-mother is still in a position to intervene/arrange anything? We haven't seen her for years apparently because among others her mental capacities aren't what they were before.

There have been rumours for a couple of years that this was the case, especially when she was rumoured to be engaged, but so far no proof. It makes sense that she would succeed her father though for various reasons.

I believe once the princess completed all her trainings and things are settled, she will be officially made heir apparent to the throne just like how the current king was made Crown Prince of Thailand in 1972.

We’re not but, as far as I remember, no report was made to indicate deterioration of the Queen Mother’s mental capacities. After all these years, she was just in such a poor health and frail state but fully conscious of what is going on.

Indeed quite interesting. I always thought that the King's son would be the heir apparent as his only son (though I must confess that Princess Bajrakitiyabha is the most "capable" of all the King's children, she seems very devoted to perform royal duties).


Considering that she is 42 years old, is the Princess really engaged? Or was that just a rumor? But, if she really becomes the Crown Princess, it will be very interesting. Perhaps it will give a boost of popularity of the Monarchy in Thailand.

The king has 5 sons and 2 daughters. Dipangkorn is his youngest child (by his third wife). His 4 older sons (by his second wife) live in the USA and apparently are not in touch with their father after their banishment; although their (full) younger sister (Sirivannavari Nariratana) returned to Thailand and is very much part of the Thai royal family.

A couple of years ago there were rumours, partly from journalist Andrew McGregor that she was engaged to Colonel Paritat Bunnag but nothing was ever announced anywhere.

There are also rumours that Prince Dipangkorn has health problems but again nothing is confirmed at all.

So only rumors so far. I guess we will have to wait and see how it goes. But the King will have to announce the heir sooner than later.

I do know about that. I said "only son" because he is the only son eligible for the throne since the others were banished by their father...

There were pictures released of the Princess, the Colonel and the King that were retracted only a few hours later so I don't think it was only rumours but obviously something happened behind the closed doors of the palace.
