That expression on Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn's face.

Very interesting, and the timing is unexpected.

The king and lie: Thai ruler's consort lays at his feet as he marries the former flight attendant in surprise move days before his coronation

This seems very irrational, but then frankly nothing about the Thai King seems particularly rational.

The news is not surprising. Queen Suthida's pink ensemble is lovely.

The article is a bit misleading in narration. Laying before the feet or prostrations are common in Thai culture. It's a gesture of utmost respects usually with monks or someone older. Princess Galyani Vadhana, despite being older, also prostrated before King Bhumibol's feet when she was made Princess of Naradhiwas in 1995.
And no, nothing under this reign made sense and not gonna make sense, probably.

I would’ve thought the King would’ve played the role of King & Queen.

Bangkok Thailand's King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun (L) and Queen Suthida (C) and his daughter Princess Bajrakitiyabha pay homage to the statue of former King Chulalongkorn or King Rama V ahead of the royal coronation at the Royal Plaza in Bangkok.

Apparently the new Queen and her older stepdaughter are the same age.

Wikipedia - although not always the best of sources - might be a good start. She once was a flight attendant; and raised quickly in military ranks since joining her now husband's guard in 2014.

Yes, she is only a few months older. Her birthday is June 1978, her stepdaughter was born in December. She is only 9 years older then her youngest step-daughter for that matter. The only one of her stepchildren she is old enough to be the parent of is the new crown prince who is 14.

They have been involved since her stewardess days, when he was married to his third wife.

But he is raised in Germany by his father and the new queen - he goes to school near Tutzing in Upper Bavaria.

And where is his mother? He has right to have regular contact with her.

Apparently his mother Srirasmi Suwadee is under house arrest in Ratchaburi under appalling conditions.

Just saw this on twitter. I don't follow Thailand's royals much but WOW. Glad the King's 2nd wife escaped.
