Well she was one of them for years before he married her. Not that any of them necessarily have much choice in the matter or like the situation.

I don't think the King is in want of more children from succession list stand point. I am sure he was aware that when he married her the chances of having children were slim to none.

There seem to be doubts about his youngest son.

As he is married to both of them, a son with any of them would according to the palace law of sucession 1924, replace Dipangkorn as 1:st in line...
So, a child by the concubine would also be higher in line than a child by a former wife? Would it matter whether this child would be a son or a daughter?

So, what exactly is the order? Sons go before daughters and children of the current wife (or concubine) are highest in line? And after that is based on birth order (as Princess Bajrakitiyabha apparently is higher than her younger half-sister by a later marriage, Princess Sirivannavari)?

According to Andrew MacGregor Marshall (per royalblog) the king was admitted to hospital because of Covid-19. There are rumors that the queen was also infected.

#ข่าวลือ (#rumour) is now trending on Twitter in Thailand.



Stock exchange also took an unusual dip today.



But everything seems “normally fine” according to the palace (scroll down the post to see English translation).

Despite the rumours, right now there is no sign the king’s illness is life-threatening. He has respiratory problems, probably not covid-related, and was in the ICU at Siriraj. Can’t confirm any of the wilder rumours #ข่าวลือ

Being admitted to ICU due to respiratory issues (which happens to be the main issue for people with Covid being admitted to ICU - has he had respiratory problems before?) sounds quite serious to me.

And there is quite a big range between 'everything is normally fine' and 'he is about to die'.

I don’t think the rumours are true that Vajiralongkorn is dead or dying, but he definitely had a health scare recently. Here is what we know #ข่าวลือ
