Vajiralongkorn spends much of his time with his mistress at the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl in the German resort town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Suthida, meanwhile, reportedly spends most of her time alone at the Hotel Waldegg in Engelberg in Switzerland.

Most doubt if the last king, Rama IX aka King Bhumibol, was really loved.
Lese majeste law was heavily enforced and severly punished anyone who expressed even the tiniest criticism against the monarchy.
People have been used to living in fear, so I wonder if it was ever true love.

Where do you think that $30 billion came from?

Maybe he did it personally, maybe his father did, maybe it was his grandfather, but no King or Queen ever worked for that money. Whether that be the Assad in Syria, this guy in Thailand, MBS in Saudi Arabia or Lizzie in England.
