I don't mean this to sound rude but is she actually any good or was this just a token award as she is daughter of the king?

Thank you. Exactly what I was thinking as well Snare
no idea at all guys, i never heard about her before and i wonder if she got this only because she is the king's daughter Roll Eyes

I had never heard of her either, so I googled her.  She is quite an accomplished sportswoman.  https://www.thenational.a...s-at-asian-games-1.240086

The Thai grey men should incapacitate this loser, install his sister as regent and have her raise the crown prince.

This would solve a plethora  of problems,  it will remove king crop top, replace him with the better option  and ensure that their future king becomes a decent human being and a good king.

Princess Ubolratana: Thai royal to stand as PM candidate






In an unprecedented move, the sister of Thailand's king has joined the race to be the country's next prime minister.

Princess Ubolratana Mahidol, 67, will stand for a party allied to divisive ex-prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, according to registration papers.

Her decision breaks with the tradition of the Thai royal family publicly staying out of politics.

Thailand's election is scheduled to take place on 24 March.

The election is being closely watched as the first chance for Thailand to return to democracy after five years under military rule.
Who is Princess Ubolratana Mahidol?

Born in 1951, Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya Sirivadhana Barnavadi is the oldest child of Thailand's beloved late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. He died in 2016.

She attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and after marrying an American in 1972, she gave up her royal title. After her divorce she returned to Thailand in 2001 and once again started participating in royal life.

The princess engages actively in social media and has also starred in several Thai movies.

She has three children, one of whom died in the 2004 tsunami. The other two now also live in Thailand.

The princess has registered for the Thai Raksa Chart party, which is loyal to the controversial Shinawatra family that has dominated Thai politics for years.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Princess Ubolratana reiterated that she had relinquished all her royal titles and that she now lives as a commoner.

She said she wanted to exercise her rights as an ordinary citizen by offering her candidacy for prime minister. She said she would work with all sincerity and determination for the prosperity of all Thais.

Princess Ubolratana: The royal upending Thai politics

Thai politics has taken many bizarre turns in recent years. The submission of King Vajiralongkorn's elder sister as a prime ministerial candidate is one of the strangest, and turns politics on its head.

She should have become Queen, clearly her brother isn't interested (or terribly suitable)

The king is not amused: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-47175604

It's scary to me that these people are in power, they don't seem particularly suitable but that's a monarchy for you. Right of birth rather than qualifications. All the more reason she should stay out of politics, one of them in power is bad enough.

Wellll, isn't that interesting.  My gut reaction to this is: Someone needs to kick the king in the rear...

The party that nominated a Thai princess to run for prime minister has said it will comply with the king's statement opposing the move.

He probably wants his poodle elected. I don't even want to know how he and the queen celebrated PM Fido's victory Dead
