Princess Srirasm, the Royal Consort to the Crown Prince of Thailand[3] (Thai: ศรีรัศมิ์; Thai pronunciation: [sǐ.rát]; RTGS: Si Rat) or Srirasm, Princess of Thailand, (born Srirasm Akharapongpreecha, 9 December 1971; Thai: ศรีรัศมิ์ อัครพงศ์ปรีชา; RTGS: Sirat Akkharaphongpricha) is the consort of Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn. Born to a family of modest means, she entered the service of the Crown Prince at the age of 22. She married the crown prince in February 2001.

Early life[edit]

HRH Princess Srirasm was born in Samut Songkhram Province to a family of modest means. She was the third child of Aphirut (Thai: อภิรุจ) and Wanthanee (Thai: วันทนีย์) Akharaphongpreecha. She has four siblings.[4] She attended college at Bangkok Business College and 1993, at age 22, entered the service of Vajiralongkorn as a "lady-in-waiting". Srirasm enrolled in Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University in 1997 and graduated in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in management science. Vajiralongkorn personally bestowed her with her diploma. In 2007 she received a Master of Arts degree in Home Economics from Kasetsart University.

Marriage and family[edit]

HRH Princess Srirasm married the Crown Prince of Thailand on 10 February 2001 in a private ceremony at the prince's Nonthaburi Palace. The public was informed of the event some time afterwards. The prince, who had married twice before and has children with his previous wives, stated it was his intention to settle down: “I am now 50 years old and think I should have a complete family.”[5] After the wedding, Srirasm was styled Mom Srirasm Mahidol na Ayudhya (Mahidol is the surname of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and King Ananda Mahidol, and the na Ayudhya designation signifies non-titled descendants of the Chakri Dynasty.

On Valentines Day, 14 February 2005, it was announced that Srirasm was pregnant. On 29 April 2005, a son named Dipangkorn Rasmijoti was born via caesarean section at Siriraj Hospital. Because of the birth, she was granted by King Bhumibol Adulyadej the title "princess of Thailand" and style "Her Royal Highness" as the royal consort of Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn. A royal ceremony, called "Phra Ratchaphithi Somphot Duan Lae Khuen Phra U," to celebrate the first month of the baby was held on 17 June 2005 at the Anantasamakom Throne Hall in Bangkok.[6]

Srirasm initiated and launched the "Sai Yai Rak Jak Mae Su Luk" (Love and care from mother to children) campaign which promoted breast feeding.[7][8] The campaign features images of her son.

Controversy[edit]

On 12 November 2009, a home video was released to Wikileaks showing Vajiralongkorn and a topless Princess Srirasm celebrating the birthday of the Prince's poodle dog.[9] Part of this video was broadcast on the 'Foreign Correspondent' programme on the Australian ABC TV channel on 13 April 2010, as part of a half-hour documentary critical of the Royal family of Thailand.[10]

In October 2012, the Princess made news headlines when she and her entourage bought large amounts of antiques in a daylong shopping session at Battlesbridge, Essex. [11]
