The King of Thailand has been snapped in a crop top showing his belly whilst having an incognito bike ride with his family in Switzerland after he failed to tell authorities there that they were visiting.
Thai King Maha Vajiralongkorn, also known as Rama X, was snapped on Sunday with his wife and children as well as a large entourage going out for a cycle from the Seehotel Kastanienbaum situated on the Horw peninsula near the city of Lucerne, central Switzerland, according to local media.
Dressed in black cycling leggings, a black helmet and a tight purple belly top the 66-year-old was seen climbing onto his bike before cycling off in a stark contrast to the usual formal clothing the king can be seen wearing at formal occasions.
Swiss police confirmed they were not aware of the royal visitor. The hotel he was snapped outside failed to comment.
Earlier in the week the royals had been spotted at the Kreuz Bertiswil Restaurant in Rothenburg, Lucerne.
Back in May King Vajiralongkorn was crowned in a three-day coronation ceremony two years after his father’s death.
This is not the first time the Thai King has been snapped in a crop top, and he is known for his eccentric dress sense.
Back in 2016, King Maha Vajiralongkorn, then dubbed the playboy prince due to his eccentric lifestyle was snapped in a crop top revealing all his tattoos in a shopping centre in Munich, Germany. The tattoos were claimed to be stick ons and not permanent.
Maha Vajiralongkorn is no stranger to scandals, as in 2017 he brought his mistress and his former air stewardess wife to his father’s lavish cremation service.
Before becoming King Vajiralongkorn reportedly spent much of his time lapping up a luxurious lifestyle in the mountains of southern Germany Austria and Switzerland, using fast cars, women and money to pass the time.
