The German newspaper Bild has reported on yet another European shopping expedition by Thailand’s Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn, apparently getting stuff for kids and dogs.
The report begins:
He flies his own Boeing 737 around the world. His father has a fortune of 30 billion euros. He sends his jet from Bangkok to London to his favorite (takeaway) spring rolls…. And now the 60 year-old prince is in Hamburg with a large entourage for a shopping spree!
As usual, the prince is reported to have flown “his” Boeing 737-400 and as soon as it landed, two large Mercedes Benz sedans and eight vans were waiting on the tarmac to collect the prince and his entourage. The prince was whisked off to a suite at the Atlantic Hotel. The story reports that normally goes for 4500 EUR a night, although PPT found that it was only 3,800 Euros tonight. But we guess that the prince gets it for free as it is part of the Kempinski Hotels group, owned by the Crown Property Bureau.
Then the shopping began: “The caravan of ten cars stopped at the first tier Accessories Shop “Pet Shop Boyz” at the Schmilinskystraße (St. George).” Apparently several thousand Euros when on dogie delights and toys. Fu Fu will be ecstatic. The prince then drooped more loot at a toy store near by. The report says the shopping will continue in Munich.
