Sujarinee Vivacharawongse (Thai: ?; RTGSSucharini Wiwatcharawong; 26 May 1962), née Yuvadhida Polpraserth (Thai: ? ?; RTGSYuwathida Phonprasoet), stage-named Yuvadhida Suratsawadee (Thai: ? ; RTGSYuwathida Suratsawadi) or nicknamed Benz (Thai: ), is a Thai actress who was a consort and then the second wife of Vajiralongkorn, then the Crown Prince of Thailand, from 1994 to 1996. She now lives in the United States.[2]

Early life

Sujarinee was born on 26 May 1962, the daughter of Thanit Polpraserth and Yaovalak Komarakul na Nagara. Her father was a musician and composer in the Sunthraphon band.[3]


At fifteen, she was introduced to Thai filmography when actress Sarinthip Siriwan helped her to find a job in the drama Kot haeng kam and Manut pralat. In 1977, she co-starred in the films Sip ha yok yok sip hok mai yon and Lueat nai din. In 1978 and 1979, she was a leading actress in the film Saen saep, Ai thuek and Hua chai thi chom din.

In August 1979, she announced her retirement from the entertainment industry.[4]

Marriage and divorce

When Vajiralongkorn was introduced to Yuvadhida Polpraserth, she was an aspiring actress. She became his steady companion and gave birth to four sons and a daughter:[5]

  1. Prince Juthavachara Mahidol ( Chuthawat Mahidon, born 29 August 1979), married Riya Gough on 1 September 2013.
  2. Prince Vacharaesorn Mahidol ( Watchareson Mahidon, born 27 May 1981)
  3. Prince Chakriwat Mahidol ( Chakkriwat Mahidon, born 26 February 1983)
  4. Prince Vatcharawee Mahidol ( Watcharawi Mahidon, born 14 June 1985)
  5. Princess Busyanambejra Mahidol ( Butnamphet Mahidon, born 8 January 1987)[6]

They were married at a palace ceremony in February 1994, where they were blessed by the King and the Princess Mother, but not by the Queen. After the marriage, she was allowed to change her name to Mom Sujarinee Mahidol na Ayudhya (? ? ), signifying she was a commoner married to a royal. She was also commissioned as a major in the Royal Thai Army and took part in royal ceremonies with Vajiralongkorn. When she fled to Britain in 1996 with their children, Vajiralongkorn had posters placed around his palace accusing her of committing adultery with Anand Rotsamkhan ( ), a 60-year-old air marshal.[7]

Sujarinee, together with her children, moved to England in 1996. While she and her sons are reportedly banished from Thailand, her only daughter, Princess Busyanambejra (later changed to HRH Princess Sirivannavari) returned to Thailand to live with Vajiralongkorn.[8] Sujarinee and her sons have since moved to the United States.[9]
