Prince Dipangkorn Rasmijoti (born 29 April 2005; Thai: ทีปังกรรัศมีโชติ; Thai pronunciation: [tʰiː.paŋ.kɔːn.rát.sà.mǐː.tɕʰôːt]; rtgs: Thipangkonratsamichot) is a prince of Thailand, a member of the country's Chakri dynasty and heir presumptive to the throne of Thailand. He is the fifth son of King Vajiralongkorn. His mother is Srirasmi Suwadee, the king's third legal wife. His father also has a daughter by his first wife and five children (four sons and a daughter) by his second wife; however, all the children of the second wife were born before the then-crown prince married their mother. Thus, Dipangkorn is the only legitimate son of the king.
The prince is styled as His Royal Highness. A royal ceremony, called Phra Ratchaphithi Somphot Duan Lae Khuen Phra U, to celebrate the first month of the prince was held on 17 June 2005 at Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall in Bangkok.
Position to the throne
Prince Dipangkorn is the heir presumptive to his father and first in line to the throne. However, because of Vajiralongkorn's December 2014 divorce from Srirasmi, Dipangkorn's position in the line of succession is uncertain. The 1924 Palace Law on Succession lists "the order in the line of succession", following the first-born son of the king to be "the first-born son of the said prince and his royal consort" followed by "younger sons, in order, of the said prince and his royal consort." When Vajiralongkorn ended his relationship with his second wife, he disowned their four sons and said they had renounced their royal titles. However, the Royal Palace continued to recognize their right to use the style HSH, or His Serene Highness.
