Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana Rajakanya (Thai: สิริวัณณวรี นารีรัตนราชกัญญา;[fn 1] Thai pronunciation: [sì.rì.wān.wá(ʔ).riː.]; RTGSSiriwanwari Narirat Ratchakanya; born 8 January 1987) is a Princess of the Kingdom of Thailand and is the only daughter of King Vajiralongkorn and his former consort Sujarinee Vivacharawongse (commonly known as Yuvadhida Polpraserth) in the line of succession and to bear royal titles. She has produced works as a fashion designer, and competed in sports as an equestrian and former badminton player.[2]

Early life and education[edit]

She was born Mom Chao Busyanambejra Mahidol (Thai: บุษย์น้ำเพชร มหิดล; Thai pronunciation: [bùt.nám.pʰét má(ʔ).hì.dōn]; RTGSButnamphet Mahidon), but later changed to Mom Chao Chakkrityapha Mahidol (Thai: จักรกฤษณ์ยาภา มหิดล), and once again to Mom Chao Sirivanvari Mahidol (Thai: สิริวัณวรี มหิดล) upon order of Queen Sirikit.[3] She has four full siblings. Following her parents' divorce, her mother moved with her siblings to the United Kingdom, where her father ordered her abduction and return to Thailand.[4]

She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Chulalongkorn University and a master in design from École de la chambre syndicale de la couture parisienne. She was elevated to Princess status by royal command of her grandfather, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, on 15 June 2005.

Princess Sirivannavari represented Thailand in badminton in 2005 at 23rd South East Asian Games in the Philippines, winning a team gold.[5] In this, she follows in the footsteps of her grandfather, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who represented his country in international sailing events. A badminton tournament that made its debut in 2016, the Thailand Masters, was named as the Princess Sirivannavari Thailand Masters.

In 2007, she was invited by Pierre Balmain, the French couturier, to present her fashion show in Paris. Her debut Paris collection was titled Presence of the Past, which drew on memories of her royal grandmother as well as giving a modern interpretation to traditional Thai costume.[6] The following year, she presented her own fashion show in Paris.[7]

In 2008, she was included as 16th on the list of the "20 Hottest Young Royals", compiled by Forbes.[8]
