Thai king strips his consort of royal titles for disloyalty
King Maha Vajiralongkorn, 67, ordered the dismissal of two male guards from the "bedroom section," the Royal Gazette announced late on Tuesday.
"They have committed inappropriate acts and adultery," the statement said.
The other two officers failed to meet the standards of the royal guard and were dismissed without compensation, according to the gazette.

She was accused of disloyalty and "acting against the appointment" of Queen Suthida.
Vajiralongkorn married Suthida, his fourth wife, earlier this year.
The former consort Sineenat has not been seen in public since her dismissal.
After her fall from grace six other palace officials were sacked for committing "evil actions".
