Well now, who is this bad boy of the Thai monarchy, walking around in an at-best brave choice of a crop top, sporting some colorful tattoos? Why, it’s none other than the king himself, Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun. We’d like to think his friends call him “Bodi,” if he has any. This newly-crowned ruler of Thailand looks like a really chill dude we’d love to kick it with. Here’s a rundown of what we know about the Thai ruler.

This dude came to power very recently after a long period of mourning for his father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who was one of the most beloved kings in the history of Thailand, ruling for 70 years. Before this, Bodi spent most of his adult life in the UK and US training with military forces and learning to fly. That’s pretty chill.

Elizabeth II has been Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand since 6 February 1952

The Queen hasn’t travelled to Greece ever since taking the crown.

She visited once as a young woman before marrying Prince Philip in 1950 after being invited by Prince Philips first cousin once removed, King Paul.

Royal historian Hugo Vickers told the BBC that Prince Philip is technically a “Greek Prince,” so it is an “interesting” omission.

He stated: ”Prince Philip doesn’t like Greece, because they put his father on trial, and he might have been executed. In 1922, they all had to flee.”

Vickers also believes that the Queen might not have been invited by the current Greek president since.

Although the Queen visited once as a young woman before marrying Prince Philip in 1950, she has not returned to the sunny climes of the once known Hellas.

When she made that visit before being the monarch, she had been invited there by Prince Philip’s first cousin once removed, King Paul.

Royal historian Hugo Vickers told the BBC that Prince Philip is technically a “Greek Prince,” so it is an “interesting” omission.
