Thailand Tatler - - CONCIERGE INBOX -

hu­lalax­ana varanand Chu­dad­huj lives in Lon­don but has been spot­ted at events in Bangkok so of­ten that one could be mis­taken for think­ing that she has moved back here. Es­pe­cially in the past year, dur­ing which time she has made around 10 vis­its since Jan­uary. Mar­ried to MR Dilok Ni­cholas Chu­dad­huj, the cou­ple have flown back every month and more to at­tend the royal funeral rites of his first cousin once re­moved, the late King Bhu­mi­bol Adulyadej. Khun­chai Nikky, as he is also known, is the son of Prince Varanand Dhavaj and English lady Pamela Smee and has lived in Lon­don all his life, mak­ing only oc­ca­sional vis­its back to Thai­land. A for­mer rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the Thai Of­fice of the Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion look­ing af­ter Thai stu­dents in the UK, Chu­lalax­ana of­ten finds her­self play­ing host to guests from Thai­land. How­ever, with her fre­quent trips back here in be­tween tak­ing care of her mother-in-law who re­cently had a stroke, this tal­ented artist and cook may now find her­self with less time to wel­come her friends in Lon­don.
