German politicians have asked the country’s foreign ministry to explain why the king of Thailand has spent several weeks in a luxury Bavarian hotel during the coronavirus lockdown.

King … Vajiralongkorn has been staying in the Grand Hotel Sonnenbichl in Garmisch Partenkirchen, a town close to the German-Austrian border.

Margarete Bause, a Green party member of parliament, said a ban on tourism should have prevented the king from staying there.

King … Vajiralongkorn is a frequent visitor to Germany. He has made no comment.
