Sirivannavari Nariratana: What she said, really meant and definitely didn’t

Sirivannavari Nariratana

What she said:

“If they treat me as a princess, I would not be here. I’d be in another stable, with beautiful decorations.”

Thai princess,Sirivannavari Nariratana,  is convinced that she is not favored by her fellow athletes at the Incheon Asian Games. The royal debuted in the dressage competition on Saturday, the 20th of September, 2014. Her horse: Prince Charming.

Nariratana is the grand-daughter to Thailand’s regent and was once listed among Forbes’ Top 20 hottest aristocrats.

She was also a participant in badminton at the 2006 Games.

Sirivannavari  said:

“They treat me like friends, a normal rider.”

She added:

“Everybody has the same — the one thing they give me is respect.” 

On her preparation for her first day at the Games:

“For me, it was no problem, it’s like: wake up, some vitamin C, a lot of water and feel fresh, good music — I listened to Rihanna this morning.” 

What she really meant:

“All they’re interested in is what I can do on the field. Will I perform as expected? Am I a competitor? My blue blood lineage counts for little. And my steed cannot differentiate between a noble and a commoner.”

What she definitely didn’t:

“This is just me jockeying for PR. What do you think? Why don’t you join me under my umbrella?
(Ella ella eh eh eh).”
