The National Archives of Australia have substantial holdings on Thai Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn’s years in Australia. One of the files is “Closed”, some are currently “Withheld pending agency advice” or “Not yet examined”, and others are “Open”. The archival material covers the Crown Prince’s initial time at the King’s School in Sydney and his training at the Royal Military College, Duntroon. There are also photographs and other materials that focus on his Special Air Service training in Western Australia and his subsequent official visits.
