Bangkok, Thailand Eureka News Now —

Thailand’s Princess Bajrakitiyabha is in stable condition after being hospitalized with a heart problem, Thailand’s royal palace said in a statement on Thursday.

The statement said the 44-year-old princess lost consciousness early Wednesday in the northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima, where she was treated at a local hospital.

She was later flown to Bangkok by helicopter after her condition stabilized and was treated at Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn Hospital on Thursday.

The princess lost consciousness while training her dog for a championship organized by the army, the palace said.

Princess Bajrakitiyabha is the eldest daughter of King Maha Vajiralongkorn, but is not in line for the throne as the crown is passed to male heirs first.

She is a former Thai Ambassador to Austria and has worked on a number of projects with the United Nations, including advocacy for women’s rights.
