‘Thai king’s eldest daughter in hospital with heart problem’


BANGKOK: The eldest son of Thai people King Maha Vajiralongkorn was hospitalized due to heart problems and her condition has stabilized to a certain extent, the royal palace said on Thursday. Princess BajrakitiyabhaThe 44-year-old fell ill after losing consciousness Wednesday in the country’s northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima and was treated at a local hospital.
The palace said she was airlifted to Bangkok after her condition stabilized to a certain extent. The princess is one of three children of King Vajiralongkorn who holds the official title, making her eligible to the throne under the Palace’s 1924 Law of Succession and the country’s constitution. King Vajiralongkorn has yet to officially appoint an heir since becoming monarch in 2016 and there has been no formal discussion about the possibility of the princess taking the throne.
The palace said the princess, who has worked with the United Nations and served as Thailand’s ambassador to Austria, Slovenia and Slovakia, was attending a canine championship organized by the military when she passed out. She was treated at a hospital in Bangkok on Thursday, where she is being treated and examined, it said.
While the palace’s law of succession stipulates that the heir to the throne must be a male, a constitutional amendment in 1974 allowed a daughter of the royal line to ascend the throne if the successor has not been named.
