Princess Bajrakitiyabha of Thailand is in stable condition after being hospitalized for a heart problem, the Thai 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 undergoing treatment at Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn Hospital on Thursday.

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

Princess Bajrakitiyabha is the eldest daughter of King Maha Vajiralongkorn, although she is not next in line to the throne as the crown is passed down to male heirs first.

She is a former Thai ambassador to Austria and has worked on various projects with the United Nations, including the defense of women’s rights.
