Thai Princess Bajrakitiyabha, who collapsed due to a heart problem three weeks ago, stays unconscious. Bajrakitiyabha (44), the possible heir to the throne, lost consciousness on December 15 due to severe heart arrhythmia resulting from a rash following a mycoplasma disease, a report published by the palace stated on Saturday. She is presently being treated in Bangkok.

She fell ill while preparing her dogs for the northeastern Nakhon Ratchasima province competition.

“Doctors continue to provide medicine and use equipment to support the functions of the heart, lung and kidney as well as using antibiotics while monitoring her condition closely,” it said.

The princess’ “overall condition is that she remains unconscious,” the palace said.

Bajrakitiyabha is one of three children of King Vajiralongkorn, making her suitable for the throne under a palace succession law and the country’s constitution.

There has been no official meeting on Princess Bajrakitiyabha accepting the throne, nor has the king ever indicated that the princess would take his place. She is one of three children with monarchical titles and a leader in his bodyguard unit.

Her situation has flared rumors of succession in online chats like Twitter. A government staffer who asked for obscurity told the Guardian that it was “hopeless” to suspect the line. “We wish for the monarchy reformation, but then, sadly, it’s not up to us,” they said.
