BANGKOK — Thailand's elderly queen was hospitalized with a rapid heartbeat that returned to normal after a day of treatment, the palace said Saturday.

The brief statement by the Royal Household Bureau said 78-year-old Queen Sirikit, who is the wife of Thailand's constitutional monarch, was admitted to a Bangkok hospital on Thursday but did not say when she was expected to check out.

"Her Majesty the Queen had a rapid heartbeat. The doctors therefore asked her to travel to and stay at Chulalongkorn Hospital on the night of Sept. 30," the statement said.
