Sirikit, the 86-year-old queen mother of Thailand, has been discharged from hospital after a two-week stay, the Royal Household Bureau said on Tuesday.

She was taken to Chulalongkorn hospital on July 22, for an infection in the respiratory tract.

The doctors said Sirikit’s fever and coughing had subsided, allowing her to return to Chitralada Royal Villa.

Sirikit was married to King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died in 2016 after seven decades on the throne, and is the mother of King Maha Vajiralongkorn.

She has suffered from numerous ailments and has rarely appeared in public in recent years.

Sirikit is revered as the nation’s mother figure and her birthday is celebrated as Thailand’s Mother’s Day. (Dpa/NAN)
