Bangkok: The royal palace of Thailand says Queen Sirikit has been hospitalised with fever and lung infection, a month after her husband, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, died.

Today's statement says the 84-year-old Sirikit had high fever on Wednesday. She was admitted to Chulalongkorn Hospital and doctors succeeded in bringing down the fever on Thursday, when she was able to "breathe well and eat."

It says an X-ray revealed a lung infection for which she is being treated with antibiotics. The queen has been in poor health for years and is known to have suffered a stroke.

Bhumibol, the world's longest serving monarch, died on Oct. 13 after battling several illnesses for years. The country is observing a one-year mourning period.
