Queen Rania in 'good spirits' after heart procedure

Monday September 27, 2010

Queen Rania of Jordan is recuperating after undergoing treatment in New York for an irregular heart beat.

The 40-year-old royal underwent non-surgical catheterisation to restore a healthy heart rhythm.

A statement released by the palace confirmed the news, adding that the procedure went smoothly, and that the queen was "well" and in "good spirits".

She will remain in a New York hospital for two nights to recover and is expected to return home later this week.

The glamorous mum-of-four was in the States accompanying her husband King Abdulllah II while he attended UN General Assembly meetings in New York.

She also attended separate functions, including a panel on empowering women (pictured).
