Princess Anne hospitalised with head injury
Princess Anne has been hospitalised after suffering minor injuries and a concussion in an "incident" at home.

The 73-year-old Princess Royal is staying at Southmead Hospital, Bristol, for observation, but is expected to make a “swift” recovery, according to a palace statement.

The BBC reports the head injury is thought to be caused by a horse, with sources suggesting her injury is consistent with an impact from a horse’s head or legs.

The statement released by Buckingham Palace reads:

“The Princess Royal has sustained minor injuries and concussion following an incident on the Gatcombe Park estate yesterday evening.

“Her Royal Highness remains in Southmead Hospital, Bristol, as a precautionary measure for observation and is expected to make a full and swift recovery.

“The King has been kept closely informed and joins the whole Royal Family in sending his fondest love and well-wishes to The Princess for a speedy recovery.”
