Princess Anne, the sister of King Charles III, has been discharged from Southmead Hospital after a five-night stay due to a minor head injury believed to be caused by a horse, Buckingham Palace confirmed on Friday.

The 73-year-old royal, daughter of the late Queen Elizabeth II, returned to her residence at Gatcombe Park in southwest England. Her husband, Tim Laurence, expressed gratitude to the medical team at Southmead Hospital for their care and kindness during her short stay.

Anne sustained the head injury on Sunday while walking on the grounds of her estate, where horses were present. Medical experts indicated that the injuries were consistent with impact from a horse’s head or legs, resulting in a concussion that left Anne unable to recall the incident.

As a former Olympic equestrian, Princess Anne is expected to undergo a period of recuperation at Gatcombe Park before resuming her public duties, in line with her medical team’s advice. Her upcoming engagements have been postponed, including a planned trip to Canada this week.

The Palace had initially stated on Monday that Anne was on track to make a full recovery from the injury, emphasizing the importance of taking adequate time to heal and recuperate from head trauma.
