Princess Anne Sustains Head Injury In Horse Incident At Gatcombe Park Estate

Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, is currently hospitalized at Southmead Hospital in Bristol after sustaining minor head injuries and a concussion following an incident at her Gatcombe Park estate. The 73-year-old royal, known for her equestrian pursuits, was reportedly injured by a horse on the estate on Sunday.

According to Buckingham Palace, Princess Anne is under observation at Southmead Hospital as a precaution and is expected to fully recover from her injuries. Her husband, Adm Sir Tim Laurence, and children, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, were present at the estate during the incident.

The palace confirmed that King Charles, Queen Camilla, Prince of Wales, Duke of Edinburgh, and Duke of York have been informed about Princess Anne’s hospitalization and are sending their well-wishes for her speedy recovery.

Princess Anne, an accomplished horsewoman and Olympic medalist, was walking on the Gatcombe Park estate at the time of the incident and was within the protected perimeter of her residence when the accident occurred. Her injuries, which include a concussion and minor head wounds, are believed to be consistent with contact with a horse’s head or legs.

Despite the unfortunate incident, Princess Anne’s medical team has indicated that she is recovering well and is in a comfortable condition. However, due to the concussion, the exact details of the accident remain unclear.

As per Buckingham Palace, Princess Anne’s scheduled engagements for the upcoming week have been postponed on doctors’ advice. This includes her planned visit to Canada and attendance at the state banquet for the Japanese state visit. Plans are being revised in consultation with the Canadian government.
