Said to have been hurt by a horse while strolling on the royal estate, the 73-year-old Princess Royal She most likely had little head injuries from the horse's head or legs. Before she was driven to Southmead Hospital, emergency personnel attended to her on scene. Anne is still under medical observation and has just undergone tests and treatments.

The only daughter of late Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Anne is set to be released later this week. Her spokesman said: "Her Royal Highness is recovering well, is in a comfortable condition and is being kept in hospital as a precautionary measure for further observation."

Her planned activities for the week—including a State Visit and an official trip to Canada—have been postponed while she heals. "Her Royal Highness's activities for the next week will be postponed per doctor's recommendation. Her Royal Highness apologises to anyone who might be inconvenienced or disappointed as a result," her spokesman said.
