Another member of the Royal Family has been in hospital, but this time, there is no disease involved.

On Monday, Buckingham Palace announced that the Princess Royal, the daughter of the late Queen Elizabeth II and sister to King Charles, is currently in hospital near her country home in England.

According to the palace, the 73-year-old royal has suffered “minor injuries” and a concussion, and is being kept in hospital for observation “as a precaution.” She is, the statement added, “in a comfortable condition.”

According to her medical team, Princess Anne’s injuries are “consistent with potential impact with a horses’ head or legs.”

The injury is said to have happened at Gatcombe Park, Princess Anne’s country home.

The princess is expected to make a “full and swift recovery” but will no longer be making a scheduled trip to Newfoundland over the Canada Day holiday.

Earlier this month, it was announced by Newfoundland’s premier that Anne would be visiting the province in her capacity as Colonel In Chief of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, helping to mark the 100-year anniversary of the Newfoundland National War Memorial.

Doctors have now advised Anne not to make the trip, although there are apparently conversations with the Canadian government to revisit or adapt these plans somehow.

As per the Buckingham Palace statement, King Charles, whose recent hospital stay revealed his cancer diagnosis, has been kept closely informed about Anne’s health, and “joins the whole Royal Family in sending his fondest love and well-wishes to the Princess for a speedy recovery.”

The other royal to be hospitalized and who continues to undergo cancer treatment is Princess Catherine, wife of Prince William and daughter-in-law of King Charles.
