Princess Anne ‘Doing Fine’ After Horse Accident – Husband

Princess Anne, the sister of King Charles III, is recovering in the hospital after suffering a concussion at her rural house, her husband announced Tuesday.

“She’s doing fine — slow but sure,” Tim Laurence told reporters outside Southmead Hospital in Bristol, western England, where she was admitted on Sunday evening.

Anne, 73, was evacuated to the hospital after suffering minor head injuries and a concussion at Gatcombe Park on Sunday evening.

She is reported to have been kicked by a horse while wandering within the protective perimeter of the enormous estate, which organizes equestrian contests.

Her husband, retired navy commander Laurence, who has been with her since 1992, said she was “recovering well” and that they were both “profoundly grateful” to the medical staff who treated her at the scene and in hospital.

The Princess Royal, as she is commonly known, is a competent horsewoman who competed in the 1976 Montreal Olympics and is widely regarded as the most hardworking royal.

She stepped in to represent her brother while he was unable to attend public events due to cancer treatment, and she rode in his official birthday procession earlier this month.

However, the tragedy has caused her to cancel her appearance at a state banquet for visiting Japanese Emperor Naruhito on Tuesday evening, as well as a planned trip to Canada.

Buckingham Palace stated that she was in hospital “as a precautionary measure for observation and is expected to make a full and speedy recovery.”
