Trouble continues to haunt the British royal family. This time, Princess Anne was rushed to hospital due to a concussion and minor head injuries she received from her horse.

Charles III's sister was injured while riding horseback on her Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire. Note that the 73-year-old princess is an experienced horsewoman and even participated in the Olympics, writes theDaily Mail.

Due to a concussion, the exact circumstances of the incident cannot yet be established. Medical workers believe the horse may have kicked the princess.

The princess's representative stressed that the incident was an accident. The monarch's sister is under close medical supervision and could return home this week.

— Her Highness is receiving the help she needs. Other details have not yet been disclosed— noted at the palace.

At the time of the incident, Anne's husband Tim Lawrence and her children Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips were at the estate. An air ambulance arrived at the scene but was not required.

Princess Anne was treated at the scene before Her Highness was taken to Southmead Hospital in Bristol for tests, treatment and observation. She went to the medical facility, accompanied by her husband.

The doctors' forecasts are very optimistic — The princess should make a full recovery. However, she will be forced to miss nine official engagements over the next seven days, along with the royal visit to Canada scheduled for this Sunday, June 30.

Princess Anne is a key member of the royal family. Recently, even more responsibilities have fallen on her shoulders, as King Charles and his daughter-in-law, Princess of Wales Kate Middleton, are undergoing treatment for cancer.
