Princess Anne sustained minor injuries and a concussion following an incident on an estate in southwest England, Buckingham Palace said Monday.

The 73-year-old sister of King Charles III was hospitalized as a precautionary measure for observation and is expected to make a full recovery, the palace said.

It said the incident happened on Sunday on the Gatcombe Park estate.

Though the exact cause of the injuries is unconfirmed, there were horses in the area.

Her medical team said her head injuries were consistent with a potential impact from a horse’s head or legs.

“The Princess Royal has sustained minor injuries and concussion following an incident on the Gatcombe Park estate yesterday evening,’’ the palace said in a statement.

“Her Royal Highness remains in Southmead Hospital, Bristol, as a precautionary measure for observation and is expected to make a full and swift recovery,” it said.

“The King has been kept closely informed and joins the whole Royal Family in sending his fondest love and well-wishes to The Princess for a speedy recovery.”

The princess was walking within the protected perimeter of the estate when the incident occurred, Britain’s Press Association said.

Emergency services were called to the estate, and she was treated at the scene before being transferred to the hospital.

Her husband, Vice Adm. Tim Laurence, accompanied her.

Princess Anne, the toughest member of the Royal Family, was injured by one of her beloved horses while on an evening walk at her home yesterday.
She is in hospital but expected to make a full recovery – and I expect she will be back riding soon.
She will hate all this fuss.

Anne is one of the hardest-working members of the royal family, having stepped in and taken more duties in light of Charles’ cancer diagnosis.

Her engagements for the days ahead will be postponed, and she will not attend the state dinner being held in honor of the emperor of Japan.
