After being hospitalized on Sunday night after allegedly being kicked by a horse, the 73-year-old Princess Royal is “expected to make a full and swift recovery,” according to Buckingham Palace.Following an almost two-hour lunchtime visit on Tuesday, her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence was seen leaving the hospital where Anne is receiving treatment with a blue cooler bag.

“Just a few little treats from home,” Sir Tim said when asked if he had taken anything for the princess. Not long later, Zara Tindall, Anne’s daughter, paid a visit to the hospital.

The King’s sister Anne was said to have experienced memory loss, according to The Telegraph, but they clarified that this was limited to the incident and would likely pass quickly.

After being hospitalized on Sunday night after allegedly being kicked by a horse, the 73-year-old Princess Royal is "expected to make a full and swift recovery," according to Buckingham Palace.

When the emergency services hurried to her estate, the neighbors stated they “thought the worst”. One man, who wished to remain anonymous, stated: “I saw an air ambulance landing on her estate and I thought ‘oh my goodness, I hope it’s not Anne’.

“And then the police helicopter started circling about ten minutes later and I thought the worst.”

What is known and unknown about the incident is as follows.

What is known

We do know that when the tragedy occurred, Anne—a talented horsewoman who participated in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal—was strolling inside the gated area of her Gatcombe Park home.

Her head injuries are consistent with a possible impact from a horse’s head or legs, according to her medical team.

After receiving emergency care on the estate, including from an air ambulance, the princess was taken to Southmead Hospital in Bristol for further testing, treatment, and monitoring.

Her spouse, Vice Admiral Tim Laurence, accompanied her.

“Her Royal Highness is recovering well, is in a comfortable condition, and is being kept in hospital as a precautionary measure for further observation,” a spokesman for Buckingham Palace stated.

Along with her husband, the princess’s son Peter Phillips and daughter Zara Tindall were staying on the estate at the time.

On Sunday night, word was sent to the King and Queen, the princess’s siblings, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex, and her nephew, the Prince of Wales.

The palace further stated: “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.”

Although Anne is anticipated to be able to go home later this week, her injuries will prevent her from attending a number of events.

These include a visit to Canada on Sunday and Monday to commemorate the entombment of an unknown soldier who died in the First World War, and the state banquet for the Japanese State Visit on Tuesday.

“On doctors’ advice, Her Royal Highness’s engagements for the week ahead will be postponed,” a royal spokeswoman stated. “Her Royal Highness sends her apologies to any who may be inconvenienced or disappointed as a result.”

“The Japanese State Visit will go ahead as planned, though sadly Her Royal Highness will be unable to attend the State banquet tomorrow.”

What is unknown

The specific type of treatment Anne is undergoing is unknown to us.

According to a representative for Buckingham Palace, “Her Royal Highness is receiving appropriate expert care. No further details are being shared at this stage.”

Although Anne is thought to be awake, the specifics of the event cannot yet be determined because of her concussion. According to Mail Online, she can’t remember what happened.

Furthermore, nobody knows who sounded the alert initially.

“Her Royal Highness will remain in Southmead Hospital unless or until her medical team advise otherwise,” the palace spokesman continued.

Which Royal family members will be sent in her stead for any of the formal engagements she is missing are still unknown.

Sending prayers to the princess for a speedy recovery!
