British Royal Suffering From Memory Loss After Horse Accident


Following an incident involving one of her beloved horses, the Princess Royal is currently hospitalized at Southmead Hospital in Bristol. The 73-year-old Princess Anne sustained head injuries and a concussion while walking on her Gloucestershire estate, Gatcombe Park, and was admitted for a second night on Monday.

Details of the accident remain unclear due to her concussion, but her medical team noted that the injuries appeared consistent with an impact from a horse’s head or legs. Despite this, the Princess was conscious by Monday, and her memory loss, which pertains only to the incident, is thought likely to be temporary, as reported by The Telegraph.

She was initially treated at the scene, and although an air ambulance was called, she was transported by road to Southmead, the largest hospital in the South West. The facility is notable for its specialist neuroscience unit and serves as the only adult major trauma center in the Severn Major Trauma Network. A former Olympian equestrian, the Princess is no stranger to equine-related activities, which makes the accident all the more affecting.

Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, the husband of Princess Anne, stopped by the hospital on Tuesday, following her second overnight stay. He shared a positive update with those concerned about her condition. “She is recovering well, thank you. We are both profoundly grateful to the medical team and hospital support staff for their expert care — and to the emergency services who were all so wonderful at the scene,” he explained.

He continued, expressing gratitude for the outpouring of support: “We are both deeply touched by all the kind messages we have received from so many people near and far. It means a great deal.”

Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Monday: “The Princess Royal has sustained minor injuries and concussion following an incident on the Gatcombe Park estate yesterday evening. Her Royal Highness remains in Southmead Hospital, Bristol, as a precautionary measure for observation and is expected to make a full and swift recovery.”

“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.”

Princess Anne, also known as the Princess Royal, is the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Known for her strong work ethic and no-nonsense attitude, Princess Anne is one of the busiest royals in terms of public engagements.

She is well known for her lifelong passion for equestrianism, competing in eventing at the highest levels and representing Great Britain in the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Her love for horses extends beyond competition; she’s been involved with various equestrian charities and the administration of the sport.
