Princess Anne's, 73, injuries from her accident at her Gatcombe Park home on the evening of Sunday, June 23, have now become a "cause for concern."

"It's kind of worrying because she just can't really remember what happened," royal commentator Charlotte Griffiths told GBN's Andrew Pierce and Bev Turner. "And she was completely alone in the field."

Princess Anne is said to be experiencing minor memory impairments following her accident on June 23, 2024.

"She was at the estate and she's known to take evening strolls to check on her horses alone," she added. "It's obviously something she does regularly, but I dread to think how long she was there on her own. I hope she wasn't there on her own unconscious — she was maybe kicked by a horse."

As The Royal Observer previously reported, Buckingham Palace said of the hard-working HRH's accident: "The Princess Royal has sustained minor injuries and concussion following an incident on the Gatcombe Park estate yesterday evening," the message read. "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."

Anne, Princess Royal is due to celebrate her 74th birthday on August 15, 2024.

In highlighting the seriousness of Anne's injuries, Pierce observed: "Concussion can have all sorts of complicating factors — the fact she can't remember what happened should be cause for concern."

Griffiths replied: "I think really concerning. It's actually not the first time she's been concussed before — back in the 70s, she said the whole day was gone, she had an accident while she was on horseback. She's going to be in for the whole week, which suggests that they are taking this very seriously, although they did say she's expected to make a full recovery."

"I really hope it isn't swift, actually, because any sort of post-traumatic amnesia with a head injury would suggest that it was fairly significant," Turner pointed out. "You'd like to think they wouldn't rush her back to work."

Griffiths responded: "I'm sure they won't, but she is so fundamental. She did 30 percent of this year's royal engagements earlier this year. The Japan state visit today is actually really important. There's a lot of pressure on this event. It's going to be really worrying for them that she's not there — obviously, they're worried about her health, but they just they needed her there."

Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako of Japan are undertaking a State Visit to the United Kingdom where King Charles III and other senior royals will host the world's only remaining emperor and empress. Princess Anne was due to take part in the welcoming ceremony for the Asian royals.
