The Princess Royal sustained the injuries on Sunday evening and, according to the statement, remains in Bristol’s Southmead Hospital as a “precautionary measure”.

“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 palace said in statement.

The Princess will be unable to attend the state banquet tomorrow, which is organized by her brother to honor Emperor Naruhito of Japan. The Emperor is visiting the UK this week with his wife, Empress Masako.
