"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 Buckingham Palace spokesperson said.

Her husband, Tim Laurence, accompanied Anne to hospital and her two children, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, were also on the estate at the time.

"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 Buckingham Palace statement said.

The princess is expected to return home this week, but her upcoming engagements have been postponed and Anne will not fly to Canada as planned at the end of the week.

However, the official state visit of Japanese Emperor Naruhito and his wife, hosted by King Charles, will go ahead as planned, starting on Tuesday.

The princess is one of the most popular members of the Royal Family, according to polls, and is regularly credited as being the hardest working. She stepped in to take more duties in light of Charles's cancer diagnosis. 

Her love of horses is well-documented and she won a gold medal in the 1971 European Eventing Championship, while she competed at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games as a member of the British Equestrian team, becoming the first royal Olympian in the process.

"Her mantra for life is very much if you fall, get back up and try again," daughter Zara told a TV documentary to mark her mother's 70th birthday in 2020.
