Buckingham Palace has confirmed that Princess Anne is currently receiving treatment in a hospital.

The Princess Royal, 73, was confirmed to have sustained injuries in an "incident" while at Gatcombe Park royal estate in Gloucestershire on Sunday night (June 23).

Further details have not been specified.

A statement issued by Buckingham Palace reads the following: "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 update continues by noting that King Charles III had also been informed of his sister's ill health: "[He] joins the whole Royal Family in sending his fondest love and well-wishes to The Princess for a speedy recovery."

Anne's injuries come amid a period of poor health for the royal family. Earlier this year, King Charles announced to the public that he had been diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer, and he's currently undergoing treatment.

Elsewhere, the Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, has also been taking time out of the public eye after she, too, was diagnosed with cancer.

While she has yet to undergo her official return to duty, Kate *did* appear at Trooping of the Colour earlier this month.

Fans were delighted to see the Princess of Wales involved in the festivities, wearing a regal dress and smiling with her children.

Posting an update on her health on social media, Kate told her followers, "I am making good progress, but as anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days."

"On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well. My treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months. On the days I feel well enough, it is a joy to engage with school life, spend personal time on the things that give me energy and positivity, as well as starting to do a little work from home," she added.
