Princess Anne has reportedly suffered memory loss after sustaining head injuries following a horse-related incident over the weekend.

The Princess Royal, 73, spent a second night in the hospital on Monday as doctors performed tests on her after it emerged that she had suffered a concussion.

Her memory loss, which is a direct result of the incident, is thought to be temporary, the Telegraph reports.

Princess Anne’s husband, Sir Timothy Laurence, was asked about his wife’s health as he was leaving the hospital this morning.

“She’s fine. Slow but sure,” he told reporters outside the hospital in a video shared on X.

Laurence had also brought Anne a few snacks from home.

The beloved royal — and King Charles’ only sister — is said to have been injured by a horse during a stroll on the grounds of her Gatcombe Park estate Sunday evening.

Princess Anne’s husband, Sir Timothy Laurence, as well as her daughter Zara Tindall and son Peter Phillips, were all on the estate at the time of the incident.

Other senior members of the royal family were notified of Anne’s injuries on Sunday night.

Anne — the late Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip’s only daughter — has canceled all of her official duties slated for this week, including a State Visit, and a trip to Canada.

“On doctors’ advice, Her Royal Highness’s engagements for the week ahead will be postponed. Her Royal Highness sends her apologies to any who may be inconvenienced or disappointed as a result,” her spokesperson said.

Former royal butler Grant Harrold has since told The Post exclusively that Anne could be sitting out of royal duties for weeks, adding that her absence will have a “big impact on her.”

It’s no secret that the Princess is an experienced and accomplished rider — having won the individual European Three-Day Event at Burghley in 1971.

It’s not the first time Anne has experienced memory loss as a result of a horse-related incident.

At the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal — at which she represented Great Britain — the then-26-year-old suffered a bad jump that prompted her to fall.

She later described her memory as “almost non-existent for that day.”

Earlier this month, the Princess Royal rode on horseback during the King’s Trooping the Colour ceremony.

However, at one point during the procession, the royal was close to losing control of her horse.

Anne attempted to maintain her composure as her horse began acting unruly while she rode next to two royal guards who were also on horseback.
