Lady Louise Windsor breaks arm in riding accident

Thursday April 12, 2012

Prince Edward's daughter Lady Louise has been released from hospital with a cast on her left arm after breaking it in a riding accident.

The Queen's grandaughter fell from her horse on Thursday morning while she was riding in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

She is being looked after at the family home in Bagshot Park by her mother the Countess of Wessex, who cancelled a scheduled visit to a cancer hospital to be with her daughter.

Edward went ahead with the engagement, visiting the Christie in Withington, after learning his daughter hadn't been seriously injured.

A Buckingham Palace representative said on Thursday: "Lady Louise broke her left arm after falling from her pony while riding at Windsor this morning.

"She has been treated by doctors and is now resting at home."
