    • will require months of rehabilitation 
    • 3 Weeks in hospital

Let me know if I am missing any.


  1. Where do we send mail for Zara? I wanted to send her a letter with my sympathies. However I don't know where to send it, Do we send it to Buckingham Palace.

  2. Yes, Buckingham Palace is good. If ever want to send a letter to the extended royal family, who don't have their own offices, that is the best place to send it.

    I would however direct a letter to Zara specifically to her mum, Princess Anne's office:

    Zara and Mike Tindall
    Princess Anne's Office
    Buckingham Palace
