The Princess Royal, who is recovering from a chest infection, has cancelled a trip to Africa later this month on medical advice, said Buckingham Palace.

Anne was due to fly to Botswana and Mozambique, but her brother the Duke of York will go instead.

A Palace spokesman said: "The Princess Royal is still recovering from a bad chest infection. HRH's working programme for next week has therefore been scaled back, with a number of engagements cancelled."

Anne has been resting privately at home this week on doctors' orders. She was treated at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary on September 9 before being discharged and returning to Balmoral.
