Season 2 of Ladies of London is off to a bumpy start, and no other cast member has had to make more of an adjustment than Annabelle Neilson, who is still recovering from her horse racing accident that occurred at the end of season 1. Though she is on the road to recovery, the aches and pains from her injuries still plague her today.
The Inquisitr reported that Neilson was thrown from her horse at a full gallop (about 45 mph) and broke bones in her pelvis and sacrum, but in true Annabelle fashion, she is determined to ride in next year’s race.

TVDeets says that Neilson is especially grateful to her family, including her sister Millie, who became her nurse during her recovery, and Julie Montagu, who regularly popped in to visit during her recovery.
“The accident was hard and it’s been a gradual recovery for me. I am getting better but I still have quite nasty pains in the right side down from my spine to my toes. Look, the best way for me to put it is I’m alive and I’m very grateful I didn’t break my neck.”
Neilson also recalls that it has been through trauma that she was first encouraged to write stories, which led to her series for children, the Me, Me, Me series. It is especially challenging for her, as she is dyslexic.
“I always seem to have ideas when I go through some trauma, but I’m very dyslexic, so it is a massive deal for me to have the first of the Me, Me, Me series out.

On yesterday’s episode, we got to see a softer side of Annabelle as she relates to Julie Montagu, according to the Inquisitr. She comforted her at the New Year’s Eve party after Montagu was slighted by Caroline Stanbury. Neilson is demonstrated that she is loyal to those who stick by her.
