(AP) Princess Beatrix, the former Dutch queen, has undergone surgery after falling and breaking a cheekbone, the Royal House announced Sunday.

Beatrix, 75, was operated on Sunday morning after the fall and will remain hospitalized for a few days.

After 33 years on the throne, Beatrix was replaced as Dutch monarch on April 30 this year by her eldest son Willem-Alexander.

Following her abdication, she was named Princess Beatrix and continues to perform public duties.
