You have to take your princess to the ER and get a cast for her wrist ASAP,

and ask the doctor, but her wrist must be inmovalized.-

That is good ( the plaster) it should take 6 tops weeks, but do ask I might be wrong.

Keep me posted please I have a 10 old princess myself.-

At her age I fractured my own wrist and was in a plaster cast also. It only took 6 to 8 weeks to have the cast removed as X rays showed it had healed and I've never had any reoccurring problems from it now at age 42.
I hope this eases your mind but she will have a much smaller wrist/arm when the cast is removed and this is normal. She will need to be careful for many weeks afterward but will most likely be fine.
