The husband of Elizabeth II, 97 years old, was at the wheel of the vehicle when the accident occurred on a road in eastern England on Thursday.
“shocked” but unscathed. Prince Philip was the victim of a road accident on Thursday, 17 January, near the royal estate of Sandringham, Norfolk. “The Duke of Edinburgh was involved (…) with another vehicle this afternoon,” said Buckingham Palace.
The husband of Queen Elizabeth II, aged 97 years, was driving his Land Rover when the accident occurred. Witnesses told the BBC that they had helped him out of the vehicle, which had lain on the flank. Prince Philip was conscious, but “very, very shocked and shaken.”
In the evening, the Norfolk County police indicated that the blood alcohol test results were negative. The driver of the other vehicle involved, a Kia, suffers from cuts while her passenger is injured “on the arm”, added the police. Both women received care in a local hospital before they could return home.
The question that arises to let a person of this age lead, is that the prince cannot afford to pay a personal driver?
