United Kingdom police speak to Prince Philip about not wearing seatbelt

United Kingdom police speak to Prince Philip about not wearing seatbelt

But he remarkably walked away without any injuries, while the two women suffered minor injuries and the nine-month-old baby escaped unscathed.

"It has been such a traumatic and painful time and I would have expected more of the Royal Family", Emma Fairweather, a passenger in the Kia which collided with the Prince's Land Rover, told the Sunday Mirror. "That's not an apology or even a well-wish." she added.

Fairweather claims she has heard nothing from the palace, despite officials previously saying that contact had been made. The baby was uninjured.

The Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a road traffic accident with another vehicle this afternoon. "I kept thinking he was going to stop but he didn't ..."

"It has been such a traumatic and painful time and I would have expected more of the Royal Family".

Her 75-year-old husband Roy helped the stricken duke out of his auto, and he told The Sun Philip was overheard telling police he had been "dazzled by the sun".

"What would it have taken for him and the Queen to send me a card and a bunch of flowers?"

British media on Saturday published a photograph showing the 97-year-old royal driving a new Land Rover near the royal residence at Sandringham in eastern England.

Philip's questionable driving practices have inspired a wide range of colorful Twitter commentary, including cheeky posts about royal meet and greets, as well as the prince's eye-popping age.

Police have spoken to the Duke of Edinburgh after the photos emerged.

"This is in line with our standard response when being made aware of such images showing this type of offense", a police spokeswoman said.

Both were treated for cuts on the knee as well as broken wrist, respectively.

Philip, who formally retired from public life in 2017, has been seen behind the wheels on numerous occasions over the decade.

He passed a vision test administered Saturday as part of the investigation into the accident.

Ms Fairweather said Prince Philip received most of the attention from drivers who stopped at the scene since his auto was on its side and she feared she would be left until passerby Victoria Warne, 72, got her out and explained who the other driver was.

A source said on the same day: 'The duke's routine in the coming days will continue as normal'.

There was a 28-year-old woman driving the other vehicle along with her 45-year-old passenger and a baby in the back.

"As we approached I could make out that it was an elderly driver".
