Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip recently met with a car crash near the Sandringham Estate on Thursday afternoon and escaped unhurt. Reports read that his Land Rover crashed into a Kia, which was carrying a 28-year-old mother and her 9-month old son, along with another 45-year-old woman. As per the Norfolk police, the two women suffered injuries due to the mishap and needed hospital treatment. Reportedly, the incident also left the Duke ‘shocked and shaken’.
According to the reports, an eye-witness named Victoria Warne stopped at the scene with her husband Roy to free the Duke from the wreckage. “The prince steadied himself for ten minutes after the crash then started worrying about the others. He walked slowly down the path towards the crashed car without his protection officers and said, ‘Is everyone all right?’,” told Warne to The Sun. “I wasn’t going to lie to him, so I said, ‘Not really’. I told him the baby was fine - but we thought the passenger had broken her arm. He looked so worried and told me, ‘I’m such a fool’.”
It’s assumed that Philip could now be charged for driving without due care and attention. However, celebrity lawyer Nick Freeman stated that Philip could avoid the court by just surrendering his driving license.
