PRINCE PHILIP CRASH: The Queen will be 'absolutely livid'

The duke saw a doctor as a precaution who confirmed he was not hurt.

The Duke of Edinburgh had to visit the hospital and had a precautionary check-up on Friday morning following doctors orders.

"This confirmed his royal highness had no injuries of concern", she added, without specifying the extent of any minor injuries.

Helen Staines reportedly accused the Duke of Edinburgh of almost ploughing into her auto near the estate in Norfolk on a previous occasion.

The 97-year-old Duke of Edinburgh collided with a Kia at about 3pm, when he pulled out of a driveway onto the A149 in Babingley, Norfolk, just beside Sandringham.

Known as the Duke of Edinburgh in Britain, Philip is also well-known for his love for speed.

The 72-year-old from Norfolk told the paper: "The passenger from the other vehicle told me, "I always wanted to meet a royal - but not this way".

"I was blinded by the sun", the paper quoted him as saying.

The 97-year-old royal was uninjured, although those who were on-hand said there was blood at the scene after Philip overturned his Land Rover following a collision with a Kia driven by a 28-year-old woman with a 9-month-old baby in the backseat.

The Dutch King Willem-Alexander's Tesla Model X was first spotted in 2016 when he went to visit his mother at the hospital in Schiedam.


When authorities arrived to the scene at around 3 p.m. local time, the drivers were given breath tests following police policy and to check for signs of intoxication while driving.

Two people in the other auto were injured and taken to the hospital.

Images published on Saturday appeared to show Prince Philip, wearing dark glasses and no seatbelt, back behind the wheel of a new Freelander on the Queen's Sandringham estate.

Philip has largely retired from public life, but has seemed to be in generally good health in recent months.

Numerous eyewitnesses scrambled to help the royal get out of his vehicle safely.

"I saw the vehicle flip", Roy Warne, 75, told daily, adding that he rushed to help free the driver before he "suddenly realised it was Prince Philip".

While the duke was uninjured, he was left "shocked and shaken" by the accident.

"We are aware of the public interest in this case, however, as with any other investigation, it would be inappropriate to speculate on the causes of the collision until an investigation is carried out". Asking a person if they may be a danger to others on the road is one of the most hard conversations anyone will have, for losing a driver's licence can be seen as a blow to one's independence. While the Queen is not required to have a driving license, Prince Philip is.

Drivers in the United Kingdom aged 70 and above need to reapply for their license every three years, for which there is a mandatory eyesight test.
