The British Queen’s husband Prince Philip has been involved in a car crash near to the Sandringham Estate when he was exiting the premises onto the A149.
The Duke of Edinburgh was involved in this road traffic accident with another oncoming vehicle this afternoon. “The Duke was not injured.”
An eyewitness said the Duke of Edinburgh was “very shocked and shaken” when he was helped from his upturned Range Rover. He saw a doctor as a precaution and the doctor confirmed he was okay.
Police said that the Duke, 97, was driving the car but was not injured in the two car collision. The royal car and one other vehicle were towed away from the scene by recovery truck.
The Duke has been examined by a doctor at Sandringham, where he has been staying with the Queen over the extended Christmas period.
The Archbishop of York shared a message of support for the Duke of Edinburgh following the car accident.
Almighty God, the Fountain of all Goodness, we humbly bless Philip Duke of Edinburgh with thy Holy Spirit, prosper him with all happiness; and bring him to thine everlasting kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
