Britain’s royal family’s oldest Prince Philip says that he was deeply sorry about injuries a woman suffered after he was involved in a car crash a week back.
Prince Philip wrote a letter to the injured Emma Fairweather. Ms. Fairweather broke her wrist when her car collided with the royals Land Rover.
The Prince signed the letter blue in ink, it reads —
“I would like you to know how very sorry I am for my part in the accident… I can only imagine that I failed to see the car coming, and I am very contrite about the consequences.
I was somewhat shaken after the accident, but I was greatly relieved that none of you were seriously injured.
I have since learned that you suffered a broken arm. I am deeply sorry about this injury.”
The crash left the Philip’s car toppled on the side of a busy main road near the royal country residence in Norfolk, eastern England. It was a lucky escape for Prince Philip to get away uninjured.
Emma Fairweather had earlier complained that the prince did not even issue an apology to her after the incident.
There is no legal age in Britain to stop driving but after the age of 70 people must renew their licence every three years. But after this incident there has been a growing debate if the elderly should give up driving.
