Prince Philip involved in a car crash escaped unhurt

Queen Elizabeth’s 97-year-old husband Prince Philip escaped uninjured from a car crash while driving on Thursday near the Sandringham estate in Eastern England.

Police said two people were in the car that collided with that of the prince were taken to the hospital for minor injuries and later discharged.

The pictures from the scene showed a Land Rover overturned on the road. The accident occurred when Philip was pulling out of a driveway onto a main road.

A palace spokeswoman confirmed that Prince Philip was at the wheel and was later checked by a doctor at the private residence owned by the queen in Sandringham.

Prince Philip married Queen Elizabeth in 1947 and has been by his wife’s side throughout her reign. He retired from official solo duties in 2017. However he still makes public appearances alongside the Queen and other members of the royal family at events and church services.

Royal historians hope that this accident doesn’t end Philip’s driving days, as he loves driving and takes a great pleasure in it.

There is no legal age in Britain to stop driving but after the age of 70 people must renew their licence every three years.

The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip drove the former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle to lunch during their state visit to the UK in 2016.
