Recently, Philip was involved in a car crash near his and the Queen’s private residence in Sandringham. With god’s grace, he did not injure himself.
However, the passengers sitting in the other car, did have some injuries.
There was a woman who broke her wrist in that car crash. She has told British media that the Duke of Edinburgh should be prosecuted if he is found to be at fault. She also says he is being highly insensitive by continuing to drive without a seat-belt.
Emma Fairweather, who was the passenger, told ITV’s program that she was left upset after seeing all that.
“Of course accidents happen. But there is a need of a period of reflection on what could be done differently to prevent the same thing happening again”. In an earlier interview with ‘The Sun’, Ms Fairweather said: “Honestly, I feel I am lucky to be alive. Prince Philip is yet to apologise to me”.
“If you ask me, there is an absolute need to be a decision as to whether the Duke of Edinburgh, Philip and I are from the same walk of life or not”.
Police have not disclosed who was at fault for the crash.
Prince Philip’s Land Rover flipped over during the crash. But, he was unhurt. The other driver, a 28-year-old woman, suffered cuts to her knee. And, the nine-month-old baby in the vehicle was not injured. However, Ms Fairweather said if authorities decided that the Duke was able to drive, then she was ‘OKAY’ with him being on the road.

Ms Fairweather added: “I am very worried that the police had not come to me for a statement yet. The only support I’ve had is my very immediate family. In fact, you would be surprised to know that I did not receive a full medical check-up. The doctors only checked my wrist”.
“One of Queen Elizabeth’s ladies-in-waiting had left me a voicemail message. She said that the Queen wishes you well. And, this is the only contact I have had with the Palace”.
Buckingham Palace said last week that Prince Philip had exchanged well-wishes with the passengers in the other car.
