Queen Elizabeth is definitely not impressed. And we can be sure that last week’s crash didn’t come as a surprise to the Queen of England.
As it turns out, Queen Elizabeth has had plenty of experience in the car with the Duke of Edinburgh, Philip during their 71-year-old marriage.
Previously speaking to the author, Betty Stew, in a rare letter that was recently auctioned, Her Majesty wrote: “Philip enjoys driving and does it quite fast. He has his own tiny M.G. which he is very proud of. In fact, he has taken me about in it, once up to London”.
“I must admit, it was great fun. Only it was like sitting on the road, and the wheels are almost as high as one’s head”.
Prince Philip has a unique way of relating to the things, specially when it comes to driving.

On July 9, 1947, Elizabeth (who was still Princess Elizabeth at the time), announced to the world that she was engaged to Philip Mountbatten. Following royal tradition, the couple released an official engagement portrait to commemorate the special day. 😍 😍 #july9 #july #1947 #elizabeth #engagement #royaluk #royal #tradition #couplegoals 😬#theroyaluk For more visit www.theroyaluk.com🤗🤗
The Duke of Edinburgh, Philip is known for his notorious driving. But, there is one more thing many people are not aware of. It’s about often cutting one-liners. It has also been reported that he has previously said “if you don’t like it, you can get out”. Apparently, it was in reference to his speedy driving.

And so, that’s probably why the 97-year-old retired royal is back on the roads of Great Britain. That too, presumably against the request of his family and most importantly, his wife, Queen Elizabeth. According to some reports, American royal commentator, Loni Love, said that there is a serious reason behind Prince Philip not giving up driving.
He might be refusing to give up driving because he wants to hide where he goes. Not only this, but royal author, Ingrid Seward, also noted that the Duke of Edinburgh will listen to his families wishes “but whether he will take any action, I don’t know”.
