Prince Phillip Has Decided to Stop Driving After Recent Car Crash

Prince Phillip Has Decided to Stop Driving After Recent Car Crash

"After careful consideration, the Duke of Edinburgh has taken the decision to voluntarily surrender his driving license", the palace said in a statement.

Police in the eastern part of England where the accident happened outside a royal residence said they had passed Philip's file to prosecutors to determine whether anyone should be charged.

The UK's Prince Philip, 97, has made a decision to "voluntarily surrender" his driving licence following a crash last month, Buckingham Palace announced on Saturday.

Philip was behind the wheel of a Land Rover near the royal family's Sandringham estate in eastern England when he smashed into another auto on January 17.

"Dear Mrs. Fairweather", Philip began the note, which Emma Fairweather, 46, provided to the Sunday Mirror.

The Kia driver, a 28-year-old woman, received knee injuries while her 45-year-old passenger suffered a broken wrist. The Prince, who was driving a Land Rover, collided with a Kia carrying two women and a baby boy.

The sun was blamed for hindering his vision and he wrote he was "very contrite about the consequences" of the collision.

"I would like you to know how very sorry I am for my part in the accident at the Babingley cross-roads", he wrote, later explaining, "In normal conditions I would have no difficulty in seeing traffic coming from the Dershingham direction, but I can only imagine that I failed to see the vehicle coming, and I am very contrite about the consequences".

Francia consideró " inaceptable " esa reunión y le avisó de que no interfiriera con la política del país. En enero, el ministro del Interior italiano Matteo Salvini dijo que Macron era un " presidente pésimo".

The letter is signed: "Yours sincerely Philip".

Prince Philip's Range Rover rolled but Buckingham Palace says the 97-year-old was uninjured.

Fairweather had previously complained that while the Queen, who had no involvement in the accident, had been in contact through a lady-in-waiting, she had not had any direct communication with the Duke.

Police said the results "provided negative readings" for both drivers.

But the lawyer, dubbed Mr Loophole, said the duke could avoid prosecution by surrendering his licence.

Wearing tinted glasses, he was photographed at the wheel of a replacement Land Rover while not wearing a seatbelt in the ensuing days.

He was given "suitable words of advice" according to Norfolk Police.
