Queen intervenes with touching message for victim after Duke's vehicle crash

Posted January 21, 2019

Witnesses at the scene said to the publication the vehicle flipped over and Philip was clearly nervous and shocked.

Buckingham Palace said "well-wishes" were exchanged Friday with those injured in the other auto.

According to Britain's Press Association, the photographs showed Philip wearing dark glasses and no seat belt near Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, eastern England.

"I still love him and the Queen", she said.

Ms Fairweather told the newspaper at the time that she had received a phone call from police but had heard nothing from the royals or their household.

However, there has still been no message from the Duke of Edinburgh, and Fairweather remarked that it was nice for The Queen to reach out. "There was a little bit of blood and one of the royal entourage gave me a wipe to wipe my hands", Warne said.

Prince Philip, who holds his own driving licence, reportedly described himself as a "fool" after the crash and that he was "dazzled" by the sun.

She said the duke - who was taken to hospital but was found to have "no injuries of concern" after his check-up on Friday morning - asked about the welfare of the people involved in the crash.

Her 75-year-old husband Roy helped the stricken duke out of his auto, and he told The Sun Philip was overheard telling police he had been "dazzled by the sun".

She added, "Receiving a message from someone else's partner who wasn't involved in the accident is confusing".

"The passenger from the other auto told me, "I always wanted to meet a royal - but not in this way", the 72-year-old told the Sun.

"A man opened the door and I screamed that there was a baby in the back that needed to get out first", she said.
