Prince Philip gives up driving after crash last month

The Duke of Edinburgh has ‘voluntarily’ surrendered his driving licence, Buckingham Palace has said.

Prince Philip, 97, was involved in a serious road accident last month while behind the wheel near the Sandringham Estate.

He was unhurt but was checked by a doctor.

A woman who was travelling in a Kia that collided with the Duke’s Land Rover Freelander suffered a broken wrist.

Prince Philip made the decision ‘after careful consideration’ following a crash last month involving another car with two passengers and a baby.

The 97 year old’s recent crash made headlines after reports of an ‘astonishing escape’ from his Range Rover – which had rolled across the road.

He caused further controversy after he was spotted less than 48-hours later driving without a seatbelt.

Norfolk Police confirmed they had spoken to the Duke after being made aware of photographs showing him driving without a seatbelt, saying ‘suitable words of advice have been given to the driver’.

Roy Warne, 75, who rescued the Queen’s husband from his car described him as a ‘very brave man’ and said the wreckage looked like it had caused ‘extraordinarily severe injuries’.
