    Yes and because he was in a Land Rover, he was more likely to come out of it relatively OK. I am amazed that the Kia occupants weren't more badly hurt.

    All the more reason to NOT get a new car delivered asap to him. Seems ridiculous that at his age he even has access to car keys. I'm glad the two ladies and the baby are all relatively fine, it could have been much worse than it was, thankfully.

    All the more reason to be guarded heavily..What he is doing is dangerous.It is not a vision thing,its reflexes..even if the sun dazzled him he was not able to manage the car like a younger driver could.

    He can practise in his new car now although hopefully the protection officers will be driving it.

    Now I want a Land Rover. Even if you drive it semi-dead, you come out alive if it's flipped by another car in a collision. Impressive.

    This is more than likely not a standard model, however. It'll be armoured and reinforced.

    Yeah one of the articles said it was armoured etc...
    There was an old article on a Range Rover that they sold & it had details of the upgrades.

    Land Rover has one of the most awesome commercials ever, doing 99 turns on a mountain and going up 999 steps in China.

    I'm lucky to be alive': Mother-of-two, 45, who broke her wrist in Sandringham car crash says Prince Philip has NOT apologised - as he's warned by police after getting back behind the wheel without a seatbelt


    • Emma Fairweather, 46, was a passenger in Kia involved in the crash on Thursday
    • She has revealed that Prince Philip has not apologised after the horrific crash
    • Ms Fairweather said that she 'couldn't stop screaming' and also broke her wrist
    • Prince Philip has had a new car delivered and was seen driving without a seatbelt
    • Do you know the driver of the Kia? Email zoie.o'brien@mailonline.co.uk or tips@dailymail.com or WhatsApp 07990130252

    PUBLISHED: 22:44, 19 January 2019 | UPDATED: 08:56, 20 January 2019


    A mother-of-two who broke her wrist after being involved in a car crash with Prince Philip has revealed how the Duke of Edinburgh has yet to apologise to her as he is pictured back behind the wheel.
    Emma Fairweather, 46, was a passenger in the Kia involved in the collision and described how she 'couldn't stop screaming' when it happened near the Sandringham estate in Norfolk last Thursday.
    The upset Royals supporter, Ms Fairweather, said she was told she would hear from the Palace after the crash, but was only delivered a nonsensical message from police which said: 'The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh would like to be remembered to you.'
    Meanwhile, Prince Philip was pictured driving a new Land Rover just 48 hours after the dramatic crash.
    Images published on Saturday show him wearing dark glasses with no seatbelt in a new Freelander on the Queen's Sandringham estate.
    Police have spoken to the Duke of Edinburgh after the photos emerged.
    A Norfolk Constabulary spokeswoman said the force was aware of the photographs and that 'suitable words of advice have been given to the driver.

    Prince Philip has been spotted behind the wheel of his brand new Land Rover today just two days after flipping his car in a horror crash

    The Duke of Edinburgh, 97, could be seen driving the car on his own without a seatbelt into the main entrance gate to the Sandringham estate on Saturday afternoon

    The Duke of Edinburgh reportedly said 'I'm such a fool' after being pulled from his wrecked Freelander on Thursday after it flipped on its side following a collision with a Kia close to Sandringham.
    The Palace said contact has been made privately and 'well wishes' have been exchanged but the crash passenger said this was not true.
    Ms Fairweather from Kings Lynn in Norfolk said that she is 'lucky to be alive' and initially had no idea it was the Prince in the other car.
    The Kia Ms Fairweather was travelling in was being driven by her 28-year-old friend whose nine-month-old baby was also in the car.

    Prince Philip crashed with a Kia carrying two women and a baby on Thursday afternoon

    At the time of the crash her first concern, she added, was to scream for someone to get the child out of the back.
    She told the Sunday Mirror: 'We could see the Land Rover about 150 yards away from us at the junction, then it started to move.
    'The speed limit was 60mph but my friend was doing no more than 50mph. I kept thinking he (the Prince) was going to stop, but he didn't.
    'It all went into slow motion as I watched the other car.
    'As we approached I could make out that it was an elderly driver. My friend was braking and seemed so in control but I was terrified.
    'It must have been seconds but it felt like half a lifetime. I had no idea at the time that it was Prince Philip - I was just thinking of the baby. I don't think I realised that my side of the car had taken most of the impact.'
    Ms Fairweather said Prince Philip received most of the attention from drivers who stopped at the scene since his car was on its side and she feared she would be left until passerby Victoria Warne, 72, got her out and explained who the other driver was.
    'The lady came over and said 'you do know who that is don't you' I thought it was just an elderly gentleman but she said 'It's Prince Philip'.'
    Witnesses said Prince Philip was whisked away ten minutes later.
    Ms Fairweather has not heard from the Queen or her husband, she said.
    She added: 'I know the Queen is a busy lady but I was really excited at the idea that she might phone me.
    'Instead I got a call from a police family liaison officer.
    'The message he passed on didn't even make sense. He said 'The Queen and Prince Philip would like to be remembered to you'.

    A driver claims Prince Philip almost crashed into her as near Sandringham estate before his shocking crash on Thursday (pictured)

    'I love the Royals but I've been ignored and rejected and I'm in a lot of pain.
    'It would mean the world to me if Prince Philip said sorry but I have no idea if he's sorry at all.
    'What would it have taken for him and the Queen to send me a card and a bunch of flowers?'
    The crash came for the 46-year-old whose birthday is on Sunday after a string of unfortunate life changes including losing her job and her marriage.
    She had texted her mother jokingly hours before the crash saying: 'It's almost been a week and nothing bad has happened.'
    It was claimed the Duke of Edinburgh may have been 'dazzled' by the sun but Ms Fairweather said it was overcast and 'grey' on Thursday afternoon as she and her friend drove home from Hunstanton beach.

    According to the Telegraph, Ms Fairweather's friends have claimed that she and the 28-year-old female Kia driver had been 'advised' by police not to talk about the collision.
    The two women inside the Kia were hurt but the nine-month-old baby boy was unharmed, police said.
    The Duke passed a police eyesight test on Saturday, a source confirmed.
    On Friday, the Queen's transport manager Alex Garty was seen at Sandringham as a new Freelander was delivered to the Royal residence.
    A Palace spokeswoman said on Friday that Prince Philip had exchanged 'well-wishes' with the injured women and appeared to have no lasting problems following the collision.
    A source said on the same day: 'The Duke's routine in the coming days will continue as normal.'
    Retired NHS worker Victoria Warne told The Sun she spoke to the Duke as she looked after the injured occupants of the Kia.
    The 72-year-old from Norfolk said: 'The passenger from the other car told me, 'I always wanted to meet a Royal - but not this way'.
    She said the Duke - who 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.
    'I told him the baby was fine - but we thought the passenger had broken her arm,' she said.
    'He looked so worried and told me, 'I'm such a fool'.'

    The Queen was spotted driving her Range Rover without a seatbelt a day after Prince Philip's crash, little more than a mile from the scene of her husband's accident

    Norfolk Police said two women - the 28-year-old Kia driver who suffered cuts to her knee and a 45-year-old passenger who broke a wrist - were treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn that day and discharged.
    The force is currently investigating the crash, and it said 'any appropriate action' will be taken if necessary.
    Nick Freeman, the lawyer dubbed Mr Loophole, said the Duke could be prosecuted for driving without due care and attention if he was deemed to have made a mistake.
    But he added: 'If the sun was so low and right in your eyes, sometimes it's impossible to see, and that may well have been the case, and that would afford him a defence.'
    The Duke, who retired from public duties in 2017 but remains active, could also avoid prosecution by surrendering his licence, according to the lawyer known for representing celebrity clients like David Beckham.
    Norfolk Constabulary said in a statement on Friday: 'As is standard procedure with injury collisions, the incident will be investigated and any appropriate action taken.
    'We are aware of the public interest in this case, however, as with any other investigation it would be inappropriate to speculate on the causes of the collision until an investigation is carried out.'

    A motorist who swerved around the wreckage (aftermath of crash pictured) said the Duke was 'hanging from his seat' and saying 'my leg is trapped'. Four rescuers had to free him from his upturned Land Rover

    Witnesses yesterday revealed the 97-year-old was shaking and pleading 'get me out' after his Land Rover crashed (aftermath pictured) while he was alone and without a protection officer

    Mrs Warne's 75-year-old husband, Roy, helped the stricken Duke out of his car.
    He told The Sun that Philip, who was left very shocked by the accident, asked if everybody was all right and was overheard telling police he had been 'dazzled by the sun'.
    Prince Philip was examined at hospital on doctor's advice, but a check-up found no injuries of concern, a Palace spokeswoman has said.
    The crash happened as Philip's Freelander pulled out of a side road on to a stretch of the A149 which was earmarked by the local authority for possible safety measures.
    The Duke appeared to be travelling without a police protection officer - individuals who guard all senior members of the Royal Family when at public and private events.
    At a meeting, coincidentally scheduled for Friday, Norfolk County Council approved plans to lower the speed limit from 60mph to 50mph, backed by speed cameras.
    Buckingham Palace did not immediately comment on the images of Prince Philip driving.
