The Duke of Edinburgh, 97 Prince Philip,involved in car accident close to the Sandringham Estate while driving in his car, which had a collision with another vehicle on the road.
The husband of Queen Elizabeth was driving a Range Rover and was pulling out of a driveway onto the A149, a main road, when the accident happened.
A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said the Duke “saw a doctor as a precaution and the doctor confirmed he was not injured”.
Norfolk Police said officers were called to the Sandringham Estate shortly before 3pm ‘following reports of a collision involving two cars’.
A spokesman added that police and ambulance crews attended and two people in one of the vehicles suffered minor injuries.
A palace spokeswoman confirmed the duke was driving when the accident happened. She added: ‘He saw a doctor as a precaution and the doctor confirmed he was not injured.’
Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth, has been staying at Sandringham Estate since Christmas, according to local media.
The Prince retired from official royal duties in August 2017, after completing 22,219 solo engagements since 1952.
A witness said they saw the duke being helped from the car in ‘shock’.
The spokeswoman would not comment on who Philip’s passenger was but it is likely the Duke was travelling with his close protection officer.
Two people in the second vehicle were treated for minor injuries.
He was ‘conscious’ but appeared to be visibly ‘shaken’, they told the BBC. Philip and the Queen have been staying at their Norfolk estate since Christmas.
The duke did not attend the Royal Family’s Christmas Day service last month. He is no stranger to the driving seat and was seen with very famous passengers in a Range Rover in 2016.
