  • Prince Philip

The Duke of Edinburgh has been involved in a vehicle crash while behind the wheel close to the Sandringham Estate.

Mr Warne said he wasn't sure where the Duke's security detail had been but added that police arrived on the scene in a different auto "very quickly", once he had pulled Philip out.

The BBC reported that Philip was driving a Range Rover and that the vehicle landed on its side after a collision.

One witness, Roy Warne, who helped the duke from the vehicle, told the Sun he overheard the royal tell police he had been "dazzled by the sun".

Onlookers told the BBC that they helped the duke out of his Land Rover and he was "conscious but very, very shocked and shaken". The female driver of the Kia suffered cuts while the female passenger sustained an arm injury, both requiring hospital treatment.

Despite his advancing years, Prince Philip, has always been "an incredibly active person and very keen on remaining physically active", he said.

Philip, who retired from all his public royal engagements in August 2017, has been staying in Sandringham as usual with the Queen for the last few weeks following their Christmas celebrations.

A palace spokeswoman later confirmed Philip was at the wheel and was checked by a doctor afterwards.

The Queen will be "very annoyed" with her husband, according to royal expert Ingrid Seward, and Prince Charles said recently he was "always worried" about his father's determination to keep driving well into his nineties.

"I saw the vehicle flip", he said, adding that he rushed to help free the driver before he "suddenly realized it was Prince Philip". "There was a baby in the back seat, screaming".

"He was obviously shaken, and then he went and asked if everyone else was all right", said Mr Warne.

He said that after seeing the crash, on the A149 near Sandringham: "I went to the other auto". On Friday, Norfolk county council, which coincidentally had been scheduled to discuss safety measures on the A149 where the collision took place, approved plans for the speed limit to be lowered from 60mph to 50mph and to implement an average speed monitoring system.

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said His Royal Highness was also injured; however, he was examined just in case.
