Prince Philip, Driving Without Seatbelt After Crash, Gets Police ‘Advice’

Prince Philip’s previous Land Rover flipped after hitting a Kia minivan on Thursday afternoon on A149, which runs along the Norfolk coast. Ms. Fairweather and a 9-month-old boy were passengers in the minivan driven by another woman, who also suffered injuries. The boy was unharmed in the crash.

“I’m lucky to be alive and he hasn’t even said sorry,” Ms. Fairweather was quoted as saying of Prince Philip in the interview.

Buckingham Palace has said that “a full message of support was sent to both the driver and the passenger.” But Ms. Fairweather argued that the message she had received on Friday was not supportive and did not come from a royal, but from a police family liaison officer instead.

“He said, ‘The queen and the duke of Edinburgh would like to be remembered to you,’” she told The Mirror. “That’s not an apology or even a well-wish.”

Ms. Fairweather, photographed with her arm in a sling, also disputed the duke’s reported claim that he had steered off the road because the sun had momentarily blinded him.
