97 Year Old Prince Philip Surrenders License After Crashing Land Rover

Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has surrendered his driver’s license roughly three weeks after being involved in a crash.

The 97-year-old may not drive very often but he left two women injured when he crashed the Land Rover he was driving on January 17. Prosecutors are still deciding whether or not to charge the Prince over the crash but have said that they will take into consideration his decision to voluntarily surrender his license.

The January 17 crash happened near the Sandringham estate owned by the royal family in eastern England. Philip smashed into another vehicle, injuring the two women on board, but thankfully not hurting a 9-month-old baby that was also inside. Philip’s Land Rover rolled and he had to be helped out. He escaped uninjured.

Incredibly, Philip was snapped just two weeks later while back behind the wheel without his seatbelt on. Police spoke to him after these images became public.

Prince Philip reached out to the two women he injured by writing them individual letters. In one of the letters, Philip asserted that he was dazzled by the sun. He also wrote that “I can only imagine that I failed to see the car coming, and I am very contrite about the consequences,” – addressed to Emma Fairweather whose wrist was broken in the crash.

    “Voluntarily”

    Okay, we all know he had to do this for the image of the crown.

    “Prosecutors are still deciding whether or not to charge the Prince over the crash”

    I bet they would’ve deliberated still, even after killing them.

      yep I think all people above 75 should be getting yearly checkups to see if they’re still healthy and aware enough to drive

      • Roger Ramjet

        Why wait until 75?

  • ZYGIUS

    How many year prosecutors will deside?
