The Queen fails to belt-up less than two weeks after Prince Philip car smash

Prince Philip might be banished to the passenger seat these days, but we say the Queen should still remember to clunk, click every trip.

She failed to belt up as she was driven back to her Sandringham Estate in Norfolk from church yesterday.

On Saturday, Prince Philip looked grumpy, scowling in the passenger seat of his Land Rover Freelander as he was driven home from lunch at a shooting lodge.

The Sunday Mirror today revealed how Philip, 97, wrote to Emma Fairweather, 46, the mum injured in a collision with his Land Rover on January 17, wishing her a “speedy recovery”.

Emma, has instructed solicitors to pursue a compensation claim, was left in crippling pain after the crash and has been signed off work for two months.

The Kia was driven by her friend Ellie Townsend, 28, and Ellie’s nine-month-old son was also in the car.

“I would like you to know how very sorry I am for my part in the accident at the Babingley cross-roads," the letter read.

“I have been across that crossing any number of times and I know very well the amount of traffic that uses that main road.

"It was a bright sunny day and at about three in the afternoon, the sun was low over the Wash.

“In other words, the sun was shining low over the main road. In normal conditions I would have no difficulty in seeing traffic coming from the Dersingham direction, but I can only imagine that I failed to see the car coming, and I am very contrite about the consequences.

“I was somewhat shaken after the accident, but I was greatly relieved that none of you were seriously injured.

 “As a crowd was beginning to gather, I was advised to return to Sandringham House by a local Police Officer. I have since learned that you suffered a broken arm. I am deeply sorry about this injury.

“I wish you a speedy recovery from a very distressing experience.”
