Prince Philip tells vehicle crash victim he is 'deeply sorry'

Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth, was seen driving just two days after the accident.

The Duke blamed low-shining sun for the accident, as it meant he was unable to see the Kia coming around the corner.

"I would like you to know how very sorry I am for my part in the accident", Philip wrote in the letter, which was obtained by the UK's Sunday Mirror newspaper.

"I was somewhat shaken after the accident, but I was greatly relieved that none of you were seriously injured", he wrote. She suffered a broken arm after her vehicle and his collided on January 17 close to the Sandringham Estate, about 115 miles northeast of London. "I am deeply sorry about this injury", he said.

Her Majesty was also spotted on this weekend's outing at the Lunch Shooting Lodge on her estate.


Britain's Prince Philip has apologized to a woman who was injured when the auto she was riding in collided with a Land Rover that he was driving.

Prince Philip has sent an apology letter to United Kingdom mum Emma Fairweather after their vehicle crash.

Philip, 97, wished Emma Fairweather, 46, a speedy recovery in the letter, which she provided to the Mirror.

"It is a hard letter to write - to know what would be the right thing to say without making me more upset", she told the newspaper. "I was pleasantly surprised because of the personalized nature", she told the outlet.

His Land Rover Freelander collided with a Kia driven by Ms Fairweather's friend after he pulled out of a driveway.


The mom-of-two was in a Kia with her friend and her friend's 9-month-old boy when they violently collided with the royal's auto.

Following the auto crash, Fairweather spoke to the Sunday Mirror and told the publication that she was "upset" that the Duke of Edinburgh had not apologized to her as of two days later.

Norfolk's former roads policing chief Chris Spinks said officers would treat the Duke "like any other driver".

His vehicle then collided with the auto on a road close to the Royals' Sandringham private residence in Norfolk.
