Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth's Husband, is Reportedly Fine After a vehicle Accident

Prince Philip car crash

On Twitter, the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, offered a prayer for Philip and the "people who were in the vehicle involved in the traffic accident". A royal source said Thursday the prince has a license and follows all procedures required to keep it up to date.

It is unknown where Prince Philip was travelling to at the time.

Roy helped Philip out of his overturned Land Rover.

"I didn't see that much as I was more concerned the auto in front of me was braking to turn off and that there was glass and debris all over the road".

The Duke has made contact with the driver and passenger of the other auto and exchanged "well wishes" with them, Buckingham Palace said.

"He really loves driving and takes a great pleasure in it and were he not allowed to drive he would find that quite painful", she said.

After the crash, commenters were quick to weigh in on whether the prince should've been driving at all.

"It might be that the duke is about to be persuaded to give up the wheel". Both he and Queen Elizabeth II share a strong passion for driving.

The Duke of Edinburgh leaving the Queen's Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace, London on Wednesday December 19, 2018.

Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) figures out in November showed 110,790 people aged 90 or over still held driving licences.

She was the first member of the royal family to plead guilty to a criminal offence.

According to the legal encyclopedia, Halbury's Laws of England, members of the Royal Household can not be arrested in civil proceedings.

The Queen has been in the auto in the past while her husband was involved in accidents, including in June 1964, when 32-year-old machinist Henry Cooper was driving to the Rising Sun public house at Holyport, near Madienhead, in his '89 Ford Popular.

When motorists reach the age of 70 in Britain they are required to renew their licence, and must do so every three years thereafter.

King said vehicle insurers' risk profiles increased for over-75s, partly because drivers tended to be more frail and suffered more serious injuries.

When asked if Philip had ever passed a driving test, a royal spokesman made no comment.

The royal's crash comes after previous year saw him undergo hip replacement surgery in April, before falling in the bath and cracking a rib just six weeks later.

Philip also knows how to fly all types of aircraft but he hasn't flown a plane since August 1997.
