Two days after meeting with accident, British Queen’s 97-yr-old husband is back to driving
London, Jan 21: It was just a few days ago that Prince Philip, the 97-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth, was involved in a road accident. Just two days after the incident, the nonagenarian was back behind the wheels, according to photographs revealed by the Daily Mail.
On Thursday, January 17, Philip's car crashed into another vehicle and overturned near the royal family's Sandringham Estate. The nonagenarian, who was driving the vehicle, escaped unhurt though he was reportedly shaken by the incident.
On Friday, January 18, the monarch herself was also driving her Range Rover on a public road without wearing the seatbelt, more than a mile from where her husband met with the accident. She was also reportedly seen driving on Saturday, January 19, as per images published by The Telegraph, and was seen wearing her seatbelt.
The Queen is the only person who can drive in Great Britain without carrying a driver's licence. The 92-year-old has been driving since she was 19, PEOPLE reported.
The vehicle into which Philip's car crashed on Thursday was being driven by a 28-year-old woman with a nine-month-old baby in the backseat. While she suffered cuts in her knees, another woman sitting in the passenger seat broke her wrist. The baby escaped unhurt, police reported.
