Two days ago, Prince Phillip (97) built a car accident. Two days later, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II makes new news: he was surprised to drive without a belt.
Only two days after his car accident, Prince Philip filed a police complaint for unguarded driving. The newspapers had published photos on Saturday showing the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, 97, at the wheel.
A police spokeswoman said the photos were known to the authorities. "The driver was given appropriate advice," he explained. This is the usual procedure when the police becomes aware of such a crime.
Only two days ago, an accident
Prince Philip crashed a four-wheel drive SUV near Sandringham Castle in England's east on Thursday when he turned off a side lane on a main road. His Land Rover crashed to the driver's side and the windshield broke, but the Duke of Edinburgh could be pulled out of the car unharmed by the wrecks of hasty accidents. The driver of Kia, 28, was briefly treated at the hospital. His nine-month-old baby was unharmed.
The incident sparked a debate in the UK on the suitability of older people to drive. In the United Kingdom, the license is over 70 years old, but can be renewed with a simple self-assessment test. According to official sources, over 100,000 senior citizens over the age of 90 still have a driving license in the Kingdom.
The queen's husband is a passionate motorist. In 2016, he made a point to lead the US Presidential couple, Barack and Michelle Obama, together with the Queen at the Windsor Castle estate during their visit to the United Kingdom. (DPS)
