Prince Philip 'shocked and shaken' but uninjured after vehicle overturns in crash

Britain's Prince Philip, 97, escapes unhurt after road crash near royal estate

BBC news is reporting that he was unhurt, although two people in the auto he hit sustained minor injuries.

A witness helped pull the Duke of Edinburgh from the vehicle, saying he was shocked and shaken, but unhurt.

Sky's royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills explained: "From what I understand, Prince Philip has been seen by a doctor since that accident took place". He was thankfully not injured, the Palace said in a statement.

A source said at the time: "The Duke is not a fan of showering and prefers to bathe". Prince Philip himself was driving the Range Rover when it collided with another vehicle. The two women were hospitalised with minor injuries and were discharged the same day.

The Duke of Edinburgh told the police had he was "dazzled by the sun" after being rescued from his overturned Land Rover on Thursday.

It had previously been reported the duke had been driving a Range Rover.

Philip had a passenger in his vehicle, but the palace did not identify the person.

The duke, who retired from public duties in the summer of 2017 and last April had a hip replacement operation, is known to remain active.

Famous for verbal gaffes but generally regarded with wry affection by Britons, Philip married Elizabeth in 1947 and has been by his wife's side throughout her long reign.
