The Queen and Prince Philip have been staying at the estate in Norfolk since Christmas when The Queen attended church services without her husband. Prince Philip retired from public life in 2017 but he has appeared in public alongside the Queen and other members of the royal family at events and church services. Commenting the actual incident, royal biographer Hugo Vickers told media: “Any kind of car accident at the age of 97 is likely to produce shock.” Prince Philip still drives both cars and carriages, one of his longtime passions. The Queen and the duke will return from their country home at the beginning of February.
