The husband of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, was involved in the afternoon in a car accident. The Buckingham Palace announced. The 97-Year-old had suffered in the accident with another vehicle near the country seat of Sandringham no injuries, it said.

police were on the spot. Whether Philip himself sat at the wheel, is unclear. The BBC reported that the Prince consort have driven a Range Rover. The car had landed after a collision on the side. An eye witness said, therefore, the 97-Year-old was very upset.

The British Royal couple will spend the time around the turn of the year, traditionally in Sandringham in the East England County of Norfolk. The Royals also celebrate Christmas and new year.

Prince Philip had to be adopted in 2017. He is since then, only rarely in Public. The attendance at the weddings of his grandchildren Harry and Princess Eugenie last year, he was, however, not to be missed.
