Prince Philip Licence

Prince Philip is handing over the keys to his Range Rover.

In case you missed it, Prince Philip, 97, who is the husband of Queen Elizabeth, was involved in an accident in January as he was pulling out the driveway of his royal estate.

Although he was not injured, the incident shook him up enough to make his realize that he needed to hand over his license and move over to the passengers seat. He’s turning over his transportation needs over to someone else.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace confirmed the news saying “After careful consideration, The Duke of Edinburgh has taken the decision to voluntarily surrender his driving license.”

Norfolk police also confirmed that the Duke voluntarily turned in his license to officers.

On 17 January 2019, 97-year-old Philip was involved in a car crash while driving his Land Rover Freelander, as he pulled out onto a main road near the Sandringham Estate. An official statement said he was uninjured. An eyewitness who came to the prince’s aid described having to wipe blood off his hands. Philip attended hospital the next morning as a precaution. The driver and a passenger of the other car were injured and taken to hospital.
