Prince Philip, 97, was not injured in the accident, which happened close to the Queen's Sandringham estate in Norfolk on Thursday (Friday NZT).

While reports claimed the Duke's Range Rover had flipped on its side after the collision, it is also said he was able to walk away unscathed.

Two women in the other auto were hurt-the passenger had a broken wrist and the driver had cuts on her knee-but a baby in the vehicle was unharmed, The New York Times reports.

The duke has also made contact with the driver and passenger of the other vehicle, who were injured, and "best wishes" have been exchanged.

The Duke of Edinburgh is recovering after his vehicle overturned in a collision near the Queen's Sandringham estate on Thursday. Local police attended the scene.

Philip, 97, was driving a Land Rover when the accident involving a Kia happened near the Estate.

A first responder at the scene said the Duke of Edinburgh cried out "my legs" as he was pulled from the wreckage.

Following the collision, Philip saw a doctor at the Queen's Sandringham Estate, where he and the monarch are staying.

Earlier today, a delivery truck was spotted dropping off Philip's brand new replacement Land Rover Freelander.

Kim Jong-un warns of change in direction on denuclearisation
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and senior North Korean officials after the North cancelled it at the last minute in November. There was no immediate comment from the White House and asked for a reaction, a spokesperson for the U.S.

However, tonight's statement reveals that Prince Philip was hurt, but these injuries are not concerning. The female driver, 28, was in the vehicle alongside a 45-year-old woman and a nine-month-old boy who were treated in hospital.

He and the Queen, 92, have been on an extended Christmas holiday at Sandringham, one of her favoured rural homes.

There is no suggestion speeding was involved in this incident but eyewitness Roy Warne, 75, said the Landrover "came across the A149 like a somersault".

Philip, known for his forthright manner and off-colour jokes, formally retired from public life in 2017.

Both drivers were given breath tests "per department policy", which they both passed.

Norfolk Police said they were following standard procedure where a road traffic collision resulted in injuries.

Warne added, "He was obviously shaken and then he went and asked if everyone else [in the other car] was alright".

There is no upper age limit for driving in Britain, although drivers 70 and over are required to renew their licenses every three years and notify authorities if they have suffered from ailments like strokes, epilepsy or glaucoma.
