The duke, 97, was driving a Land Rover Freelander, which flipped over after it was hit by another auto when he pulled out of a driveway near the Queen's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, on to a busy A-road.

Prince Philip, 97, was recovering at the Sandringham estate in Norfolk on Friday after the crash that left him "very shaken and shocked", but otherwise uninjured.

Buckingham Palace says Prince Philip the husband of Queen Elizabeth II had been in a traffic accident and is not injured.

The 97-year-old Duke was not injured in the accident, which occurred just before 3pm today (January 17).

According to reports, Prince Philip - who rolled his posh Land Rover SUV Thursday - is in her majesty's royal dog house.

Pelosi. "No", a senior White House official said when asked if the economic assessment alters the president's shutdown plans. Now Trump has written to her - in apparent retaliation - to deny her use of military aircraft for a trip overseas .

His retirement came more than five years after Buckingham Palace initially said he would commence scaling back his workload, though he remained eager to continue many of his duties.

While Philip managed to escape the collision relatively unharmed, considering the state of his auto, the person driving the other vehicle involved in the accident needed medical treatment.

The Prince of Wales raised concerns about the Duke of Edinburgh's driving five years ago when his father was still travelling around the capital in his famous black cab.

Philip still drives himself around Sandringham and Windsor Castle and is known to prefer the Land Rover Freelander 2.

It's been reported both Prince Philip and the other driver were breathalysed at the scene. The three were taken to the hospital and soon released.

Another human rights group says 26 people suffered gunshot wounds and that some were afraid to go to hospitals for fear of arrest. The government blames civil society activists and the opposition of being responsible for the nationwide demonstrations.

Prince Philip had been staying at the Sandringham Estate with the Queen for the Christmas period, and is said to have been checked over by a doctor at the estate.

A witness said there was a baby and a man in the Kia as well, but police have not confirmed this.

The force said both drivers tested negative. Though increasingly out of the range of journalists and photographers-he even skipped the obligatory Christmas church service on December 25-he's kept up his private duties of being in charge of the royal family's private estates.

By coincidence, Norfolk County Council is scheduled to meet on Friday to discuss plans to reduce the speed limit on the road from 60mph to 50mph and install safety cameras.

"The Range Rover was on its side on a private road", long-time Babingley resident Nick Cobb told BBC News. He was very shaken and he went and asked: 'Is everyone else alright?' He's a very courageous man.
