Prince Philip's apology letter to car crash victim Emma Fairweather revealed in full



The Duke of Edinburgh has told a mother-of-two who was injured in a car crash he was involved in that he is "deeply sorry".

In a letter to Ms Fairweather dated January 21, Philip wished her a "speedy recovery" and said he "failed to see the car coming".

The note, reported by the Sunday Mirror, said: "I would like you to know how very sorry I am for my part in the accident at the Babingley cross-roads.

"I have been across that crossing any number of times and I know very well the amount of traffic that uses that main road.

"It was a bright sunny day and at about three in the afternoon, the sun was low over the Wash.

"In other words, the sun was shining low over the main road. In normal conditions I would have no difficulty in seeing traffic coming from the Dersingham direction, but I can only imagine that I failed to see the car coming, and I am very contrite about the consequences.

"I was somewhat shaken after the accident, but I was greatly relieved that none of you were seriously injured.

"As a crowd was beginning to gather, I was advised to return to Sandringham House by a local police officer.

"I have since learned that you suffered a broken arm.

"I am deeply sorry about this injury.

"I wish you a speedy recovery from a very distressing experience."


The letter is signed "Yours sincerely Philip".

Ms Fairweather, 46, told the Sunday Mirror she was "chuffed" with the letter, adding: "I thought it was really nice that he signed off as 'Philip' and not the formal title.

"I was pleasantly surprised because of the personalised nature.

"A lot of people said it was unrealistic that I wanted that human kindness from Prince Philip - which is what I saw this letter as.
"

It is understood a similar letter was sent to the driver of the Kia.

How about the police investigation? Next decade maybe. This reminds me of a plane crash where they analyze the blackbox but we never hear the results.

Anecdotal:
High priority targets often lose the habit of seat belts, after security drills in cars.
The seat belt is a safety feature for driving and a hazard for a target, or targeted vehicle.
It gets evaluated, see history 101. If security is not present the duck and cover instinct is all present.
There were 4 people in Diana's car three idiots and a victim that survived with a seat belt.
Example:
https://www.vosizneias.co...-did-pres-bush-break-law/
https://thehill.com/blogs...ade-a-seatbelt-free-zone-
Its trained and its applied even if the vehicle is bullet proof.
Another one:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvOJn2LUPy4

So Phill just follows what he learned, its instinct. If second, third cars are glued to the vehicle, then seat belts are usually worn, mostly for photographs of the dutiful, disciplined driver. Smiley

I do hate that because of his age and titles he has been made to assume the fault and apologize before the police have completed (to our knowledge) their investigation.  Yes, it has been 10 days since the crash but proper investigations do take time...if we were talking a month+ I would be more concerned about a cover-up.  Even now should the investigation find the other driver at fault no one would believe it.

Yes, there are more accident stories coming out of the woodwork...1948, 1971, 1987, 1996, "many years ago", and "a few years back"...so yes this does make the 7th in 70 years (if I counted right).  But that does not automatically mean he was at fault for this accident.

The passenger of the Kia said that when they say him they were 150 yards away...as Kaiserin pointed out (https://royaldish.com/ind...190.msg1187366#msg1187366) more than enough time to stop.  Somethings not adding up for me with this passenger...on sick leave because of the crash but going to London for interviews, wants Philip to assume blame, and has admitted that her own lawyers don't think she has a case.  Something's sketchy.

I thought it was fishy as soon as this person started appearing on morning shows whining about her lot.  If I was her employer I would be asking her to come into a meeting with HR.  If you are driving at or close to the speed limit you should be able to stop.  Was there a sign indicating a hidden road?  I’ve seen them  in England.  The Royals are so vulnerable to this sort of thing.  If it had been plain Mr. Smith, there would be no demand for an apology. Finally, until the police investigation is complete, nobody should assume Prince Phillip is the guilty party.

He is at fault. He pulled out from a driveway/side street into traffic on the main road. The main road has the right of way. It isn't on the traffic on the main road to slow down it's on the person merging/turning to make sure it's clear before enter. It's the same as merging on the highway, entering traffic does not have the right of way nor does traffic currently on the road have to yield.

Should they have been able to stop? Sure in a perfect world. More then once as a Paramedic I head pts say they though the other person would stop, or they were distracted. Maybe the brakes were shit on the Kia. I had an accident a few years ago very similar to this. The other person had time to lay on the horn but never hit their brakes. Since I was pulling out I got the ticket even though police told her it could have been avoided if she braked (25mph zone).

Different countries have different rules/laws.  Phillips vehicle would probably been very heavy with armoured plating.  and bullet proof glass. For it to have flipped on it's side it would have had to be hit with a huge force. We may never know who was at fault or they were both considered to be at fault. Here in Saskatchewan Canada merging traffic on the new round abouts have the right of way. Also at uncontrolled intersections here traffic on the right has the right away if two or more vehicles reach the intersection at the same time.

That must have changed in the 2 weeks since I was last there. Two weeks ago they were like every other country I've driven in (granted only 4) and traffic IN the circle has the right of way (if it's a 2 lane one inner traffic takes precedence shown here https://www.sgi.sk.ca/han...rging-diamond-interchange) while those entering have to yield.  In my many years as a Paramedic plus my husbands years as a firefighter we have seen many rolled/flipped vehicles.  People would be surprised as what can cause it if hit at just the right angle. Motorcycles have been known to flip SUV's.

Currently in the Netherlands you have to undergo a medical check up when ≥75 years old and wanting to renew your drivers license. Most of the people need additional (specialist) testing and/or have to comply with additional requirements. Often this comes across as being at random.  For example, according to the valid rules my mother passed the requirements with regard to her medical status, but was still required to go to a eye-specialist (which you have to pay yourself). After seeing her struggle, I took over. It took me a lot of frustration, about 4 weeks, about 5-10 hours on the phone (most of the time I was put on hold), writing & sending letters, etc., but she didn't had to go to an eye specialist. Mom got the green light for her drivers license.

Since it is currently a huge chaos and  such at the responsible organization, many people are frustrated, angry and still awaiting their (renewed) driving license.

Made us wonder how they would treat the elderly Dutch royals and other prominent members of Dutch society. For example I expect Beatrix wouldn't have to wait for news and info about the status of her drivers license (and related requirements).
