Doctors reportedly have given Philip a clear bill of health and the Queen is at his side.
“We were called to the scene at around 3 p.m. to reports of a two-vehicle collision. The road is not blocked. Recovery has been called and we are at the scene waiting for them to arrive,” a spokesperson with the police said.
Buckingham Palace issued a statement about the crash later that read, “The Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a road traffic accident with another vehicle this afternoon. The Duke was not injured. The accident took place close to the Sandringham Estate. Local police attended the scene.”
Two other people in the vehicle were treated for minor injuries.
The Queen and Duke have been staying at the Sandringham Estate since the Christmas, where other members of the royal family, like Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William, Kate Middleton and family spent the holidays.
