Queen sends message to Prince Philip car crash victim

It's been three days since the incident

The Queen has reportedly given her "warmest good wishes" to Emma Fairweather, one of the people involved in the car accident with Prince Philip.

At the weekend, Emma - who suffered a broken arm in the crash - claimed she hadn't received an apology from the Duke of Edinburgh following the incident.

Speaking to The Mirror, Emma has revealed Her Majesty, 92, reached out to her via her most trusted lady-in-waiting, Mary Morrison - who has served the Queen since 1960.

Emma said Mary left her a voicemail message, which said: "Hello, I’m ringing from Sandringham House.

"The Queen has asked me to telephone you to pass on her warmest good wishes following the accident and Her Majesty is very eager to know how you are and hope that everything is going as well as can be expected.

"We’re all thinking of you very much at Sandringham and I’ll try you at a later date. Unfortunately I’ve got to go out quite shortly but I hope all is well as can be expected for you. Thank you very much indeed. Goodbye."

Palace sources revealed to the Mirror that the call from Her Majesty’s trusted aide did not take place until Saturday – two days after the crash.

However, Emma said she's "surprised" Prince Philip hasn't "felt he wants to contact me and inquire as to how I am".

The smash saw the 97-year-old Duke of Edinburgh's 4x4 Land Rover Freelander flipped onto its side after reportedly pulling out on another vehicle.

It was said Philip pulled out of a side road near the Queen's country house in Sandringham, Norfolk, hitting a Kia belonging to Emma's friend as it travelled along an A road.

Also in the Kia was her pal's nine-month-old baby, who escaped without serious injury.

Emma, 46, revealed that the incident left her "upset and overwhelmed".

Emma also said that onlookers told her Philip, who claimed to have been dazzled by the sun, was advised not to apologise at the scene.

At the time Buckingham Palace said in a statement that Philip was given a clean bill of health after a hospital check up.

It read: "On Doctor's advice, The Duke of Edinburgh visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn this morning for a precautionary check-up.

"This confirmed His Royal Highness had no injuries of concern. The Duke has returned to Sandringham.

"Contact has been made privately with the occupants in the other car and well-wishes exchanged."
