Prince Philip finally apologises to the woman he injured in crash

Prince Philip has finally written a letter to the mother of two he injured in a car crash, as police announced they would finish their investigation into the incident ‘during the next week or so’.  

Prince Phillip was driving a Land Rover Freelander when it was in collision with a Kia carrying two women and a nine-month-old baby on January 17. 

However, despite the legal uncertainty, Prince Philip wrote a letter to Emma Fairweather who broke her wrist in the accident, to say he was sorry and had been dazzled by the ‘low sun’. 

Ms Fairweather said the Duke should be prosecuted if he was responsible for the accident. 

In the personal letter, seen by the Sunday Mirror, Prince Philip said he was ‘deeply sorry’ about the crash. 

He wished her a ‘speedy recovery and said he ‘failed to see the car coming’. 

He wrote: ‘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.
