Preicatbly one of the people in the other vehicle has popped up in a Sunday tabloid (The Mirror) whining about how Prince Philip hasn't contacted them and apologised. Well, in my experience the one thing you should never do is apologise for a road traffic accident as in doing so you are admitting fault, and insurance companies don't like that!

Perhaps they can all expect honours in the Queen's Birthday list as some sort of bribe for not taking a private prosecution for dangerous / careless driving, or driving without due care and attention.

Not defending Prince Philip's driving in this at all, frankly I don't believe anyone over the are of 80 should be driving without regular health tests on their eyesight, reactions and a brief road test, perhaps every 2 years.
