It really is most fortunate that all walked with minor cuts and bruises after an accident that had potentially fatal consequences. Had it been that instead of a small vehicle, a lorry or another Defender involved, instead of a Royal cock up there would have been a Royal funeral.
I seem to have missed the bit where the investigation concluded who was at fault
