Queen Elizabeth's 97-yr-old husband gives up driving licence after car crash

Prince Philip, the 97-year-old husband of British Queen Elizabeth II, has voluntarily surrendered his driving licence, weeks after the duke miraculously escaped unhurt in a terrifying accident that injured two women in another car."After careful consideration the Duke of Edinburgh has taken the decision to voluntarily surrender his driving licence," Buckingham Palace said in a brief statement.

He surrendered his licence on Saturday, the palace saidThe Prince's decision to hand over his driving licence was entirely his own and he will be driven from now on, it added.Norfolk Police confirmed that the duke had surrendered his licence to officers and it would now be returned to the DVLA, the BBC reported.Prince Philip's decision to surrender his licence comes weeks after he caused a car crash near the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, in which his Land Rover Freelander landed on its side after a collision with a Kia.
Though Philip was unhurt, the accident on January 17 stirred up a debate in the UK about old age and driving and raised questions over the duke still driving himself on public roads.Two days after the accident, the duke was pictured back behind the wheel of the new Land Rover without a seatbelt, which is illegal in Britain.Later, Norfolk Police gave him "suitable words of advice".
