The Duke of Edinburgh was reportedly involved in a car accident on January 17 near Sandringham, in which his vehicle, a Range Rover, overturned. He and the Queen are still in the area following the Christmas holiday.

Local radio station KLFM967 reportedly first broke the news of the crash, sharing photos in which the damage appears to be quite severe. According to the publication, the accident took place on the A149 and that an ambulance was called for minor injuries.

Royal reported Victoria Arbiter also posted about the accident on Twitter, "Breaking: Per Buckingham Palace the Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a car accident close to Sandringham today. I'm glad to say he was not injured. Local police attended the scene."


Reporter Rhiannon Mills also posted a quote from Buckingham Palace “The Duke of Edinburgh was involved in a road traffic accident with another vehicle this afternoon. The Duke was not injured. The accident took place close to the Sandringham Estate.”
