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.”



At this point, it is unclear who or what caused the accident, and how the other parties involved are doing. The Queen is reportedly with Philip now.

Prince Philip has not been seen at public events in several months. The Duke of Edinbugh, who is 97 and had a few health setbacks lately, reportedly "operates on a 'wake up and see how I feel' basis," according to The Telegraph. 

We'll continue to update this story as we know more about the accident and Prince Philip's condition.
