Prince Philip is seen behind the wheel for the first time since he handed in his driver's license

Prince Philip, 97, has been seen behind the wheel for the first time since he turned in his driver's license for a horror crash during a private country ride at Windsor Castle

  • Duke of Edinburgh was seen today through the grounds of Windsor Castle
  • It comes after the 97-year-old prince voluntarily submitted his permit in February
  • Because the castle is on private property, he can still drive around freely
  • Duke was recently told that he would not take criminal action for the January horror

For the first time since his surrender of his driver's license, Prince Philip was spotted at the wheel of his new Land Rover.

The Duke of Edinburgh rode through the grounds of Windsor Castle today while the Queen participated in the Maundy service at nearby St. George's Chapel.

It is after the 97-year-old voluntarily gave up his permit in February, after he turned his car around in Norfolk and injured two women during a crash the previous day.

Because Windsor Castle is on private property, the Prince can still drive freely, but is no longer allowed to use the public roads around the estate.

The duke was recently told that he would not take criminal action because of his horror outburst in which his Land Rover Freelander hit a Kia at a T-junction.

The Public Prosecution Service said it was not in the & # 39; public interest to prosecute & # 39; after the collision at Sandringham, Norfolk in January.

He escaped the injury, but Emma Fairweather, 46, broke her wrist and called for Prince Philip to be prosecuted if he was found guilty.

He said he & # 39; deeply sorry & # 39; was and explained that he was familiar with the intersection he could only imagine & # 39; that the low sun prevented him from seeing her coming.

The duke seemed to be responsible a few days after the accident in a letter to Mrs. Fairweather.

In his 181-word typed letter, Prince Philip wished her a & # 39; quick recovery from a very distressing experience & # 39 ;.

Two days ago, Norfolk Police confirmed that they were still investigating Prince Philip's crash on January 17, when his Land Rover continued calling after being hit by a Kia.

The accident happened when Philip pulled from a side road to the 60mph border A149 road.

According to an eyewitness, & # 39; cleaned & # 39 ;, driven by a 28-year-old mother, the duke's car ended up in a hedge of smoke from the engine.

On January 21, Prince Philip sent her a letter in which she received a & # 39; speed recovery & # 39; and that he & # 39; did not see the car coming & # 39 ;, reported the Sunday Mirror.
