The Duke of Edinburgh has chose to give up driving and voluntarily surrender his licence to police following a recent crash near Sandringham, Buckingham Palace has announced.

The palace said the royal made the decision after "careful consideration".

Norfolk Police confirmed that Philip voluntarily surrendered his licence to officers on Saturday. We're told CPS will provide "advice on how to proceed".

Prince Philip has voluntarily given up his driving licence after his horror crash outside the Queen's country estate Sandringham at Norfolk.

Two female driver of the Kia suffered cuts while her passenger sustained a broken wrist.

When Britain's Prince Philip flipped his Land Rover last month and miraculously walked away from what could have been a deadly accident, many wondered how long it would take for Queen Elizabeth II to ask him to hand over his keys for good.

Buckingham Palace calculated he had completed 22,219 solo engagements since 1952.

In a letter dated January 21, Philip wished Ms Fairweather a "speedy recovery" and said he "failed to see the auto coming".

After weeks of advancing steadily, the SDF halted their ground assault on ISIS's tiny remaining enclave. Four years ago, IS controlled territory the size of Britain and administered millions of people.

Philip came under days of media criticism for failing to quickly and publicly apologize for causing the crash. Philip wrote Fairweather an apology on Sandringham House's stationary last month, per The Daily Mirror.

His Land Rover overturned but he was not injured.

AA president Edmund King said the decision to quit driving can be a hard one.

The Duke was photographed driving again two days later, without a seatbelt.

"As is standard procedure with injury collisions, the incident will be investigated and any appropriate action taken", the statement says.

He blamed the low, bright sun for obscuring his vision, adding he was "very contrite about the consequences".

The other driver, a 28-year-old woman, suffered cuts to her knee and a 45-year-old woman passenger in the vehicle, which also had a nine-month-old baby on board, sustained a broken wrist.

He told Emma Fairweather, who suffered a broken wrist in the crash: "I can only imagine that I failed to see the vehicle coming, and I am very contrite about the consequences".
