The Duke of Edinburgh was unhurt in the incident at Sandringham.

Prince Philip was involved in a car crash while driving near the Queen's Sandringham estate, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

The 97-year-old Duke was not injured in the accident, which occurred just before 3pm today (January 17).

Buckingham Palace said the crash involved one another vehicle, and police soon attended the scene.

The Duke of Edinburgh was driving his Range Rover, and was pulling out of a driveway onto the A149 when the accident took place.

Eyewitnesses have said that the car overturned.

The Duke was then helped out of the vehicle and was "very, very shocked" and shaken.

Two people in the other vehicle were treated for minor injuries, Norfolk Police has said.

Prince Philip is now back at Sandringham, and has been seen by a doctor, who later confirmed that he was not injured.

The Duke retired from public life back in August 2017.
