Prince Philip, the 97-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has made contact with Emma Fairweather, who was a passenger in the other car that he hit ten days ago and who suffered a broken arm as a result:
The letter is dated one day after Fairweather complained to The Daily Mirror that Philip had not bothered to reach out to her since the accident.
Fairweather now says “I thought it was really nice that he signed off as ‘Philip’ and not the formal title. I was pleasantly surprised because of the personalized nature. A lot of people said it was unrealistic that I wanted that human kindness from Prince Philip – which is what I saw this letter as.”
Philip was back in his (replacement) Land Rover today, but for once, he was sitting in the passenger seat - and even wearing his seat belt. Maybe Liz finally put her foot down.
