At the age of 97, and less than a month after walking away unscathed from a crash that left two women injured, Prince Philip has decided it's time to come out from behind the wheel, Buckingham Palace said Saturday.
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh arrives at Paddington Station with Queen Elizabeth II as they mark the 175th anniversary of the first train journey by a British Monarch on June 13, 2017 in London, United Kingdom.
A CPS statement said the file would be reviewed before a decision to charge or not was brought, and noted that prosecutors "will take this development into account".
The January crash occurred just outside the royal family's Sandringham estate when the Duke's auto collided with another vehicle, injuring passenger Emma Fairweather.
Two female driver of the Kia suffered cuts while her passenger sustained a broken wrist.
Buckingham Palace said that he surrendered his licence on Saturday.
The accident left the Duke's auto flipped onto its side, with a witness later telling the Press Association that he helped pull a bloodied Philip from the vehicle.
Prince Philip reportedly surrendered his licence to Norfolk Police, who are responsible for investigating the crash, though details of the investigation are yet to be released.
"The sun was shining low over the main road".
After complaining of a "lack of communication" from Prince Philip, the passenger received a letter from the Duke with an apology for the incident.
Police issued Philip with "suitable words of advice" and said "any appropriate action" would be taken if necessary.
The Duke was photographed driving again two days later, without a seatbelt. "I was pleasantly surprised because of the personalized nature".
In 2016, the duke famously drove the Obamas when the then U.S. president and First Lady visited Windsor.
Since retiring from official solo duties, he has appeared in public alongside the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at events and church services.
