'The Duke of Edinburgh has given up driving as police passed their file on his crash near the Sandringham estate to prosecutors, it emerged on Saturday.
Buckingham Palace announced that the 97-year-old duke voluntarily surrendered his driving licence after “careful consideration”.
It comes almost a month after he was involved in a crash on a crossroads near the Queen's Norfolk estate in which his Land Rover was overturned.
The collision left the female passenger of a Kia Carens with a broken wrist, while a woman driver and nine-month-old baby boy escaped unharmed from their smoke-filled car.
Norfolk Police have been investigating the crash for three weeks, interviewing witnesses to decide whether it was in the public interest to bring about a prosecution. On Saturday the force said it had sent the file onto the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
A spokesman for Norfolk Police said: “Norfolk Police can confirm that the 97 year old driver of the Land Rover involved in the collision at Sandringham on Thursday 17 January 2019 has today voluntarily surrendered his licence to officers.
“We will follow the standard procedure and return the licence to the DVLA.
“The investigation file for the collision has been passed to the Crown Prosecution Service for their consideration.”'
