Royal justice: Victim wants Prince Philip charged over car crash

Royal justice: Victim wants Prince Philip charged over car crash

The driver of the car that Prince Philip crashed into says that she wants the Prince to face consequences if he is to be found at fault for the crash.

Emma Fairweather made her thoughts known after speaking on British television.

She called the Duke “highly insensitive and inconsiderate” after he was spotted just days after the crash not wearing a seatbelt.

“There needs to be a decision as to whether Prince Philip and I are from the same walk of life here or not,” she said.

“I feel that his treatment has not been the same as mine.”

Fairweather’s comments come after she realised she has been waiting for police to contact her to make a statement about the incident.

“I need somebody to understand that I still have medical concerns. I’m very worried that I haven’t been asked for a statement from the police,” Fairweather said.

Although she has been contacted by one of the Queen’s ladies in waiting, it doesn’t seem to be enough.

“She left me a voicemail that was just an hour or two before my interview with the papers became known … to say that the Queen wished me well, and that she would like to call me back but she was going out for the evening.”

The other passenger, Ellie Townsend, was in the car with her nine-month-old son. 

A relative of the family has spoken out to The Sun saying: “It’s scary to think what could have happened.

“She’s just still very shaken and wants to spend time with her son and husband Shaun. The pair of them are lucky to be alive.

“They are doing as well as can be expected after a traumatic event.
