In the aftermath of Prince Philip’s horrific car crash, the Queen has now reached out to the victims.
After The Mirror revealed that the Royals had made no contact with the women in the crash in an exclusive interview, they have now confirmed that Queen Elizabeth has since entrusted her lady-in-waiting to apologize on her behalf.
Mary Morrison, lady-in-waiting to the Queen, telephoned crash survivor Emma Fairweather.
In a voicemail to Fairweather, 46, Morrison said, “Hello, I’m ringing from Sandringham House.
“The Queen has asked me to telephone you to pass on her warmest good wishes following the accident and Her Majesty is very eager to know how you are and hope that everything is going as well as can be expected.”
“We’re all thinking of you very much at Sandringham, and I’ll try you at a later date. Unfortunately, I’ve got to go out quite shortly, but I hope all is well as can be expected for you. Thank you very much indeed. Goodbye.”
Philip has yet to contact the passengers despite the original report from the palace that said “well-wishes” were exchanged.
Fairweather still feels that Prince Philip should call her, “While it’s nice the Queen has seen it may be appropriate to ask one of her staff to contact me and wish me well, she wasn’t involved in the accident.
“I’m still quite surprised that Prince Philip hasn’t felt he wants to contact me and inquire as to how I am.”
She added that it was “confusing” for Queen Elizabeth who was not part of the crash to be the one reaching out.
Concluding that “the door is absolutely still open” for Philip to ring.
Some have suggested that Prince Philip has likely been advised by his counsel not to make contact until after the police have finished investigating the accident.
On Monday, Fairweather appeared on British morning chat show “This Morning” where she revealed that Norfolk Police still haven’t asked her to give a statement nor has she received a full medical check-up. She also said that Prince Philip should be considered for prosecution.
“There needs to be a decision as to whether Philip and I are from the same walk of life or not, and we either receive the same treatment or we don’t,” Fairweather added.
A Norfolk Police spokesman told The Telegraph: “In any collision investigation our priority is to ensure medical welfare is addressed in the first instance before taking any statement.
“We can confirm arrangements were made on Friday (18 January) to take a statement from the passenger involved in the collision. This will take place tomorrow (22 January).
“Further contact was attempted on a number of occasions over the weekend but unfortunately these were not successful.”
