The woman who broke her wrist when Prince Philip crashed into the car she was in is facing charges for “speeding then failing to name a driver”.

Emma Fairweather was a passenger in the Kia car with another woman and a baby when the collision took place on January 17.

The 46-year-old crash victim from Norfolk then criticised the decision not to prosecute Prince Philip and complained that no-one from the royal family had offered her an apology.

Ms Fairweather has been accused of speeding in a Volkswagen Golf on August 29 and, on October 3, was said to have failed to identify the driver of the vehicle.

Both of these offences carry a maximum of six penalty points, which would mean she could lose her licence if convicted.

Following the January crash, Ms Fairweather said it was insensitive of Prince Philip when he was pictured without wearing a seatbelt only three days after the crash.

Since the crash, the Duke has given his driving licence to the police and the Crown Prosecution Service decided they would not prosecute him.

The 97-year-old said he was blinded by the low sun so did not see any cars approaching.

His car flipped over following the incident and he was rescued by a passing motorist.

He did later write an apology to the car crash victims, saying: “I would like you to know how very sorry I am for my part in the accident at the Babingley cross-roads.

“I was somewhat shaken after the accident, but I was greatly relieved that none of you were seriously injured.

“I wish you a speedy recovery from a very distressing experience.”
