Turns out Queen Elizabeth has never been fond of Prince Philip's 'fast' driving
She's not impressed.
And we can be sure that last week's crash didn't come as a surprise to the Queen of England.
As it turns out, Queen Elizabeth has had plenty of experience in the car with Prince Philip during their 71-year-marriage.
Previously speaking to author, Betty Stew, in a rare letter that was recently auctioned, the queen wrote:
“Philip enjoys driving and does it fast! He has his own tiny M.G. which he is very proud of he has taken me about in it, once up to London, which was great fun, only it was like sitting on the road, and the wheels are almost as high as one’s head.”
Philip is known for his notorious driving as well as often cutting one-liners and it's reported that he has previously said "if you don’t like it, you can get out," in reference to his speedy driving.
And so, that's probably why the 97-year-old duke is back on the road, presumably against the request of his family.
According to reports, American Royal Commentator, Loni Love, said that Prince Philip might be refusing to give up driving because he wants to hide where he goes.
Royals author, Ingrid Seward, also noted that she believes Philip will listen to his families wishes "but whether he will take any action, I don’t know.”
No stopping him it appears.
