In his 181-word typed letter, Prince Philip wished Ms Fairweather a ‘speedy recovery from a very distressing experience’
The Kia Ms Fairweather was travelling in was being driven by her 28-year-old friend whose nine-month-old baby was also in the car.
The Duke of Edinburgh reportedly said ‘I’m such a fool’ after being pulled from his wrecked Freelander after it flipped on its side following a collision with a Kia close to Sandringham.
But after passing an eye test he was back behind the wheel of a new Land Rover, just 48 hours after the dramatic crash.
Images published shortly afterwards show the Duke wearing dark glasses with no seatbelt in a new Freelander delivered to him on the Queen’s Sandringham estate.
Police gave the Duke of Edinburgh an official warning after the photos emerged.
The Duke appeared to admit responsibility in a letter to Ms Fairweather several days after the accident.
