The Duke of Edinburgh has visited hospital on doctor’s advice but has “no injuries of concern” after his crash, Buckingham Palace says.

Philip has been in contact with the occupants of the other car involved in the accident – two women who were injured, and a baby – and “well-wishes” exchanged, a palace spokeswoman said.

She added: “On doctor’s advice, the Duke of Edinburgh visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn this morning for a precautionary check-up.

“This confirmed His Royal Highness had no injuries of concern. The Duke has returned to Sandringham.”

The 97-year-old duke was lifted out of his overturned Land Rover after a “horrendous” crash near Sandringham Estate on Thursday.

Roy Warne said he had some of the royal’s blood on his hands after helping free Philip from the wreckage.
