“After careful consideration the Duke of Edinburgh has taken the decision to voluntarily surrender his driving licence,’’ the statement said.
Norfolk Police also recently released another statement on the incident.
“As is standard procedure with injury collisions, the incident will be investigated and any appropriate action taken,” the statement says.
“We are aware of the public interest in this case, however, as with any other investigation it would be inappropriate to speculate on the causes of the collision until an investigation is completed.”
The 97-year-old duke sent a note to Emma Fairweather, 46, after she suffered a broken wrist following a collision with his Land Rover on January 17.
In a signed note, Philip says he was “shaken” by the event and was “deeply sorry”.
“I would like you to know how very sorry I am for my part in the accident at the Babingley cross-roads,” the letter reads, according to the Sunday Mirror.
“In other words, the sun was shining low over the main road."
"In normal conditions I would have no difficulty in seeing traffic coming from the Dersingham direction, but I can only imagine that I failed to see the car coming, and I am very contrite about the consequences."
