The Duke of Edinburgh has been seen driving a new Land Rover two days after being involved in a crash on a road near his Sandringham estate.
Forward thinking officials at the palace have now put the wheels in motion for Philip’s inevitable post-horrific-car-crash funeral, although the Duke of Edinburgh nearly discovered secret plans were being made when he ran in after overhearing the words ‘wheels’ and ‘motion’.
A new Freelander, the model the Prince was seen driving, was delivered to Sandringham on Friday.
You have to feel sorry for the old boy, having to wait a whole 24 hours for a brand new Land Rover to be delivered free of charge to his home, and not getting to experience the joy of taking out a massive loan for one like the rest of us.
Prince Philip was unhurt in Thursday’s crash but the two women in the Kia that he hit were injured. The driver, a 28-year-old woman, suffered cuts, while a 45-year-old woman passenger broke her wrist.
There are fears that in his old age Prince Philip has simply confused his favourite pastime of ‘hitting on younger women’ with just ‘hitting younger women’.
Details of the Duke’s funeral are being kept a closely guarded secret, although there are rumours that the funeral procession will pay tribute to his driving skills with the coffin being propelled at force into the church on its side and on fire.
