Emma Fairweather added that she hadn’t received support from the police.
One of the women involved in the car crash involving Prince Philip on Thursday has spoken out on This Morning. Emma Fairweather, who was a passenger in the Kia involved in the accident, opened up about the incident to Holly Willoughby and John Barrowman on Monday, revealing that Prince Philip wanted to approach her and her friend following the crash. Speaking about the “surreal” experience, she said: “[Prince Philip] did try to [speak to us] but he was advised not to, so I don’t know what happened… I don’t think asking if you’re okay is accepting liability.”
She added that she hadn’t heard from police or Prince Philip following the crash, explaining: “The support I was offered initially at the scene of the accident hasn’t really been a reality for me… I think an acknowledgement – not so much an admission of responsibility but somebody to talk to me about how difficult this is going to be for me and how difficult it’s been already… The only support I’ve had is my very immediate family.”
Emma added that she hadn’t received any insurance details, and that she was “concerned” after she was told that the royal family doesn’t have insurance. However, a palace spokesperson has previously stated that the royal family did reach out to the two women in the other car, saying: “Contact has been made privately with the occupants in the other car and well-wishes exchanged.” Emma previously revealed to the Mirror that the Queen’s lady-in-waiting, Mary Morrison, left her a voicemail which said: “Hello, I’m ringing from Sandringham House. The Queen has asked me to telephone you to pass on her warmest good wishes following the accident and Her Majesty is very eager to know how you are and hope that everything is going as well as can be expected. We’re all thinking of you very much at Sandringham and I’ll try you at a later date.”
