THE victim of Prince Philip’s horror car crash has told how she screamed “Where’s the baby” moments after their Kia slammed into the duke’s Land Rover when he pulled out into a main road.
Single mother Emma Fairweather, speaking for the first time, said she believes the 97-year-old Duke of Edinburgh’s actions could have killed her, a friend and a nine-month-old baby if it hadn’t been for their careful driving. The mother-of-two from King’s Lynn, Norfolk, revealed that no-one from the Palace has tried to contact her to apologise, despite Buckingham Palace saying on Friday that contact had been made “privately” with the people in the other car “and well wishes exchanged”.
Yesterday the duke was back behind the wheel alone and without a seatbelt.
But Emma said: “I still haven’t had any contact from the Royal household. Maybe he should prioritise that over test driving his new car.”
The royal fan says she feels “ignored and rejected” by the duke and the Queen after Thursday’s smash.
She now questions whether the duke, who was left bloodied and shaken by the small, should be allowed to continue driving and is considering a personal injury claim.
It would mean the world to me if Prince Philip said sorry but I have no idea if he’s sorry at all
Emma will spend her 46th birthday today on painkillers with her arm in a cast after being left with a broken wrist when the Duke’s 4×4 ploughed into the Kia that Emma, her 28-year-old friend and her friend’s baby were travelling in, flipping his car just outside the Sandringham estate on Thursday afternoon.
Emma said yesterday it was thanks to her friend’s careful driving that no-one was killed, saying: “If she wasn’t going at the speed limit, who knows what would have happened? Could someone have died?”
Emma screamed from the front seat: “Where’s the baby?” repeatedly in the wreckage and says she fears someone could even have been killed if her pal, who she does not want to name, wasn’t such a careful driver.
She said: “We could see the Land Rover about 150 yards away from us at a junction, then it started to move.
