Her Majesty The Queen has sent a message to Emma Fairweather, one of the people in the Kia that crashed with Prince Philip’s Land Rover last week on the A149 near the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
Ms Fairweather, who suffered a broken wrist as a result of the accident, exclusively revealed to the Mirror that Her Majesty reached out to her via her most trusted lady-in-waiting, Mary Morrison.
Morrison phoned Ms Fairweather to deliver The Queen’s “warmest good wishes following the accident.”
In a voicemail, Morrison, who is also a close friend of Her Majesty, told Fairweather, “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. Unfortunately, I’ve got to go out quite shortly, but I hope all is well as can be expected for you. Thank you very much indeed. Goodbye.”
Palace sources revealed to the Mirror that the call from Her Majesty’s trusted aide did not occur until Saturday – two days after the Norfolk crash.
However, there has still been no message from the Duke of Edinburgh, and Fairweather remarked that it was nice for The Queen to reach out. However, she insisted that it should have been His Royal Highness reaching out instead of Her Majesty as he was the one involved in the car collision.
“I’m still quite surprised that Prince Philip hasn’t felt he wants to contact me and inquire as to how I am,” she said.
She added, “Receiving a message from someone else’s partner who wasn’t involved in the accident is confusing. The door is absolutely still open for him to reach out.”
