Prince Philip smash 'victim' faces driving ban after being charged with withholding details about two earlier road offences

01/25/2022

THE female passenger hurt in a crash with Prince Philip has been charged with withholding details about two earlier road offences.

Emma Fairweather, 48, allegedly failed to reveal within 28 days who was driving a VW Golf.


The incidents came on October 3 and 21  — three months before she broke a wrist and demanded Philip’s prosecution for hitting her pal’s car.

The mum has now been charged with two counts  of failing to name a driver when asked.

She was absent from a hearing before  King’s Lynn JPs, Norfolk, yesterday. It was adjourned until April 30.

Each charge carries up to six points — with 12 potentially enough to see her lose her licence.

CONVICTION COULD RESULT IN DRIVING BAN

It is unclear what wrongdoing the Golf driver alleged committed or who the registered keeper is.

But they are the ones usually asked to name drivers in suspected offences. Philip’s Land Rover flipped after he smashed into a Kia driven by Fairweather’s friend Ellie Townsend on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk in January.

Ms Townsend, 28, had minor cuts. Her nine-month-old son, strapped into a car seat, was unscathed.

But  Fairweather said: “It’s been a traumatic and painful time. I  expected more of the Royal Family.”

Philip, 97, later sent a letter of  apology.  The uninjured Duke escaped charges after he gave up his licence.
