Prince Philip crash: Queen’s message to woman hurt in accident with Duke in full – Mirror Online
The Queen has sent a private message of support to a woman who was injured in a traffic accident outside Sandringham.
Emma Fairweather, 46, suffered an injured wrist when her car was involved in a collision with Prince Philip’s Land Rover Freelander.
Queen Elizabeth has stepped ins to offer her best wishes with the Duke of Edinburgh apparently still yet to get in touch.
Lady-in-waiting Mary Morrison delivered the monarch’s “warmest good wishes following the accident” by phone.
Emma told the Daily Mirror that Miss Morrison, 81, left her a voicemail message
The message read in full: “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.”
A senior palace source said: “It is of huge significance the Queen chose Mary Morrison to make the contact.
“Mary is a close friend of the Queen and Her Majesty values her counsel immensely.
“She was given the Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order in the 2013, the highest order of chivalry that the monarch gives personally.
“They are very close and no doubt the Queen would have discussed concerns over the way this whole episode has played out.”
Emma, who turned 46 today, said she had felt “ignored and rejected” by the royals before receiving the message from the Queen.
But she insisted Prince Philip should have taken responsibility to contact her to check she was all right.
She added: “While it’s nice the Queen has seen it may be appropriate to ask one of her staff to contact me and wish me well, she wasn’t involved in the accident.
“I’m still quite surprised that Prince Philip hasn’t felt he wants to contact me and inquire as to how I am.
“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.”
