The Duke of Edinburgh has been photographed back behind the wheel as one of the women involved in last Thursday's vehicle crash was said to be "unhappy" with how the Palace had handled the accident.

Police confirmed they had carried out an eyesight test on Philip on Saturday morning, which he had passed.

The adult passenger who was injured in the crash has complained to the British press that she has not been contacted by Philip or the Queen since the accident occurred.

Although a palace spokesperson had no comment, Norfolk Police tell PEOPLE, "We are aware of the photograph".

Newspapers showed pictures of Philip driving a replacement Land Rover on Saturday at the royals' Sandringham residence in Norfolk.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said Philip exchanged "well-wishes" with the injured women following the collision on the busy A-road, but Ms Fairweather told the Sunday Mirror this was not the case.

She said the duke asked after the welfare of the Kia occupants, adding: "He looked so anxious and told me, "I'm such a fool".

Fairweather went on to share that while she did receive a message from a police family liaison officer, "the message he passed on didn't even make sense".

She was joined by son Prince Andrew for the service earlier today, but the Duke of Edinburgh was nowhere to be seen.

Princess Anne is asked how her father Prince Philip is faring after he was involved in a auto accident with another vehicle on Thursday.

It has been such a traumatic and painful time and I would have expected more of the Royal Family'.

The 72-year-old from Norfolk said: "The passenger from the other vehicle told me, "I always wanted to meet a royal - but not this way".

Buckingham Palace said: "A full message of support was sent to both the driver and the passenger".

Emma Fairweather, 46, was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a collision, January 17, 2019. with a auto driven by Prince Philip. The accident created quite a ruckus among the United Kingdom media who questioned about the Duke's age and his ability to drive in the public roads at an old age. According to royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell, the prince was conscious, yet clearly in a state of shock. "You can understand to a degree why he wants to just be on his own to have the freedom and independence that offers him", he said.

The accident is still being investigated and no one has been arrested or charged. The police investigation into the incident is ongoing.
