Days after his vehicle crash near the Sandringham estate, Prince Philip has been labelled as the "rudest human being ever" by controversial TV personality, Piers Morgan.

Emma Fairweather, 45, who was travelling with a female friend and a nine-month-old baby, was injured when the Kia they were travelling in was hit by a Land Rover Freelander being driven by the duke near Sandringham on Thursday. "It's highly insensitive and inconsiderate towards me and everyone involved".

Norfolk Police said "suitable words of advice" had been given to the driver.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror Ms Fairweather described the crash as being "in slow motion" and said she "couldn't stop screaming" as the 97-year-old's Land Rover smashed into her friend's Kia.

Fairweather, who was in a auto with a friend and her nine-month-old son, when the accident happened, said she received no apology from the duke.

"There needs to be a decision as to whether Prince Philip and I are from the same walk of life here or not", she said.

She said: "I'm very anxious, I don't know the truth of it but people keep saying to me that the Royal Family don't have to have insurance, so I'm [potentially] injured by an uninsured driver and I don't know the process. I just feel that his treatment or his experience hasn't been the same as mine".

It is understood palace officials contacted the women via a police liaison officer on Friday.

"I'm lucky to be alive and he hasn't even said sorry", she said.

Over the weekend, police spoke to the duke about the legal requirement to wear a belt and he also underwent an eyesight test, which he passed. He claimed to have been "dazzled by the sun" and reportedly apologized to everyone at the scene.

However, during here appearance on the ITV show, Fairweather backtracked slightly, saying: "I don't remember it being sunny that day but I would never want to put myself in a position to say that the Duke is not being honest but I do not recall that that day was sunny".

"He bought a brand new sports auto in August 1947, three months before they got married", veteran royals author Ingrid Seward, whose book My Husband and I examines their enduring marriage.

Although she did add that she was usually a Royalist. The only support I've had is my very immediate family.
