According to news reports, the Queen’s spouse, age 97, may have pulled his car out of the palace gate suddenly and into traffic. There was a collision and injuries to two women in the other auto. Shaken up by his car flip, the elderly Prince went back to Sandringham to his usual royal duties.
Of course, that won’t be the end of it, not when clever TV ambulance chasers get in on the case. First, they’ll inquire loudly why a nearly century-old guy is still driving, about 20 years past normal life span. Then, since the accident happened just after lunch, will the lawyers try to prove the prince had knocked off a pint or two before taking the wheel. And finally, think of all the millions of pounds sterling the attorneys will strive to dig out of the royal treasury. Oh, the humanity!
