Queen Elizabeth II recently attended a church service at St. Peters church in Wolverton near the Sandringham estate but without Prince Philip.

The 92-year-old was photographed smiling as she arrived and left the church on Sunday. She wore a taupe brown coat and hat during the service and was accompanied by her son Prince Andrew. Her Majesty also greeted royal fans that waited for her arrival.

The monarch’s public outing on Sunday was the last time she was seen after Prince Philip reportedly got into a car accident just outside Sandringham. The 97-year-old was driving his Land Rover by himself when he collided with a Kia. There were three passengers in the other vehicle, and two of them suffered from minor cuts and bruises.

Prince Philip didn’t join the Queen at the Sunday service because he may be recuperating at home following the accident. But even before the collision took place, the Duke of Edinburgh hasn’t also joined Her Majesty in the church services starting off on Christmas Day.

The 97-year-old royal has retired from his job in 2017, and he seldom makes public appearances with the royal family. Prince Philip last reunited with his relatives in public at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s royal wedding on Oct. 12 at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

In related news, royal fans and experts are blaming the fact that Prince Philip may be a little too old that’s why the accident occurred. Royal biographer Penny Junor told Express that Prince Philip shouldn’t have been allowed to drive by himself.

“I have no idea who the fault lay with – but he is 97 years old and maybe his reactions are not as fast as they once were,” she said.

James Wood, a journalist for Daily Mail, came to Prince Philip’s defense and said that he must have been dazzled by the strong sunlight during his outing. New photos were released to show the difficult driving conditions in the area once the sun is out.

Prince Philip’s accident took place as he pulled out of a side road on to the 60mph limit road.
