Can we all breathe a collected sigh of relieve now that the duke has been forced to give up driving.?

Are the rumours true that he has had a new helicopter delivered real ?

  • I am not relieved. I was never fearful. There are few perfect drivers.
    All people should be judged on their own driving skills - whatever their age.
    If Philip assessed that he should stop driving - so be it. I imagine that, even if he passed a medical and driving test, he would have been very shaken by the accident.

  • It's relief, not relieve and it's Duke, not duke. Just saying.

  • Actually I feel sad for him that this has had to happen. I suspect the police have decided he was to blame for the accident so he's had to accept reality. He hasn't been forced to stop driving btw, considering they own huge estates with lots of private roads he could still continue to drive on. He has only handed in his Licence which was inevitable at some point - sooner than later.

  • He doesn't need a licence to drive around the Royal estates, Windsor, Sandringham, Balmoral. He can still pick people off there.
