The Duke of Edinburgh has voluntarily surrendered his driving licence, Buckingham Palace has announced.

The Duke of Edinburgh has voluntarily surrendered his driving licence just over three weeks after he overturned his auto in a collision with another vehicle near the Queen's Sandringham estate.

United Kingdom police sent their investigation of the crash to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), which is considering whether to bring charges against Prince Philip over the crash last month. We're told CPS will provide "advice on how to proceed".

"Norfolk Police can confirm that the 97-year-old driver of the Land Rover involved in the collision at Sandringham on Thursday 17 January 2019 has today (Saturday 9 February 2019) voluntarily surrendered his licence to officers", the police department stated.

The Duke of Edinburgh escaped the incident without injury while the other driver, a 28-year-old woman, suffered cuts to her knee and her 45-year-old female passenger sustained a broken wrist.

He had to be helped out of his overturned vehicle but was not injured.

Buckingham Palace calculated he had completed 22,219 solo engagements since 1952.

Wearing tinted glasses, he was photographed at the wheel of a replacement Land Rover while not wearing a seatbelt in the ensuing days. While he emerged unharmed, two people in the other vehicle sustained minor injuries and were treated at a hospital before they were later discharged.

Police in the eastern part of England where the accident happened outside a royal residence said they had passed Philip's file to prosecutors to determine whether anyone should be charged.
