A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “After careful consideration The Duke of Edinburgh has taken the decision to voluntarily surrender his driving licence.”

Witness Roy Warne, 75, said of the smash near Sandringham, Norfolk: “It was frightening to see.”

Mr Warne also told how Prince Philip said he was “dazzled by the sun” at a T-junction before his Land Rover hit another car carrying a mother and baby.

He said The Duke of Edinburgh was pulled from the wreckage “conscious” but “very, very shocked and shaken”.

Prince Philip was breathalysed by police following the horrific smash.

Barrister Roy, 75, who was first at the scene, helped to free the “disorientated” royal from his motor, which had overturned.

He heard the Duke later admit to cops he had been “dazzled by the sun”.

Roy was driving home with his wife Victoria, 72, shortly before 3pm and saw the Land Rover flip a split-second after the collision.

Prince Philip was trapped inside and told rescuers: “My legs! Where should I put my legs?”
