Do NOT Think That Prince Philip, 97-Years Old, Queen’s Husband Or Not, Should Be Driving On Public Roads.

Range Rover he was driving — on its side after accident.

Wow. This blew my mind. He is 97-years old. That is one heck of an age. Driving … on public roads. That just doesn’t seem right.

What I always say about older drivers. It is not that they can kill themselves. That is OK. It is that they can kill somebody else. We were all LUCKY here. The others young ladies involved in the accident, including a 9-month old baby boy, were not badly hurt. But, they could have been. If they were, or if they were killed, there would have been hell to pay.

Yes, he is essentially ‘King’, but this is also the 21st century. He can’t go around causing mayhem.

I kind of like him. He, of course, is not in the same league as the Queen. Something about him. To I, he comes across as a total toff. But, I don’t dislike him. Find him vaguely amusing. Yes, appreciate that he has done a lot for the Queen and as such for the country and us. So, I am cool with that. This is not about him personally. It is about a 97-year old driving.

I am so glad it ended like it did. It could have been so, so worse.
