Traditionally, the Queen attended the Sunday service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk, a day after Prince Philip gave up his driving license voluntarily. She seemed to be in a good mood, dressed in a bright yellow jacket which she paired with a hat of the same color and added a camel coat to keep her warm. She was in the company of the Lady in Waiting.
On Saturday, the Buckingham Palace announced that after careful consideration, the Duke of Edinburgh decided to make this decision.
Prince Philip was inspired to do this due to an event that happened on 17 January, when he was involved in a car accident. He collided with another vehicle with his Land Rover Freelancer. As a result, the passenger in the other car suffered an injury.
A week later he sent a letter to his fans thanking for their love and support after this shocking event.
Meanwhile, the Queen had quite an eventful week. On 6 February, she marked 67 years on the throne which makes her the longest reigning monarch in British history. For her, it is both a happy and sad they, since it marks her father’s death. When George VI died on 6 February 1952, Princess Elizabeth became the Queen. He died from lung cancer at Sandringham House. Elizabeth was only 25 years old and was thousands of miles away from home. Precisely, she was on tour in Kenya with Prince Philip. Queen Elizabeth II has ruled for 24,472 days and is now only three years away from her platinum 70 years on the throne.
