Prince Philip crash victim faces surgery to have metal plates implanted

Emma Fairweather said that she wants Philip, 97, “to know the full effect this is having on my life,” adding, “I’ve never had surgery before and I’ll have this titanium plate for life.” The support worker — whose job has been put on hold for the next month — was in the car with two other people at the time of the incident, including a 9-month-old baby who was not injured.

The woman who was injured in a car accident when Prince Philip’s  SUV hit her Kia last month  in Sandringham, England, is set to undergo surgery.

The  Daily Mail reported on Sunday, February 3, that 46-year-old Emma Fairweather will need to have a titanium plate inserted in her wrist after it did not heal naturally following the crash in January.

“This has completely knocked me,” Fairweather told the Mail. “It feels the last three weeks of pain and recovery have been pointless as I now have to start all over again. It’s like Groundhog Day.”
