Queen is seen with Prince Philip for first time since car accident

The Queen has been seen with Prince Philip for the first time since his car accident in a rare public appearance. 

The Duke of Edinburgh, 97, joined the Queen, 93, at a lunch for members of the Order of Merit at Windsor Castle today. 

The royal couple, who have just become great-grandparents for the eighth time following the arrival of Baby Sussex, posed for a group photograph before the Queen was quizzed on the newest addition to the family by one of the guests. 

It is the first time Philip has been seen in public since his Land Rover crashed near the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk in January.

The Queen was asked by one guest: ‘Life is good for Your Majesty?’, to which the Queen replied: ‘Yes, thank you.’

‘Congratulations. Another great-grandchild!’ the guest said to her. The Queen replied happily: ‘Yes, I know.’

She was then asked ‘How many of them have you got now?’ before replying ‘Eight’.

Buckingham Palace said on Monday that the Queen and the Duke were ‘delighted’ at the news of the birth of Harry and Meghan’s baby son.

The Queen and Philip gathered with Sir David Attenborough, artist David Hockney, former Commons Speaker Baroness Boothroyd, and inventor of the World Wide Web Sir Timothy Berners-Lee, among others, for a group shot inside the castle.

The Order of Merit was created in 1902 by Edward VII to honour leaders in the arts, sciences, culture and military, and is limited to just 24 living members. Philip, 97, was made a member of the Order in 1968.

He voluntarily surrendered his driving licence after he pulled out of a side road and hit an oncoming vehicle on the A149 in Norfolk.  

Two women in the oncoming Kia were injured and taken to hospital, one of the women also had her nine-month-old child in the car, but he was unharmed. 

There were calls for him to stop driving after he was spotted back at the wheel just two days after the crash.
