LONDON : Queen Elizabeth's  97-year-old husband Prince Philip received a warning from police after he was photographed apparently driving without a seat belt, just two days after he was involved in a crash while at the wheel.

Newspapers showed picture of Philip driving a replacement Land Rover on Saturday at the  royals  Sandringham  residence in Norfolk. He did not appear to be using a seat belt while traveling on a public road.

''We are aware of the photographs,'' a police spokesman said. ''Suitable words of advice have been given to the driver and this is in line with our standard response when being made aware of our receiving such images showing this type of offence.''

On Thursday, Philip escaped without injury when his car flipped over following a crash with another vehicle close to Sandringham .

Philip was unhurt, although shaken in the crash. The other driver, a 28-year-old woman, suffered cuts to her knee and a 45-year-old woman passenger in the car, which also had a nine-month  old baby on board, sustained a broken wrist.

They were taken to hospital but later released. [Reuters].
