I THINK it's the right decision not going to prosecute Prince Phillip.

At 97, what sentence could they have given him?

He was wise to voluntarily ban himself from driving by handing in his licence.

On saying this, he should probably have given up his licence sooner. I think the problem was who would tell the second-only-to-the-Queen-in-seniority that his driving was not up to standard? The answer was no one and it was probably something the Queen just let him get on with.

He is remarkably fit for a man of 97 and has only just given up his royal duties but I expect his family and friends gave a sigh of relief that he will no longer be driving on public roads.
