Police are now investigating the cause. The neuroscience student said she had not heard from the Duke or anyone from the royal camp after the crash. Ms Fellows claims she was driving about 90kph when the Jaguar pulled out in front of her. “He shot across the road. But it was so close that if I hadn’t emergency braked I would have gone straight into the middle of his car,” she told Mail Online. “As I put on the brakes, my car span towards the central reservation and smashed into it. I clipped the curb and buckled the wheel arch of my car.“The airbags went off and there was smoke coming from the engine.”Camera IconPrince Edward’s car was ‘indirectly’ involved, according to the palace.Picture: AFPA spokesman for Buckingham Palace confirmed a royal car was ‘indirectly’ involved in the collision in Sussex. “All the relevant details have been passed to the police,” the palace confirmed.
