"After careful consideration, The Duke of Edinburgh has taken the decision to voluntarily surrender his driving licence", a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace told ET on Saturday, just over three weeks after the 97-year-old royal was involved in a auto crash.
It comes after the 97-year-old was involved in a vehicle crash near the Sandringham Estate, where his Land Rover rolled onto its side after colliding with a Ford Kia.
"We review each file carefully before a decision is made and will take this development into account".
"After careful consideration the Duke of Edinburgh has taken the decision to voluntarily surrender his driving licence, " the statement said.
Norfolk Police said in a statement on Saturday the investigation file on the collision "has been passed to the Crown Prosecution Service for their consideration".

He escaped injury, but Emma Fairweather, a passenger in the Kia, broke her wrist.
Elder UK royal Prince Philip, the husband of the nation's longest-reigning monarch, has turned in his vehicle keys at the age of 97, according to reports.
Buckingham Palace calculated he had completed 22,219 solo engagements since 1952.
He also wished her a "speedy recovery" from what he described as a "very distressing experience".
On Saturday, she told the Sunday Mirror: "Undoubtedly the roads will be safer now".
His Land Rover overturned but he was not injured.
A spokeswoman for Norfolk Constabulary told CNN that police had seen the photographs and "suitable words of advice have been given to the driver". Two women in the other auto were injured, though not seriously, and a nine-month-old baby boy was unhurt.
"The sun was shining low over the main road".
Two days later he was pictured driving without a seatbelt, prompting criticism. "I was pleasantly surprised because of the personalised nature", she said, adding, "He's tried to give an explanation so I appreciate that, whether I agree with it or not".
