An 83-year-old woman has been severely injured and hospitalised following an accident involving Prince William and Kate Middleton’s convoy in London.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on their way to Windsor from London on Monday when the incident took place, PEOPLE reports.
Prince William and Kate were in a Range Rover with four motorcycle outriders and two other cars as they headed to Windsor for a Knights of the Garter ceremony.
According to witnesses, the police motorbike who was a part of Prince William and Kate’s convoy was on the wrong side of the road as it was attempting to clear traffic in front of royal motorcade when it hit Irene Mayor – an elderly woman, FOX News reports.
The elderly widow identified as Irene Mayor was thrown into the air by the impact and landed awkwardly. She was immediately rushed to the hospital by air ambulance and on Tuesday night doctors said she was in a serious but stable condition with a broken pelvis and other injuries, Sun UK reports. The duke and duchess were only told of the accident once they arrived at Windsor. They sent the woman flowers and have asked the elderly woman’s daughter, Fiona, if they could visit her in hospital. One of Irene’s friends, Lionel Blackburn (78), said he was devastated to hear she’d been hit by a police bike. In a fast-moving market, choose a stable broker. Losses can exceed your initial deposit.
