Princess Anne fired back at a reporter who inquired about her father Prince Philip's condition following a car accident (see below for the video).

"How is the Duke of Edinburgh this morning?" the journalist asked on Friday, January 18, while the princess, 68, arrived at an event.

"I've no idea", Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II's only daughter replied. "You know where I am? Same place as you."

Upon her exit, Anne told curious reporters she had not received an update on her father "since I've been in there."

The semi-sassy moments were captured on video by a royal reporter who shared the exchanges on Twitter.

The Duke of Edinburgh was told he has "no injuries of concern" after undergoing a precautionary hospital check-up following the crash.

Philip visited a local hospital on doctor's advice after the collision, which left two people needing hospital treatment and is being investigated by Norfolk Constabulary.

The duke has also made contact with the driver and passenger of the other car, who were injured, and "best wishes" have been exchanged.

Philip, 97, walked away unhurt from the accident after the Land Rover Freelander he was driving rolled across a busy A-road following a collision with a Kia, close to the Queen's Sandringham estate on Thursday.

A Palace spokeswoman said: "On doctor's advice, the Duke of Edinburgh visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn this morning for a precautionary check-up.

"This confirmed His Royal Highness had no injuries of concern. The duke has returned to Sandringham."

The Palace spokeswoman added: "Contact has been made privately with the occupants in the other car and well-wishes exchanged."

A nine-month-old baby boy also survived unhurt in the Kia, police said.
