The Norfolk woman who suffered a broken wrist as a passenger in a crash with the Duke of Edinburgh's Land Rover needs surgery to fix it.
Emma Fairweather, 46, received a letter of apology from Prince Philip last week, but is yet to recover from the accident.
The mum-of-two described the news that she will need a titanium plate to repair the damage to her wrist as a 'huge setback'.
The operation will take place at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn under general anaesthetic, and Ms Fairweather has been signed off her work as a support worker until April.
Speaking to The Sunday Mirror, she said: 'This has completely knocked me. It feels the last three weeks of pain and recovery have been pointless as I now have to start all over again. It's like groundhog day.

Ms Fairweather is pursuing a personal injury claim against 97-year-old Prince Philip.
