The woman injured in a car crash with Prince Philip last month revealed she now has to undergo surgery for her broken wrist.
Emma Fairweather, a single mom of two, says she has to get a titanium plate to repair her fracture.
"This has completely knocked me," Fairweather, 46, lamented to The Mirror on Saturday.
"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. I want him to know the full effect this is having on my life. I've never had surgery before and I'll have this titanium plate for life."
Last month, Fairweather fumed that Philip, 97, and the Palace never offered her an apology.
"I was just advised not to speak to anyone and told to expect a call from the Palace yesterday," she recalled. "I know the Queen is a busy lady but I was really excited at the idea she might phone me. Instead, I got a call from a police family liaison officer. The message he passed on didn't even make sense. He said, 'The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh would like to be remembered to you.' That's not an apology or even a well-wish ... The police haven't given me any emotional support either."
