Prince Philip's car crash victim is getting surgery.
Mom Emma Fairweather's wrist is not healing naturally and she will now go under the knife.
The Sunday Mirror newspaper has revealed that she suffered the setback following the freak accident.
Fairweather now needs a titanium plate to repair the fracture that has left her in agony.
RadarOnline.com reported how Prince Philip had written her a personal letter after the crash.
She faces an eight-week recovery period after the operation and is likely to be wearing a cast until April.
She received the injury after Prince Philip's Land Rover struck the Kia that she was traveling in outside the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England.
She revealed: "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."
Emma will be given a general anaesthetic for her operation at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn and be signed off her job as a support worker until April.
She is pursuing a personal injury claim against the British Duke.
