HM the Queen is above the law., she can do no wrong. If she were to be taken to the court she would in fact be prosecuting herself, the Queen versus the Queen. She always respects the law. (Diplomats are also above the law, diplomatic immunity). There are some who are allowed to be seat belt free, those who cannot wear a belt due to illness or pregnancy but have to have a 'Doctors note'. I'm sure that if the Duke is at fault he will face the same as any other person would, as Princess Anne did when her dog bit a youngster in the early 90's. The Duke failed to ewear his seat belt in his new Rover,was he on a public road or private property at the time? we are not told, or did he injure himself during his accident.? It doesn't matter what the facts are, they need to sell papers.
As for the police officer taking the breathalyzer from the Prince, he was carrying out normal procedure and had he failed he would be done for it. The other driver was also breathalysed. For the officer it was normal practise.
