An elderly woman who was hit by a police motorbike escorting the Duchess of Edinburgh has died.
Helen Holland, 81, was struck on West Cromwell Road and Warwick Road in Earl’s Court, London, on May 10.
Two weeks on, the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has confirmed that she has died after sustaining serious injuries.
The incident is being investigated by the IOPC, and the body said on May 19 it was appealing for witnesses in addition to examining CCTV footage from the area.
It is also reviewing body worn video footage from police officers at the scene, and a forensic investigation of the scene was conducted.
IOPC regional director Amanda Rowe said on May 19: “Our thoughts are with the woman, who has sustained life-threatening injuries, and her family.
“We have been in touch with them to explain our role and will keep them regularly updated as the investigation progresses.”
Ms Holland’s son, Martin, told the BBC she died after sustaining “multiple broken bones and massive internal injuries”.
He said she fought “for her life for nearly two weeks… but irreversible damage to her brain finally ended the battle today”.
Mr Holland said his mother was using the “safe route of [a] pedestrian crossing” when she was struck by the motorcycle.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “The Duchess of Edinburgh is deeply saddened to hear that Helen Holland has passed away.
“Her Royal Highness’s deepest condolences and sympathies go to all of Ms Holland’s family.”
