Now, the royal family is an important part of British culture.
The Brits are extremely proud that Queen Elizabeth is the longest-ruling monarch of the United Kingdom. Since her coronation on February 6th, 1952, she surpassed Queen Victoria's old record of sixty-three years on the throne in 2015.
Queen Elizabeth lived through the world war.

While there, Elizabeth made her first public appearance by way of radio broadcast. She famously said, "that in the end, all will be well; for God will care for us and give us victory and peace."
This was when then Princess Elizabeth first became known to the public.

She also began taking on more public duties.

But when her father died in February of 1952...

By 2nd June 1953, Queen Elizabeth had officially taken on the reigns.
via: Getty ImagesShe was crowned at Westminster Abbey at the meager age of twenty-seven. Charles was present at his mother's crowning; He was aged 4 at the time. Interestingly, Elizabeth's was the first coronation to be shown on television.
She wasn't ruling totally alone, though because Prince Philip was always by her side.

Philip wasn't an expected fit for the Queen.

But the pair continue to stand the test of time.
via: Getty ImagesSoon after their marriage, they were required to take the last name of Windsor, which caused tension between the pair. There have also been numerous public scandals, including rumors of Philip's infidelity. But to this very day, the couple remains happily married.
The pair wasted no time starting a family.

The Queen and Philip have a total of 4 children together...

Queen Elizabeth has ruled the United Kingdom with her family over the years, and over time, all of them have won over the public, including Prince Charles' father.
So hearing about his recent health concerns have been very unfortunate.

The ninety-nine-year-old has been battling several health problems over the past few years which have gotten particularly bad in the past few months.
The royal has undergone many surgeries in order to regain his health.

And in 2015, he retired from public engagements after becoming the longest-standing royal consort in British history.

Prince Charles has already taken over a lot of the royal duties since his father's retirement.

And it seems as though the news only gets worse for the family...
As, earlier this month, Prince Philip was rushed to hospital after "feeling unwell."
The Sun reported that the royal was expected to spend "a few days" there.
And that, upon his admission, he remained in "good spirits."
In a statement released by Buckingham Palace, it said this:
"His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital in London, on Tuesday evening. The Duke's admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness's Doctor, after feeling unwell."
"The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest."
It was quickly confirmed that his illness was not related to COVID.
It was then reported that he had been transferred to a different hospital, where he underwent a successful procedure on a pre-existing heart condition.
He was then returned to King Edward VII's to recuperate and continue his treatment.
And now, weeks on from the surgery, the Duke has been discharged.
New reports are claiming that Prince Philip has left the hospital and will be returning home to Windsor.
Photos have shown the royal being escorted from King Edward VII's Hospital in the back of an escort car.
