Scroll down below to read the full story…
The British are extremely proud that Queen Elizabeth is the longest-ruling monarch of the United Kingdom.
In 2015, Elizabeth has surpassed Queen Victoria’s previous record of sixty-three years on the throne since her coronation in 1952.
As a young woman she began performing her public duties….
Elizabeth made her first public appearance inspecting troops after her father appointed her colonel-in-chief of the Grenadier Guards.
However once her father passed in February 1952…
Elizabeth automatically became the Queen of England, as she was the King’s first-born.
In 1953, Queen Elizabeth officially took over on the 2nd June.
At the age of 27, Elizabeth was crowned at Westminster Abbe which was the first coronation to be televised.
Prince Philip always ruled by her side.
On the 20th November 1947, Elizabeth married Phillip Mountbatten after the pair had met when they were only thirteen.
Philip didn’t appear to be an ideal fit for the Queen.
Mainly because Philip’s held a mixed reputation in high society while Queen Elizabeth was known for being more reserved and thoughtful.
However they continue to stand the test of time.
Shortly following their wedding they took the last name of Windsor, which caused tension between the pair.
They didn’t waste any time starting their own family.
Charles, was born in 1948, followed by their daughter Anne, who was born in 1950.
They have a total of 4 children altogether…
Queen Elizabeth and her family has won over the public throughout the years.
Things haven’t always been east for the couple.
The Duke has battled with several health problems over the last few years which have become progressively worse over the last few months.
In order to regain his health Philip has underwent many surgeries.
Prince Philip recovered from exploratory abdominal surgery after having previously dealt with a blocked coronary artery and a bladder infection.
Philip retired from public engagements in 2015, after becoming the longest-standing royal consort in British history.
Shortly after, he had a hip replacement and has been on a rocky path since.
Prince Charles has taken many royal duties since his father’s retirement.
In 2015 Prince Charles took on a heavier responsibility.
It appears news just gets worse for the family…
Prince Philip was rushed to hospital once he started to feel unwell.
He was expected to spend a number of days in there
However he appeared to be in “good spirits” following his admission.
A statement released by Buckingham Palace, said the follwoing:
“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.“
It continued to say:
“The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest.”
His illness was not related to COVID.
He was transferred to a different hospital, where he underwent a heart procedure on an existing condition.
Following the surgery he was brought to King Edward VII’s to recover.
Eventually the Duke was discharged.
Prince Philip was able to return home to Windsor.
Philip was pictured leaving King Edward VII’s Hospital in the back of an escort car.
Details surrounding his health continue to remain unclear.
Just as drama begins to settled down…
Reports of a “suspicious package” flood in from the Queen’s residence in Edinburgh, Scotland.
On 23rd March, Police Scotland were called to the grounds of the Palace of Holyroodhouse at about 8.50 pm.
An Explosive Ordnance Disposal team examined the “suspicious item” before making it safe to return.
It appears a man in his late thirties was arrested in connection with the incident…
However his identity has not been revealed.
Things have certainly been turbulent for the Queen as of late..
Thousands are sending their condolences to Her Majesty once they realised her heartbreak.
On 30th March 2002, The Queen Mother, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, sadly passed away.
