With the recent birth of a future king, the eyes of the world have turned on the British Monarchy. With 3 future kings ready and waiting, people are beginning to wonder: How much change is ahead? In recent months, the senior royals have had their fair share of health issues. Queen Elizabeth was hospitalized for the first time in years with a bout of gastroenteritis; Prince Philip has been in and out of hospital in the recent years with heart problems and a recurring bladder infection, causing him to miss several key royal events, most notably at the Diamond Jubilee concert last June and The Duke of Kent suffered a stroke this past spring but eventually made a recovery in time to escort his cousin to Trooping the Colour.
