• Queen Elizabeth II having a rough week due to the Sussexes' announcement and Prince Philip's health issues
  • The members of the royal family are checking in on the Queen
  • Her Majesty also spoke with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle through FaceTime

Queen Elizabeth II is counting on the members of the royal family while her husband Prince Philip is in the hospital.

The Duke of Edinburgh, 99, is still in the hospital after he was admitted there as a precautionary measure. Her Majesty is dealing with the matter by "leaning on her loved ones for support," a source said referring to the senior members of the royal family.

"It’s a lot to take on. But as usual, Elizabeth is handling the stress and sadness with great dignity," the insider told Us Weekly. "Prince William, Duchess Kate, Duchess Camilla and Prince Charles and Princess Beatrice are rallying around Elizabeth, even Princess Eugenie who has just given birth is checking in. Prince Charles, in particular, is making a real effort to step up. Elizabeth is the first to admit that he has been her pillar of strength."

The Queen was allegedly having a hard time in the past week. Prince Philip's health issue happened the same week as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's announcement that they would not be returning to their royal duties.

"It’s been a rough few weeks for the queen, that’s for sure. The situation with Harry and Meghan has been challenging, and on top of that, she’s distraught over her beloved husband’s health setback," the source said.

Queen Elizabeth II also spoke with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their son, Archie, through FaceTime. However, the calls were not enough because she was "desperate to give Archive a huge hug," the source added. The Queen's relationship with the Sussexes is "strained" and she wanted Prince Harry to return home as soon as possible to discuss things and see his grandfather, the tipster noted.

In related news, many were concerned when they learned about Prince Philip's hospitalization because the phrase "rest in peace" was also trending on Twitter at the time.

"Rest in Peace and Dying trending had me thinking something happend to Prince Philip," @Crysss_x wrote.

"I saw Rest In Peace trending, the first thing I thought is has Prince Philip died?" another netizen added.
