In addition to their Christmas commitments, Princes William and Harry made time to visit their grandfather, Prince Philip, in the hospital on Christmas Day, according to the BBC.

And they weren't the only royals in attendance at Papworth Hospital Sunday afternoon.

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and a few other members of the royal family also visited the 90-year-old royal, who underwent emergency surgery for a blocked coronary artery Friday, after suffering from chest pains.

In spite of the surgery, however, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said Prince Philip was in "good" spirits and will continue to remain under observation.  

Prior to visiting the Duke of Edinburgh, the royal family said prayers for Philip's speedy recovery at their traditional Christmas Day church service at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham.

And after greeting well wishers outside of the service, the royals reportedly had a traditional turkey lunch and watched the Queen's speech, according to People, which was centered on the strength of family and community.

"We've seen that it's in hardship that we often find strength from our families; it's in adversity that new friendships are sometimes formed; and it's in a crisis that communities break down barriers and bind together to help one another," the Queen said during her annual Christmas Day broadcast. "Families, friends and communities often find a source of courage rising up from within."

Prince Philip discharge date from the hospital has not been set, but we wish him a speedy recovery.
