In honor of Prince Philip‘s 98th birthday, the royal family is in celebration mode. “Wishing His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh a very Happy 98th Birthday today! #HappyBirthdayHRH,” their social media accounts posted on both Instagram and Twitter.

Philip became a member of the British royal family upon marrying lifelong love, Queen Elizabeth, in November 1947. He was actually born the Prince of Greece, but Philip and his family were sadly exiled from the country when he was an infant. Philip has lived quite the life since then, but there’s a lot that fans don’t know when it comes to his younger years.
