Queen Elizabeth II

The first corgis appeared in the royal family, thanks to Elizabeth’s father, George VI. Puppies subdued the future monarch so much that throughout her life she preferred only this breed. Pets accompanied Her Majesty during trips and even at official events. Faithful companions of the queen were next to her on the day of the funeral.

In the footage from the farewell ceremony, you can see two favorites of Elizabeth II. The dogs looked extremely sad. They will never see the hostess again, who passed away on 8 September. According to media reports, the second son of the Queen, Prince Andrew, along with his wife, will take the pets.

By the way, Elizabeth II’s corgis are the descendants of her favorite Susie. The dog was presented to the monarch in honor of coming of age. The hostess was not separated from her even during the honeymoon period. In total, according to journalists’ calculations, the queen had more than 30 pets of the Corgi breed in her entire life.

You have always been able to see the best in people, we are deeply indebted to you and will always follow your example,” said King Charles III.
