The Queen and her corgis

Queen Elizabeth has had a life-long love for corgis and this collection of images show her furry family through the ages.

Rarely without her beloved animals, Queen Elizabeth is one of the only known world leaders to be so widely identified with a particular breed, and she has been heard to say “My corgis are my family,” according to Vanity Fair.

Queen Elizabeth’s love of Corgis began in 1933 when her father brought her home a pup named Dookie.

Shortly after that she began breeding them herself, a practice she has only recently given up as she does not wish to leave any young dogs behind to grieve her when she dies.

These images highlight her lifelong passion.
