Royal pets: the beloved dogs Meghan Markle, Duchess Camilla and the Queen share their homes with
The Queen has long been known for her love of dogs, and has owned more than 30 corgis during her reign. It is a passion she shares with many other members of the royal family, including her grandsons and their wives – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
HELLO! takes a look at the furry friends the British and their European counterparts share their homes with.
The Queen‘s corgis have been keeping the monarch in good, canine company for decades. She was given her first corgi Susan when she was 18, and even took the beloved pet on her honeymoon with Prince Philip.
The mother-of-four is never far from her dogs, who she has famously called her “family” in the past. The pampered pooches have travelled with her on tour, and were given pride of place in one of Her Majesty’s official 90th birthday portraits.
The Queen’s last corgi – named Whisper – passed away in October 2018 and sadly, the monarch recently mourned the loss of one of her corgi-dachshunds Vulcan.
Her Majesty has now one pet dog left, Candy, who is also a cross between a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and a dachshund.
