Heartwarming Vintage Photos Of Queen Elizabeth II And Her Royal Corgis

Royal Corgis

Queen Elizabeth II and her Corgis are the perfect dynamic duo.
They go together even better than peanut butter and jelly, and it
has been that way her whole life. She grew up with Corgis always by
her side, and she didn’t hesitate to keep them in her life as she
got older.

Many of Queen Elizabeth II’s vintage photos are of her
surrounded by cute little dogs! In fact, she’s had over 30 Corgis
during her time as queen. It’s the type of legacy that all
royalty should strive to follow.

Sadly, the Queen’s last Corgi named Willow passed away in
2018. This occurred after her decision to stop breeding Corgis in
2015. Her reasoning was that she didn’t want to pass away while
her dogs were still alive. After all, the pups would likely be
heartbroken.

life over the years? Here are 13 vintage photos showing a younger

mother to many of Queen Elizabeth II’s other Corgis, which is why
the Queen often had multiple dogs at a time.�

– Back in the day, Queen Elizabeth II without her Corgis would be
like a dog without their favorite toy. They were always
together.

– And it’s all because she got the opportunity to grow up
beside these amazing little dogs.

It’s sad that the reign of Corgis is coming to an end, but
this isn’t the last we’ll see of royal dogs. Many other dogs
have been a part of the royal family, including
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s black Lab
. Dogs make our
lives whole, and clearly, Queen Elizabeth II knows that better than
anyone.
