I don’t know much about her royal highness but I do know that she loves dogs, and that’s enough for me. Can there be any doubt:
Here she is looking really happy five years later in 1941:
I have no idea when this next photo was taken, but it is cute:
She favors a breed, which you see even in the pictures above, called a Welsh Corgi. They look like this:
Pretty cute I’d say. But maybe not as cute as the queen herself who looked like this back in 1952 when she became the queen, which event my old man says he actually remembers:
Since I love dog art, I dug around the net a bit and found that maybe the dog loving thing is in her genes:
And more recently this painting which shows Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in the early years of their marriage, and more importantly with some of their dogs:
If you’re interested in more historical royal dogs look here, where some of these images came from (thank you!).
And a painting of the young princess in 1933 at age 7, unfortunately without dogs:
Born April 21, 1926 the queen is now 86 years old. Here is a picture (from Wikipedia) taken 5 years ago:
I hate fanfare, but maybe the queen likes it. In any case, as you probably know, a huge fanfare called the Diamond Jubilee celebrating her 60 years as Queen of England is this year, and some of the big stuff is about to start right about now, including horse races and I don’t know what all, but (and I’m not sure I like this) at least one dog thing:
Seems like they could have had a Corgi or at least a Dorgi, the ‘breed’ the queen herself created as a cross between a Dachshund and a Corgi, apparently with a brick as height adjuster :).
Have a nice day, yours,
Rita the dog [ignore video add, if any, just below]
P.S. I found another dog blogger who wrote about the queen: here.
