No one – no one – loved corgis like Queen Elizabeth.
The late Queen Elizabeth II was a beloved woman for many things, but perhaps one of the most heartwarming reasons was her lifelong love of corgis – soon to be celebrated in a London museum.
In an exhibit at the Wallace Collection, aptly titled, The Queen and Her Corgis, will open to the public on March 8.
“Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-serving monarch, is celebrated for her exceptional commitment to public duty and her passionate support of charitable causes and national institutions,” the Wallace Collection said of the event. on its website. “She is also recognized for the close association she developed with Pembroke Welsh corgis, a fearless breed of herding dog, owning over thirty of them throughout her reign.”
According to Time Out London, the exhibit includes photographs of the Queen with her various corgis throughout her life, including photos with her first dogs, Jane and Dookie, taken in 1936. There is also a photo of a young Queen Elizabeth holding his famous corgi Susan at Windsor Castle in 1944, who is also mother, grandmother, great-grandmother etc. subsequent generations of royal corgis.
Free time Added, there’s another photo of the Queen “flanked by a pack” of corgis as they stroll through Balmoral Gardens in the 1960s.
Luckily for dog lovers, the show honoring the Queen isn’t the only pup-centric event taking place at The Wallace.
Between March 29 and October 15, the museum will also present “Portraits of Dogs: From Gainsborough to Hockney”, an exhibition “exploring the unique relationship between dogs and humans”, so if you really, really love dogs like the queen, maybe wait until the end of March to plan your visit for this 2-for-1 occasion.
