No More Corgis For Queen Elizabeth
Corgis have gained worldwide popularity thanks to Queen Elizabeth II who has owned at least one of the breed for most of her life. Sadly, all things must come to an end and the Queen will no longer adopt Corgis.
At age 88, the Queen is rightfully worried that the dogs could be a serious trip-and-fall hazard. Since she is a monarch and has responsibilities toward her subjects, the Queen needs to put her health above all other things, her beloved dogs included.
A senior courtier confirmed the sad news to the Daily Express.
“Her main fear is that if she fell and broke her arm or even a leg she would not be able to perform her duties for many weeks if not months, and that would upset her greatly.”
Although she is approaching 90, the famous monarch is still pretty much active, attending numerous events each year, riding horses and going for long walks. However, she is aware of her age and her duty comes first.
She still owns two older Corgis, Willow and Holly, who are not as fast as young dogs. Their slow speed matches her own and they will remain at Buckingham Palace.
Queen Elizabeth has had more than 30 Corgis throughout her life, beginning when her father brought one home from a local kennel in 1933. The majority of her Corgis were descendants from a Pembroke Corgi named Susan, an 18th birthday present.
