When it comes to Queen Elizabeth II and symbols of the palace, there is something to be said about the Queen’s Corgis and their place in royal life. And as we look back at the late monarch’s reign, for us it is truly about her dogs and their place in her life and the palace.
Over the course of her long life, the Queen’s dogs were often at her side. From official palace events to photos capturing her time on the throne, the royal Corgis are as much a part of history as Queen Elizabeth II herself.
But how were the royal Corgis treated while living in the palace?
Queen Elizabeth’s Corgis were treated like royalty
According to The New York Post, a 2013 book about royal pets went into detail about the life that the palace dogs lived. And perhaps it comes as no surprise to learn that,
"the dogs were served dinner at 5 p.m. every night, dining on chef-made meals, such as filet steak and chicken breast, that were fit for a king or queen. The queen reportedly fed the dogs herself on occasion."
It has long been said that the Queen enjoyed taking her dogs out for walks when she was able to and she would feed them when she could. Plus, there are signs that when she was overwhelmed she would reach down to the Corgis, which could often be found at her feet and under the table, to feed them a treat.
When it comes to the Queen’s Corgis, it is clear that they were not just well cared for, but were truly members of the family. And we can’t imagine any other animals being treated nearly as well now that Queen Elizabeth has passed away.
We can only hope that the Queen’s remaining pups get to enjoy the rest of their lives in a manner similar to what they have had at her side.
