The Queen’s love for her dogs was no secret. And it has been beautifully represented in the latest statue made in her honour. 

On Sunday 21st of April, a statue commemorating Queen Elizabeth II was unveiled in Rutland, England, on what would’ve been the late Queen’s 98th birthday.

New Queen Elizabeth II statue includes beloved Corgis

Standing at 7-feet tall, the bronze statue delighted the crowd when they discovered it also included three beautiful little Corgis.

Hywel Pratley, the statue’s designer, told the crowd: “It will make a perfect backdrop for pictures and people will be able to reach up and pat a dog or if small enough even sit on it’s back.”

Her love for Corgis lives on

Queen Elizabeth owned her first Corgi, Susan, at 18-years-old. She then went on to own over 14 generations of Corgis and Dorgis in her lifetime. Her dogs brought her a lot of peace and joy. In fact, she was the one to walk them every day until she physically wasn’t able to anymore.

At the time of her passing, she owned two Corgis, Sandy and Muick. The dogs went to live with Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, where they are living out their best lives, despite missing their beloved owner.
