Nobody — nobody — loved corgis like Queen Elizabeth.
The late Queen Elizabeth II was a woman beloved for many things, but perhaps one of the most heartwarming reasons was her lifelong love of corgis — which is soon to be celebrated at 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 passionate support of charitable causes and national institutions,” the Wallace Collection shared about the event on its website. “She is also recognised for the famously 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 different corgis throughout her life, including photos with her first dogs, Jane and Dookie, taken in 1936. There’s also a photo of a young Queen Elizabeth holding her famed corgi Susan at Windsor Castle in 1944, who is also the mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and so on of subsequent generations of royal corgis.
Time Out added, there is another photograph of the Queen “flanked by a pack” of corgis as they stroll through the grounds of Balmoral in the 1960s.
Fortunately for dog lovers, the exhibit honoring the queen isn’t the only pup-centric event happening at The Wallace.
Between March 29 to October 15, the museum will also be displaying “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 did, maybe wait until late March to plan your visit for this 2-for-1 occasion.
