Yesterday, Queen Elizabeth’s dresser revealed that the Queen is swapping out fur for faux fur. In her new book, ‘The Other Side of the Coin: The Queen, the Dresser and the Wardrobe’, Angela Kelly writes:
“If Her Majesty is due to attend an engagement in particularly cold weather, from 2019 onwards fake fur will be used to make sure she stays warm.”
Animal rights advocates — and foxes everywhere — rejoiced.
And now we hear that Buckingham Palace is putting on a special exhibition dedicated to royal animals. The Queen’s love of dogs and horses is well documented. In fact, she has owned more than 30 corgis, many of them direct descendants of her first one, Susan – given to her as an 18th birthday present by her parents in 1944.
For the Royal collection, there are tons of photos of her corgis and horses, plus a history of the Royal animals throughout history. (Did you know that for a short time they owned a giraffe?)
Now enjoy this short video of the palace ‘corgi whisperer’ showing how Queen Elizabeth II’s dogs are trained.
