Pictures of the burial plots of the Queen’s beloved pet dogs have been made available to the public for the first time.
While Elizabeth II’s love of dogs is well known, she is rarely seen with her faithful companions, usually leaving them at home as she carried out her many official engagements.
Now, the public have been given a small glimpse into the monarch’s relationships with her pets, with the Daily Mail publishing pictures of a little-known plot in a quiet corner of the Sandringham estate where royal pets from across the generations are buried.
As well as corgis, the plot is also the final resting place of Labradors and spaniels, with the newspaper noting that the corner also host the burial places of dogs that belonged to Prince Philip.
At the same time, however, the Kennel Club is warning that the Pembroke Corgi so loved by the Queen is facing extinction due to its waning popularity.
