The Queen (95) celebrated her Platinum Jubilee anniversary over the weekend. She has been ruling the British throne for a proud 70 years. Of course, she will celebrate this special event throughout the year.

Queen Elizabeth II: A sweet moment

Queen Elizabeth II recently held a press event where she looked at some greeting cards made by children. Pictures from this appointment have now been published – and one picture, in particular, makes us smile. The sweet image is of Queen Elizabeth II with her corgi puppy Candy. 

Queen Elizabeth II with her dog Candy

Candy is said to have trotted into the room during the press conference. The dog was probably longing for her owner, and the Queen was not deterred by this – it was quite on the contrary. The monarch simply made the dog the star of the show! "And where did you come from? I know what you want," the Queen said to her pooch according to Harpers Bazaar

Then there was a pat for Candy, who certainly enjoyed all the attention. The Corgi didn't let the reporters shake her demeanor – although they had to undergo a sniffing test by Candy first. This animal appearance was not only very funny but also extremely appropriate. After all, corgis have accompanied the Queen throughout her reign.

The Queen has always been a fan of Corgi dogs

Queen Elizabeth II inherited her enthusiasm for dogs from her family. For a long time, she bred dogs of the Corgi breed. In the meantime, the monarch only has a few four-legged friends. Candy is a corgi and dachshund mix. In addition to her, the Queen also has two purebred corgis. She also recently got a new puppy which surprisingly belongs to the Cocker Spaniel breed.

The newcomer goes by the name of Lissy and has not yet made a public appearance. In addition to dogs, the Queen also owns horses that regularly take part in tournaments.

Queen Elizabeth II is a true animal lover and also likes to walk her four-legged friends herself. Fans will remain curious to see if her dogs will be able to celebrate more appearances during her Platinum Jubilee celebrations. There will be a few more months of celebrations in honor of the Queen!
