Corgi owners planning dog parade in honour of the Queen

In remembrance of Queen Elizabeth II, Corgi owners are organizing a procession with their dogs.

The event is slated for October 9 at the time of writing, one month and one day after the death of the Queen.

Royal admirer Agatha Crerer-Gilbert, who marches with her corgi Ruffus, stated, “To honor the life of Her Majesty, we aim to host corgi reunions at Buckingham Palace and other Royal estates, including Windsor, Sandringham, and Balmoral.”

Rest in peace; she’s joined all her corgis in heaven.

Many of those who want to attend the corgi gatherings with their beloved pets will have seen Her Majesty at the Jubilee celebration at Buckingham Palace earlier this year.

Throughout her 70-year reign, the Queen was frequently spotted in the company of her beloved corgis, since she was an animal lover.

Since she was a youngster, when her father, King George VI, brought home the family’s first corgi, a puppy named Dookie, she was notably fond of the breed.

The then-future Queen was seven years old at the time, and it is stated that she and Princess Margaret chose Pembrokeshire Welsh corgi Dookie from a litter of three because they believed his long tail would allow them to determine whether or not he was content.

Agatha stated, ‘I used to send her photographs of corgis, and she always responded that she appreciated them.’

More than 30 Welsh cattle dogs, including 14 generations of the same family, were owned by the Queen at the end.

She even devised the dorgi by accident with the assistance of Princess Margaret’s dachshund, Pipkin.

Over a decade later, on her 18th birthday, the Queen received a corgi named Susan, from which it was believed that all of her corgis derived.

Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal analyst, once told Metro.co.uk, “If she had not been the queen, [the Queen] would have been content as a countrywoman surrounded by her dogs and horses.”

Her image has been meticulously crafted over the years and includes her corgis, whom she has always adored.
