More than 70 Corgis gather at Balmoral for Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
More than 70 corgis have gathered on the lawn at Balmoral Castle as part of celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The dogs, the Queen’s favorite breed, enjoyed a walk in the royal estate with their owners before posing for photos on the grounds.
The event in Aberdeenshire, organized by the Corgi Society of Scotland and the UK Corgi Club, brought together dozens of Cardigan Welsh and Pembroke Welsh corgis.
The Queen had more than 30 Corgis and Dorgis – a cross between a corgi and a dachshund – under her control, most of whom were descended from her first corgi, Susan, who became her gift on her 18th birthday in 1944.
Hilary Greensill, a member of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Association, said there was a “fantastic” atmosphere at the event on Saturday afternoon.
She said: “We’ve been to Balmoral before and since it was the Platinum Anniversary Year, the estate approached us and suggested we would like to return in the summer.
“It’s a really nice opportunity to show the breeds and how much fun they are and help celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with dogs that the Queen loves.”
She added: “It has been fantastic, very very cheerful and noisy, a lot of barking and a lot of fun.
“We had the most wonderful day and the sun was shining down and that made everyone really happy.”
