The Queen's last corgi dies at Windsor Castle

Still Waters

The Queen has been left heartbroken after the death of her last corgi. Willow, who was almost 15, was put to sleep at Windsor Castle on Sunday.

The dog had a cancer-related illness and the Queen did not want her beloved pet to suffer further. The death brings to an end a remarkable history between the Queen and corgis dating back more than eight decades.

Willow was the 14th generation descended from Susan, a gift to the then Princess Elizabeth on her 18th birthday. But her heritage dates back even further, to 1933, when the Queen’s father George VI (then Duke of York) introduced a corgi, Dookie, into the Royal Family.

One of her children needs to get her another (a well behaved older adult).

Sorry to hear about the dog, but.... being the Sovereign of the British Empire, Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces, and Lord High Admiral of the Royal Navy (including the nuclear missile submarines) is ONE thing.

Being made a UM moderator, on the other hand - even an honorary one - would give her WAY too much power !

imagine if HM did become a moderator would that mean she'd have to be addressed as 'your majesty i will behave next time'

"you better or else you're off to the tower next time..." ;)

Prince Philip is the Lord High Admiral.
