My daughter is going to give a presentation about "Royal Dogs" and she is just looking for one missing Information...

About how many dogs do live in the Royal Kennels of Queen Elizabeth II. today? She only found out, that there lived about 100 dogs during the times of Edward VII.

Can anyone help please? Thank you in advance!

Did Prince (now King) Philippe of the Belgians own a dog when he became engaged to Mathilde?

Svensk Damtidning tells, that king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia have been looking for another dog for some time now. They have already 12-year old Slovensky kopov/Slovakian hound Zila.
Now they finally got a new dog three weeks ago. Brandie, a Bavarian mountain scenthound, was born on 6th June, the national day of Sweden.

King Edward VII of England's fox terrier Caesar bore on his collar the legend, 'I belong to the King'. Edward allowed him to sleep in an easy chair by his bed.

In the early years of their marriage Philippe and Mathilde had a dog named "Kinga" who lived with them at Laeken. I am not clear on whether Kinga was originally Philippe's pet ,or if he was acquired by the Royal couple after they married.

Afaik Kinga was a small puppy when then Princess Mathilde was pregnant with her oldest child (there are some articles on the internet about how they were a little concerned how the pup would deal with the new baby), but they might have had another dog before that, possibly Laika?

eta: they indeed had a dog named Laika, but unfortunately that strangled itself with it's leash when Philippe and Mathilde were on holiday...
(they got him together, i think that was the original question)

In the recent video's of the family they have a dog too, but it's only a "dog-sitting". But the kids looks very attached to the dog, so maybe they'll consider having another one?

Google Translate can't pick up the URL to translate to english, but basically, when the princely couple were on christmas vacation in 2000/2001, Laika stayed at home (where obviously there was staf to look after the dog; you can also find articles on internet which imply that Philippe and Mathilde just abandoned him, but that's not the case).
One of the staff members had tied the dog's leash to a doorknob for a only short while, and Laika got tangled up in the leash and unfortunately chocked...
