All in all, how many did she have over the years? I know she was quite young when she got Susan - her first corgi - as a present.
Looking back in this Thread, there is a lot of chat about Dogs of the past and links to articles that document that. Starting here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...tml#post297020

You're right; I guess this means that Willow will be the last corgi in the immediate RF for now.

Do you know the name of the documentary, because I don't seem to recall that? Maybe it's a documentary that I've already watched and have just forgotten about that snippet of information.

You for sure got that right. Two years ago our 13-year-old cat got cancer and his kidneys shut down, so we had to put him to sleep; I was downright distraught for quite some time, the emotional wound would just burst open out of nowhere. But now we have a new little kitten, 10-week-old Princess Zelda; she's a calico-tabby mix.

A few years ago it was reported that the Queen had stopped adding to her family of dogs. So the family are getting and going to get smaller as the years go by.

I bellieve Holly died in the last few weeks. I'm not sure how old the youngest is, but there is a good chance HM could outlive them all!

In articles posted earlier in this thread it is mentioned that the last remaining corgi is now 13

I read the article on the menu/s and had to laugh! The rascals were and are so spoilt! But they are not racehorses after all so (imagine the cost of that!) a little bit of lee way should be made here! They have (spoilt little brats that they are!) given the Queen a lot of us time so quite ok in my book!

This is a serious accusation, and for those of you who don't read the article the dog in question was a Jubilee year gift to HM. So, it is not as if the Queen bred a cheat, which we all know she would not do. Although the headline does lead one to doubts...
But the prize-winning dog will be examined to see if it is indeed a purebred, rather than a cross.
Her Majesty is, I would guess, mortified.
Sadly, it might be a great dog - but that matters not at all in competition where bloodlines are ALL. Poor beastie, it is not to blame, nor is the Queen.
My niece once asked me what purebred I wanted and I told her I wanted none. All our much loved and loving dogs were mutts. Woof.

What a life these doggies had - and what a handful they were for the poor staff -

Losing a beloved dog is right on par with losing a beloved family member and I know the pain the Queen is feeling with the loss of Willow.

Yes, and Willow was a link with the past at fifteen years old when she died. At 91 those sort of memories are precious. However, the Queen made the correct decision (IMO) to not buy any more pets and so more losses might be expected in the future as well. Rest in peace little Willow.

Do you mean her race horses or the ponies she rides at Windsor? Would Charles inherit the racehorses? I know he has little interest in racing but it might be necessary for taxation purposes. The ponies might go to grandchildren like Louise, great-grandchildren like Mia perhaps.

So sad for HM. Her corgi dogs have been an iconic part of her image and even her life from the very beginning. She will be lonely without them.

I can't imagine my own life without pets.

I meant any horses/ponies she owns....IIRC she has breeding programs going for her ponies too along with the racehorses. Perhaps she's made provisions for them to be sold if no one in the family has interest in racing.

Sad she has lost the last of her beloved corgis

But she does still have a few dorgis to keep her company I believe. Certainly we heard how Meghan has charmed the 'dogs'. But still hard to loose a beloved pet.

I agree, she made a smart decision at this point of life, not to add more.

I can see her leaving the personal ponies and such to her grandchildren who love to ride. Louise and James spend so much time with her riding, I would think she may leave them the ponies they ride.

Perhaps Anne will get the race horses, or a few? Besides polo, Charles isn't much of a horse person. Anne has definitely been the horse person in the family. And with Gatcombe she has the lands for breeding and such to continue.

I think Anne's involvement in horses have been mostly, if not all, involving eventing (same as Zara does now).

Not according to interviews Anne has done, at least in 2009 she was involved in breeding.

Quote:
The Princess regularly surveys her farm from the back of a horse. A former Olympic eventer and amateur jockey, she is now breeding from the bloodlines of her last event horse, Black Ice, and she breaks in the youngsters herself. ‘All my horses are for sale, but the difficulty is that if Zara [Phillips, world eventing champion] rides them, I can’t sell them, because people think they must be her rejects! All breeders are faced with this problem. It’s the same for The Queen. If you’re a stud owner, you’ve got to sell the good ones as well as the others in order to keep going.’
Read more at Princess Royal interview - Country Life
Princess Royal interview - Country Life

Perhaps breeding eventing horses right now, but not a stretch for her to breed racehorses as well.

Lesser known then Charles, Anne is quite the farmer as well. Gatcomb seems to have been edging towards organic, but because of horses, there are some issues. Interesting article to read about what she has done with Gatcombe over the years.


Mike owned a racehorse which he just sold (not sure if he owned 2 as there was earlier article of one being retired at Gatcombe). Zara works in promoting women owners in racehorses. She actually helped train the race horse her husband bought years ago.

I actually think Anne and Zara are far more likely to keep up the queen's passion then anyone in the family. If not, then best sell them.

Zara is also interested/involved with racing.
