Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

I just imagine my cat, Gus (who has great social skills, a muscular physique and a too-great need to "play") meeting the Corgies. OMG. Gus means well but he tends to greet other animals with a nose sniff followed by a full body take down - which he means very playfully as "Hi, I really like you!"

LOL. One on one - Gus would win but two on one - the Corgis would be king!

Has anyone ever posted this from the HMS Vanguard when Elizabeth was 21: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/li...s/your-life/#5

Nice kitty!

Try this - it will be the 4th picture. There is also a lovely top view of HM. Not to mention that the cat is spectacular!

Seems like most royals prefer dogs over cats. Dog are loyal to their masters and cats do their own thing. Royals like a pet that are loyal to them and who obeys them and gives them attention. Cats aren't really know for obeying their owners.

Yes indeed. Our cat doesn't live with us; we live with him! Also he owns us, not the other way around.

Dogs think they're human. Cats KNOW they're gods.

Here is a list of royals who own pets (to my knowledge):

- Princess Michael of Kent owns a cat
- HM owns Corgis and Dorgis
- Princess Anne owns a dog (I think it's a Staffordshire Terrier)
- Viscount and Viscountess Linley own a dog (I remember reading in the DM that it's called Shaggy)
- Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and his girlfriend Sofia Hellqvist own a puppy called Siri
- The Norwegian CP family own a dog called Mily Kako (and now 9 puppies)
- The Duchess of Cornwall owns Jack Russels called Beth and Bluebell
- The Danish CP family own a dog called Ziggy
- Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece owns a dog

Historically (again to my knowledge):

- Queen Victoria owned a King Charles Spaniel called Dash
- King George VI owned Corgis
- Princess Margaret owned a Daschund
- Henry VIII owned hunting hounds
- In a portrait of Mary I and Philip II, there is a dog with them. I think they owned one.

Do any Spanish royals and current Monegasque royals own pets?

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?

Queen Alexandra of England had pugs and spaniels, beagles and borzois, and basset hounds.
The Empress Alexandra, wife of Nicholas II of Russia, had a Scotch terrier named Eira.

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene care for Odin, a dog who was a gift to Prince Rainer from the citizens of the Principality. I am not sure what breed Odin is, but he must be advanced in age at this point. He walked in Rainier's funeral procession and last year was photographed with Charlene in the Palace gardens.

Caroline has been photographed on numerous occasions with two dachshunds. They go everywhere with her.

Andrea and Tatiana have the most adorable Boston terrier named Daphne. They treat her like a child. She was present for their civil and their Church weddings.

Stephanie is passionate about elephants and their welfare, but I am pretty sure she also has dogs.

You forgot the Dorgis!! Famously one Summer at Balmoral one of HM's Corgis and one of Princess Margaret's Dachshunds became *very* close friends and thanks to them,, the Dorgi was born!! Not sure if any of their off spring are still around or not though.

You've got to give full credit to Camilla, as both Jack Russells come from a local no kill shelter both her and Charles are Patrons of. I remember the Engagement when she ended up taking Bluebell home w/and her saying she would have some explaining to do once Charles saw her coming through the doors of Clarence House w/a new Family Member. . She certainly walks her talk in this regard and I very much admire her for that. :)
