Actually, if you reread my post you'll see that I mentioned HM's Dorgis :

I remember seeing dogs in the video of William and Harry as children visiting Juan Carlos, Sofia and Felipe but wasn't sure if they still had pets. To answer my own question: Princess Caroline owns dachshunds (?) and Andrea Casiraghi owns a dog, I remember seeing it at his and Tatiana's wedding.

Sorry about that. That's what I get for reading that while dealing w/having to run to the bathroom constantly the other night. They say sharing is good, but Mom could have kept this blasted thing!!

I found out the names of HM's Corgis and Dorgis: Holly, Willow, Candy and Vulcan. It was one of the most asked questions by the British public and was answered on the BRF's official website.

That's OK - it's an easy mistake to make, I've done that before when in a rush.

An Ard Ri and Sarahbellar, thanks for sharing the photos of the Monegasque, Spanish and Swedish royal pets. I didn't realize Grace had pets, and the names of the Swedish dogs are adorable - I particularly like Bingo, Siri and Charlie.

Charlie was originally named Ali but the King had to change it because of the of some political situation at the time. He was a wedding present from Queen Silvia.

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.

Yes, Svensk Damtidning told in September, that king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia had been looking for another dog for some time. They have had the 12-year old Slovensky kopov/Slovakian hound Zila.
In the beginning of September they finally got a new dog. Brandie, a Bavarian mountain scenthound, was born on 6th June, the national day of Sweden.

This is a quite interesting thread as I have heard very rarely about royals and cats...?! Royals have always been very much into dogs (which I sympathize with, indeed!)!

Yes, that's what I had written expect worded differently. I have seen a few portraits of Mary I, but I don't think I have seen multiple ones of her with her Italian Greyhounds. The only one I've seen is the mentioned one of her and Philip II, but I could be missing something here.

I remember reading a while ago that Princess Michael's cat had gone missing, and that she had asked her neighbours at Kensington Palace if they had seen it. From what I remember, I do believe the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge helped her look for her cat, but IIRC their search wasn't successful. I wonder if Princess Michael has her cat back now.

If it was the 2012 cat-disappearance
Princess Michael of Kent's Cat Has Been Found

But indeed there still seem to be few royal cats about

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?
