The Queen Left Heartbroken As Her Beloved Dog Passes Away

Queen Elizabeth II is thought to be in mourning after it was reported one of her pet dogs has died.

Her beloved pup Vulcan, who was a cross between a corgi and a dachshund, passed away at Windsor Castle, where the Queen has been staying during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 94-year-old monarch is thought to be "upset" at the loss, which leaves her with only one dog left - Candy, who is also a dorgi.

Both the dogs featured on the cover of Vanity Fair with the Queen in 2018.

A palace insider told The Sun: "Clearly the loss of a loved pet is upsetting.

"Anyone who has owned a dog knows how said it is to lose them."

Queen Elizabeth II is a renowned dog lover, having owned a total of 30 corgis in her lifetime.

They were all descendants of her first corgi pup, Susan, who she received as an 18th birthday present.

One of her most famous corgis was Monty, who appeared in her light-hearted 2012 Olympics film with Daniel Craig, who played James Bond in the short sequence.

However, the Queen decided in 2018 to stop breeding dogs, after she reportedly worried about who would care for them if she was no longer able to herself.

There were also fears that she could trip over them, as she reportedly told a royal guest that "corgis had a terrible habit of lying in the most awkward places."

Buckingham Palace declined to comment when approached by Tyla.

The nine-year-old black cocker spaniel was a wedding present from Kate's brother, James.


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared the news on their Instagram account.

"Very sadly last weekend our dear dog, Lupo, passed away," they wrote. "He has been at the heart of our family for the past nine years and we will miss him so much."
