A collection of mesmerising images of canines with their royal families
Her Majesty The Queen is among the world’s leading breeders of Pembroke corgis. The first royal Corgis, Dookie and Jane, were bought for the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret Rose by their parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
Some of the photographs in this book even reveal the deep devotion shared by generations of dogs and their royal owners. Queen Victoria’s Spaniel, Dash, was buried at Windsor with an epitaph that read: His attachment was without selfishness, His playfulness without malice, His fidelity without deceit. READER, if you would live beloved and die regretted, profit by the example of DASH.
Interestingly, most of these photographs come from private family albums and have never been published before. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were patrons and collectors of photography, and several members of the royal family were gifted amateur photographers.
