A look at the Queen's well-known love of Corgis

The love that the late Queen Elizabeth II had for her Corgis was well known.The British monarch owned more than 30 of them over the years.In 1936, when she was 10-years-old, the then princess was photographed holding one of the dogs, her sister Margaret by her side.For her 18th birthday, she was gifted a Corgi named Susan.And a drone light display in the shape of a Corgi lit up the skies over Buckingham Palace in June as the country celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.Royal historian Robert Lacey says Corgis became a trademark of the queen and a symbol of her love of animals.It's believed the Queen had four dogs at the time of her death: two Corgis, a Dorgi (a cross between a Corgi and a Dachshund) and a Cocker Spaniel.Lacey says it comes as no surprise that people are wondering whether her faithful four-legged companions will play a part in her funeral.The Corgi breed was introduced to the royal family by the Queen's father, King George VI, in 1933, when he bought a male Corgi called Dookie from a local kennel.
