Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-serving monarch, is celebrated for her exceptional commitment to public duty and passionate support of charitable causes and national institutions. She is also recognised for the famously close association she developed with Pembroke Welsh corgis, a fearless breed of herding dog, owning over thirty of them throughout her reign.
Coinciding with Portraits of Dogs: From Gainsborough to Hockney (29 March–15 October 2023), our major exhibition exploring the unique relationship between dogs and humans, this special one-room display celebrated through photographs the unique connection The Queen had with corgis throughout her life.
