One of the Queen’s corgis, which appeared in a short James Bond sketch for the Olympics opening ceremony, has died, Buckingham Palace has stated.
The corgi, Monty, and two other corgis played in a short film in the Olympics opening ceremony, where they greeted Daniel Craig, who was playing James Bond. The death of Monty, aged 13, who had previously been owned by the Queen Mother, means that only two corgis, Willow and Holly, remain in the palace now. Two other dogs remain however, two dorgis under the names of Candy and Vulcan.
In the film, the dogs ran down the stairs and performed rolls, and after they stood watching a helicopter take off for the Olympic stadium, which was carrying James Bond and a stunt double of the Queen.
The famous relationship between the royal family and Corgis first began when George VI bought his first one in 1933, and ever since the fascination with them has continued. The royal family also own dorgis, a dachshund-corgi cross-breed. One of these has also died recently, under the name of Cider.
The deaths of these two dogs must be very upsetting for the Queen, but we would also like to know your opinions. To share them please click “Read More & Comment”.
