My daughter owns a corgi which she bred. They are sturdy, fun little dogs. I thought the Queen had indicated she was past getting new dogs so I guess at least someone thought otherwise. Hopefully she has years of happiness with them.
Well my sister and I say that all the time...even as we drive to pick up a new pup!
And besides the poor woman's world has been ripped to shreds in the last 12 months.....she deserves some puppy love.

I'm sure someone will take care of the Corgis is necessary. My mom who is a senior and suffers from chronic pain (for half her life now ) lost her cat after 17yrs and we insisted when she was ready to get a kitten to go for it. We promised one of us would adopt him if it came to that. She is sooooo much happier having her little Siamese and he adores her - it really changed her mental health and perhaps even added years to her life

I remember hearing the Queen wasn't going to get anymore dogs (I assumed due to her age and dogs outliving her) but what can be better for someone than the unconditional love of a pet.

Yes, the Queen is old but she seems to be in better health than her husband (knock on wood), so it's entirely possible he passes away before her and if that happens, she wouldn't be completely alone (yes, she's got her family, too, but they're not always around).

Her life has changed enormously, just like everyone's. The puppies are probably great for her! I would have recommended a Havanese.......but then she did not ask me.

If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.

Yes! I have two Havanese dogs and love them! They're known as Velcro dogs, always following me and loves to be cuddled. The Queen has always had "dorgis", a cross between dashaund and corgi. I can't imagine her without dogs

I can't believe you have two! Best thing ever. I truly think we should let the Queen know :)

Years ago when I thought about getting a dog (I have two :cat:) I considered a Havanese. Cute and small which is just what one needs for apartment living.

She should recover by then, but who knows what she'll be up to. I don't think C-P and Sofia will be able to cover this one, as Sofia is due to give birth very very soon.

But they can always have Princess Estelle do it ;)

Kate's children made cards for "granny DianA"

How long has this been going on? I find this sort of creepy esp considering how young the children are.

I find it creepy at any age. I miss my grandfather, but I can't imagine my younger siblings who were born years after he died writing anything like: "I love you very much and think of you always."

Overall, Kate & William seem like good parents. This just feels like a one-off weirdness and oddly public at that.

I think Mother's Day might be a really difficult holiday for William, and so honoring Diana might have been something he does to make the day less difficult.

I thought it was a very pointed and surprisingly blatant reminder that Diana had two sons who were young boys when she died, and while their ways of grieving and processing her loss may have been different, they both grieve for her even today.

My dad lost his dad at age 7. He mother remarried when he was 13 to a wonderful man. I thought he was my real grandfather when I was small. That's probably why I never had warm feelings for my real grand. That & the fact that supposedly he was a real shit.
