The late monarch was known for her love of the furry pets throughout her 70-year-reign. One recently unearthed video, from Prince Harry’s christening, shows the Queen’s deep affection for one of her beloved dogs, Dash.
The clip shows Her Majesty speaking with a young Zara and Peter Phillips at the christening.
Speaking about her new pup, she said to the youngsters: “It’s called Dash! And you know the word you use when you’re cross? Dash!
“It comes out frightfully well as a dog’s name you see.”
She delivered the update on the dog with a cheerful hand gesture showing off her personality not always seen during official engagements.
When she died, the Queen owned two corgis called Muick and Sandy, and one dorgi named Candy.
Some of the other late sovereign’s corgis were named Susan, Willow, Holly, Vulcan, Dookie, Monty, Honey, Berry, Emma, and Linnet.
Susan was the Queen’s first pup, who was gifted to her as an 18th birthday present from her dad, King George VI, in 1944.
The Queen even took Susan on her honeymoon three years later in 1947.

Since the Queen’s sad passing last month, Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson have taken in Muick and Sandy.
Sarah told the Telegraph that taking care of the late Queen’s corgis is a “big honour”.
She went on to say that the pups are “national treasures” who have been “taught well”.
Muick was given to the Queen by her second eldest son, the Duke of York, along with another corgi names Fergus during lockdown in 2021, while Prince Philip was in hospital.
Fergus sadly died in May 2021, reportedly leaving the monarch “devastated”.
On what would have been Prince Philip’s 100th birthday, Prince Andrew is said to have bought his mother another puppy named Sandy to replace Fergus.
Muick and Sandy waited at Windsor Castle during the Queen’s state funeral, as the cortege arrived.
Also on display was the Queen’s Fell pony, Carltonlima Emma, who was led to the side of the road at a gap between floral tributes while the coffin was driven past.
