Corgi Parade Planned To Honor Queen Elizabeth II

As citizens across the world are honoring and paying respects to Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away yesterday, people closer to home are organizing an event dedicated to one of her passions, corgis.

Corgi owners are set to gather at a few Royal landmarks alongside their dogs in order to celebrate the life of the Queen, a noted animal lover and corgi owner.

Corgi owners across Britain are planning an event to honor the late Queen Elizabeth.

Agatha Crerer-Gilbert, a fan of the Royal family and corgi owner herself, provided a description for the event, writing, "To celebrate the life of Her Majesty we are planning to [organize] corgi gatherings at Buckingham Palace and other Royal estates – Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral."

"Rest in peace – she’s gone to heaven to join all her corgis."

Queen Elizabeth was famously a fan of the breed, having owned over 30 of them throughout her lifetime, leaving behind two when she passed, Muick and Sandy.

This is a lovely (and adorable) way to remember the Queen for one of her passions, animals.

As Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Metro, "If she had not been the monarch, [the Queen] would have been happy as a countrywoman surrounded by her dogs and horses."

"Her image, carefully cultivated over the decades, is iconic and includes her corgis on whom she has always doted."

Agatha knew this as well.

That's why she and many other corgi lovers will come pay their respects alongside their dogs, creating an environment and an event the Queen surely would have loved.

As Fitzwilliams put it, "Her image, carefully cultivated over the decades, is iconic and includes her corgis on whom she has always doted."
