The first memorial statue of the late Queen Elizabeth II was unveiled featuring her beloved corgis.

LONDON, April 22: In a historic moment commemorating what would have been her 98th birthday, the first memorial statue honoring the late Queen was unveiled, featuring her beloved corgis faithfully at her side.

Amidst cheers from crowds and the approving barks of nearly 50 corgis, the eye-catching seven-foot bronze statue was revealed, capturing the essence of the late Queen’s affection for her loyal companions. A delegation of dogs from The Welsh Corgi League added to the celebratory atmosphere, paying homage to the Queen’s enduring bond with the breed.

The striking memorial portrays a youthful Queen Elizabeth in flowing regal robes, standing at her modest height of 5 feet 4 inches, with three loyal corgis by her side. One corgi even peeks out from the folds of her attire, adding a touch of whimsy to the scene. The statue stands as a lasting tribute to her remarkable 70-year reign and her unwavering devotion to the Pembroke Welsh breed.

Sculptor Hywel Pratley expressed confidence that the memorial would not only resonate with royal enthusiasts but also attract attention from social media users eager to capture selfies beside the late Queen and her trio of corgis.

Throughout her decades on the throne, the late Queen shared a special connection with her furry companions, owning an estimated 30 corgis and dorgis (corgi and dachshund mixes). Her affinity for the Pembroke Welsh Corgi solidified her status as perhaps the most famous owner of the breed in history, with countless photographs capturing their presence by her side during official engagements and private moments alike.
