That’s doggy cute.

King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla were greeted by a special fan in Northern Ireland on Tuesday.

The newly appointed monarch and queen consort greeted mourners of Queen Elizabeth II at Hillsborough Castle — including a corgi named Connie.

The king seemed delighted to meet the white-tanned pup as he pointed at her and let the animal sniff his hands.

He also spoke to Connie’s owner during the meeting.

Queen Elizabeth II — who died on September 8 at age 96 — had a long-standing love for corgis, having owned more than 30 of them during her 70-year reign.

However, her obsession with the breed began in her childhood, long before she met and married Prince Phillip.

As a 7-year-old princess in 1933, Elizabeth II reportedly asked her father, King George VI, for a Pembroke Welsh corgi after meeting her friend’s pet. The lively dogs were bred mainly in Wales at the time and were still quite rare in England, but George VI found a breeder.

For example, Dookie the corgi entered the royal family as the first of many of Elizabeth II’s dogs.

The royal family even created its own hybrid breed in the 1970s with its sister Princess Margaret, the ‘dorgi’, a cross between a dachshund and a corgi.

The Queen left behind four dogs when she died: two Pembroke Welsh corgis, a dorgi and a cocker spaniel.

The Duke and Duchess of York – Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson – are taking with them the corgis that belonged to the late Queen, with whom Fergie “had a bond” on dog walks, according to The Telegraph.

“The Duchess bonded with Her Majesty about walking dogs and riding horses, and even after her divorce, she would continue her great friendship with Her Majesty by walking the dogs in Frogmore and chatting,” a source said. at the outlet.

The Queen’s funeral will take place on September 19 at Westminster Abbey.
