Queen gives up breeding corgis
The Queen no longer breeds corgis because she doesn’t want to leave a young pet when she dies, a royal aide has revealed.|
Monty Roberts was disturbed by the comment because he couldn’t imagine a world without the 89-year-old monarch.
The 80-year-old, who advises the Queen on her horses, told Vanity Fair magazine: “She
didn’t want to have any more young dogs.
“She didn’t want to leave any young dog behind. She wanted to put an end to it.”
Monty said the conversation “still concerns” him.
He explained: “I want her to believe in her existence until she’s no longer here.”
“She’s just too important to the world to contemplate checking out. For me, the Queen can’t die.”
But he added: “I have no right to try to force her into continuing to bring on puppies if she doesn’t want to.”
The Queen has owned more than 30 corgis, all bred from the first named Susan, a present on her 18th birthday.
