For most of us a birthday comes once a year, but like Paddington bear our monarch Queen Elizabeth has 2 birthdays and this year is celebrating her 90th year with 8 official days of fun entertainment, from street parties to concerts.
So here's a few fun facts that you might not know about our #Queenat90 -
- Her Majesty is well known for her love of corgis, having received her first one as an 18th birthday present named Susan.
- The Queen once invented a new breed of dog called the ‘dorgi’ after she mated her pet corgi with one of Princess Margaret’s dachshunds. The dorgi was named chipper, however, he was killed after The Queen Mother’s dog attacked him.
- On the topic of dogs, Her Majesty once demoted a royal footman after it was discovered he had been getting the corgis drunk by mixing whisky and gin to their food and water.
As a respect of her love of the Corgi we have created this fun activity download for your child to enjoy.
