Smith also noted how she and her partner have a special place in their hearts for corgis because of the sovereign. “From seeing her with all her corgis, we thought if they’re good enough for her, they’re good enough for us,” she said.
“With her passing, it’s so surreal, you somehow never think it’ll actually happen. Everything stood still,” she added.
Smith also revealed how when she went to pick up Wilbur from the breeder, she even had an encounter with Muick.
“We held the queen’s actual corgi — and we own his brother!” she exclaimed. “ ‘The queen’s dog chewed my shoelaces’ is not something you ever expect to say!”
Elizabeth had a big passion for corgis, owning many dogs throughout her 70-year reign. Her love for the breed goes back to her early childhood when she specifically requested a Pembroke Welsh corgi in 1933 at the age of 7.
