This is very sad news for Elizabeth II. A few days after the death of Lupo, the faithful companion of Kate Middleton and Prince William, it is the queen who had to face the death of her dog Vulcan. Present with her Majesty for several years, this corgi cross dachshund was one of her last two dogs, she who several years ago decided to stop adopting pets because of her age, s’ worrying about what would become of them if she were to disappear. A sad loss just before Christmas for Elizabeth II, who can however still count on the presence of Candy, her last dog, also a corgi dachshund.
A true animal lover, Elizabeth II made these little dogs her pet pet several years ago. It was in 1944 that the queen received from her parents her first corgi, named Susan. The first in a long line, since she would have subsequently had no less than 13 dogs, all of the same breed, namely corgis or dachshund crosses. And the loss of Vulcan, who passed away at Windsor Castle a few weeks ago, follows that of Whisper in 2018, who had been adopted by the monarch two years earlier on the death of his original owner. , Bill Fenwick, former Sandringham Ranger.

A Christmas in Windsor for Elizabeth II
This news will undoubtedly shake up the Christmas holidays for Elizabeth II, who for several weeks and confined to Windsor Castle with Prince Philip, with whom she celebrated her 73rd wedding anniversary last November. If she had thought of organizing a hunting party to reunite her family for a government-authorized outdoor activity, the Queen ultimately decided to put the tradition aside and hold the festivities in Windsor, not Sandringham as she used to do for several years.
