Maybe the most memorable time in recent years that a Pembroke Welsh Corgi has made the headlines was during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Daniel Craig in his role as James Bond went to Buckingham Palace to escort Queen Elizabeth to the opening ceremony. They travelled via helicopter and a parachute jump (spoofs, of course). It wasn’t the debonair spy or Her Majesty that stole the show, however, but her pair of Corgis!
Queen Elizabeth’s Corgis also starred in the 2019 movie, The Queen’s Corgi. In the movie, her favorite corgi escapes the palace and ends up in a dog fight club before eventually finding his way back home. The Queen has always had Corgis in her household since her father gifted her one called Rozavel Golden Eagle in 1933. The award-winning Netflix series, The Crown which provides a fictionalized look at the British Royal Household has done much to revive interest in the breed.
