Queen no longer owns any corgis

For the first time since 1944.  At the age of 18,  a then Princess Elizabeth, was gifted one of the cutest corgis -- but then she would go on to breed more than 40 or so over the course of her reign over the United Kingdom.   Now,  according to Buckingham Palace (while they aren't directly commenting on it)  a confirmation was given that the final corgi of the Queen's was put down. The Telegraph reports that Willow, 15, was the last of her actual corgis that had died and been put down due to complications from cancer.   The Queen and her dogs are perhaps most remembered for their  appearance at the London Olympics in that now hilarious skit with James Bond.

The Queen turned up at London Fashion Week – Hot Today

London Fashion Week was pretty much a drag this year, and,  we know that first hand considering four of our ladies were front row. But,  eagle-eyed attendees quickly discovered that things went a different direction when it was discovered that Queen Elizabeth II attended also front-row. New York Fashion Week  was  seriously much more interesting,  although, we always love a good appearance from the Queen at a public event.    Of course, Anna Wintour had to hob-knob it with the Queen (as she does at every fashion event to appear cool to the young folks who have no real idea who she is).   https://twitter.com/RE_DailyMail/status/965983875888500736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.elleuk.com%2Ffashion%2Fnews%2Fa41802%2Fqueen-richard-quinn-london-fashion-week%2F...

Queen Elizabeth II has always been a fascinating character,  and, the latest documentary on her family and the history of the said family is no different.   The Coronation premiered on the BBC this week, and,  certainly had viewers talking -- particularly Queen Elizabeth herself. In the documentary, viewers learned some pretty spectacular facts about life inside Buckingham Palace during World War II.     Interestingly,  the Queen apparently didn't know where her father hid the Imperial jewels during the war, mostly, because she may have been a little young at the time. The makers of The Coronation have now changed that.   According to their research,  King Edward hid the Imperial Jewels and the Crown inside a tin of cookies, and then, ordered it buried underneath an escape tunnel...

Despite calls from party leaders and the like to scrap the grant all together. According to financial reports released from the Palace, the Queen's sovereign grant is expected to raise 6.5% for the next fiscal year to £45.6 million in 2017/18.
