She's loved them since she was a child, and they've accompanied her through much of her reign as queen. We're speaking, of course, of Queen Elizabeth's beloved corgis.

Vulcan was one of the four royal dogs that was immortalized in the Queen's portraits taken for her 90th birthday by the famous Annie Leibovitz.
