Queen Elizabeth is no stranger to writing letters. However, a brand-new ITV documentary just revealed that the 94-year-old monarch doesn’t only write on behalf of herself, but her corgis as well. Yes, you read that correctly.
Queen Elizabeth Apparently Wrote Letters to Other Dogs on Behalf of Her Corgis
According to People, in one part of the documentary (called The Queen and her Cousins), English actor Alexander Armstrong opened up about the time he discovered these handwritten letters in the bathroom of one of Her Majesty’s former officers, Sir Blair Stewart-Wilson.
Armstrong said per The Telegraph, “He would write these letters from their Jack Russell to the corgis, and the Queen would write these letters back. And they put this series of letters up, and they are so funny. I wish I could remember them.” While he didn’t quite remember them all, he made sure to note that they were “wickedly funny.”
While she is the head of the British monarchy, this isn’t the first we’ve heard of Liz having a quirky sense of humor. Back in November 2019, the queen attended a solo outing in London on the day after her 72nd wedding anniversary to her husband, Prince Philip.
During the visit, she made sure to stop and sign the visitors’ book, but not without asking a very important (and ironic) question: “What’s the date?” When a member of her royal staff responded, she stated, “Well, of course, I know what the date is!” How cheeky.
We need to see a copy of one of these doggy letters ASAP.
