‘Corgi Cam’ pop-ups take over London as Queen Elizabeth II celebrates platinum jubilee

‘Corgi Cam’ pop-ups have been installed in London as Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her Platinum Jubilee.

Bright brown and white dogs with pointy ears and short legs are the 96-year-old Queen’s favorite dog breed.

Visitors can take pictures with a rotating team of dogs while dressing in faux ermine robes, crowns and tiaras at a corgi pop-up in London’s historic Leadenhall Market.

According to event organizer Katie Raby, the free Corgi Cam event exceeded expectations, with some waiting several hours to attend.

“Everyone associates the dog with her majesty and we wanted to be able to celebrate that,” she says.

Queen Elizabeth II, who appeared with her dogs in a James Bond parody clip filmed for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, has kept Pembroke Welsh Corgis since she was 18.

Although the breed remains fairly rare in the UK, it has recently seen a resurgence in interest due to the Netflix series ‘The Crown’.

“A lot of people have never met a corgi,” Raby says. “There aren’t many these days.”

With approximately five-minute slots each featuring a corgi, the pop-ups pay homage to the British monarch famous for her love of corgis.

To keep her company, she always has a dorgi named Candy with two corgi puppies Muick and Sandy.
