The Queen is known to be inseparable from her beloved Corgis. Now poignant pictures have emerged of the graves of royal pets from throughout the generations. The little-known plot is hidden away in a quiet corner of the 20,000-acre Sandringham estate in Norfolk. It was created by Queen Victoria after the death of her Collie, Noble, in 1887, and revived in 1959 when Elizabeth II wanted somewhere to bury her first Corgi, Susan.

The puppy was given to the Queen on her 18th birthday by King George VI, and her gravestone calls her ‘the faithful companion of the Queen’, an epitaph which is also used on the headstones of two of her descendants, Sugar and Heather. A stone boundary wall inset with plaques [commemorating more pets] separates the pet cemetery from the rest of the estate.

Yappy, snappy ankle-biters! As the Queen mourns death of the corgi that starred in James Bond stunt, why she loves her pooches ‒ as much as the rest of the Palace hates them

Each entrance was blocked by a sleeping corgi, and Prince Philip had to shove his way in. ‘Bloody dogs,’ he complained.’ The Queen replied, ‘But darling, they are so collectable.’ Love this pic of the Queen

Princess Elizabeth with corgi at window. Love this picture for Princess Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth II) with Corgi.

The Queen's Corgis Holly and Willow, pictured closest to Her Majesty, have been a regular sight during her rule but she has ruled out introducing any new dogs.

Holly and Willow could be the Queen's last Corgis
