A small gathering of royal enthusiasts and their corgis was held on Sunday to mark the one-year anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s death.
About 20 British royals and their corgis gathered to walk in a parade outside Buckingham Palace. The late monarch famously loved the breed, having owned various corgis since she was a child.
In total, Elizabeth owned around 30 corgis in her lifetime. Many of her dogs were descended from a corgi named Susan, who was given to her on her 18th birthday in 1942.
The adorable parade pictures show the corgis in various poses, including crowns and tiaras. The short-legged dogs were all photographed together with their leashes tied at the gates near the palace.

The organizer of the event told The Associated Press that she hopes the corgi parade will take place every year.
“I can see no better way to remember her than through her corgis, through the breed she loved and loved in her life,” explained organizer Agatha Crerer-Gilbert.

“You know, I still can’t get used to the fact that he’s not physically around us, but he’s looking at us,” she added. “Look, the sun is shining, I thought it would shine on us today.”
Aleksandr Barmin, owner of a corgi named Cinnamon, said he saw the parade as a powerful reminder of the Queen’s death.

“It’s a really difficult feeling, to be honest … it’s really sad that we don’t have (the Queen) with us anymore,” he said. “But then again, Her Majesty the Queen is still in our hearts.”
