Queen Elizabeth’s corgi Susan played a key role in her wedding with Prince Philip, a report has claimed. The late monarch and her husband tied the knot at Westminster Abbey 75 years ago. Caroline Perry, who released The Corgi and the Queen, revealed how Elizabeth’s four-legged friend played a secret role on her special day.

As the royal couple rode in a carriage on the way to their honeymoon, Susan was stowed away under a rug with a hot water bottle to keep her warm.

The Pembroke corgi joined the then newlyweds when they hopped on at Waterloo Station for a train bound for Hampshire.

The Queen was surrounded by corgis throughout her childhood and subsequent reign.

Susan was given to her by her father King George VI on her 18th birthday.

Speaking about Susan’s role on the “biggest day” of the Queen’s life, Ms Perry told PEOPLE: “A lot of people wonder why she chose the corgi breed.

“People who have corgis will tell you — they’re such amazing dogs, but not easy dogs.

“They’re very spirited — some of her corgis did get into scrapes; Susan did get in trouble a couple of times.

“Even for a very experienced dog handler like the Queen, corgis are not for novice dog owners.

“The fact that she loved them so much, I think it speaks to the fact that she wasn’t able to express her emotions and feelings.”

She added: “She really used her dogs as an expression of herself.

“She couldn’t choose her life, but she could choose her companions.

“The fact that these corgis are so spirited, so lively and so mischievous, I think in some way that was her way of expressing how she felt inside but wasn’t able to convey.

“She was so prim and proper and never put a foot wrong, did she?

“Yet these naughty dogs are doing all kinds of things that maybe she wished she could do.”
