Queen Elizabeth’s cheeky pet ‘dorgi’ has interrupted Her Majesty during a memorabilia viewing at Windsor Castle on February 5, waltzing into the room in the cutest manner possible.

The Queen was reviewing memorabilia documents from fans at the time of the interruption, when her female dog, a cross between a dachshund and a corgi, ‘Candy’ is seen waltzing into the room to greet her.

Her Majesty was adoringly unbothered by the interruption, greeting her beloved Candy with cheeky delight. “And where did you come from?” the Queen asked, giving Candy a loving stroke.

“I know what you want,” she joked, as Candy waltzed back out of the room.

ITV News Royal Editor, Chris Ship, taped the interruption, posting it to Twitter for the world to see.

Fans were delighted by the video, admiring the Queen’s love for her furry friends and the sweetness of her interaction with Candy.

The Queen has owned more than 30 corgis and dorgis over the course of her reign.

In the video, the Queen was enjoying her memorabilia viewing, accompanied by the Librarian and assistant keeper of the royal archives, chuckling as she read a card addressed to her from a nine-year-old-boy. The card was titled “A recipe for a perfect Queen”, reading “500ml of royal blood”, a “dab of jewels and posh gowns” and “a dash of loyalty”.

Another card was addressed to her from Bottle Tops, reading “Ma’am You’re the Tops” to which the Queen commented, “That’s good, simple but ingenious”. The card had been referring to Her Majesty’s 2002 Golden Jubilee which marked the 50th anniversary since her coronation.

The Queen continues to delight fans with her kind and witty nature, especially since the death of her husband Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh, on April 9, 2021. She is currently enjoying her Platinum Jubilee celebrations and will look forward to her 95th Birthday on 21st April 2022.
