Queen ‘unable to walk her dogs for a week’ after doctors instruct her to rest

Following medical advice, the Queen has been left unable to walk her dogs.

It’s thought the 95 year old monarch currently has three dogs: 10 year old dorgi, Candy (a dachshund-corgi mix), and two corgi puppies she was gifted earlier on in the year.

The Queen enjoys walking her four-legged friends on a daily basis, but has recently been told to rest in light of her hospital admission last week.

Apparently walking the dogs around Frogmore on her Windsor estate is one of the highlights of her day.

While Her Majesty was admitted to hospital on 20 October, Buckingham Palace didn’t announce the news until the following day.

A spokesperson said: "Following medical advice to rest for a few days, The Queen attended hospital on Wednesday afternoon for some preliminary investigations, returning to Windsor Castle at lunchtime today, and remains in good spirits.”

The Queen was said to have “reluctantly” agreed to follow medical advice of her resting for a few days, and cancelled her recently scheduled trip to Northern Ireland.

Queen Elizabeth had three puppies gifted to her earlier this year by her son Prince Andrew to lift her spirits following the late Duke of Edinburgh's heart surgery, but sadly one died several weeks ago.

The puppy was said to only be around five months old and died due to a heart problem, leaving the Queen devastated.

A source told The Sun at the time of the puppy’s passing: “The Queen is absolutely devastated. The puppies were brought in to cheer her up during a very difficult period.

“Everyone concerned is upset as this comes so soon after she lost her husband.”

Another of the queen’s pets, a dorgi named Vulcan, died before Christmas last year. It’s believed she’d had him for over a decade.

The Queen was present over a video link as she chatted to her guests.
