New Corgi for the Queen!

Today’s incredibly sweet news bulletin from The Sun in London is that the Queen has adopted nine-year-old Whisper, a Corgi previously owned by Bill Fenwick, a gamekeeper on her Sandringham estate who died recently at age 93. His wife Nancy, who took care of the Royal Corgis when the Queen was away, died two years ago at 85. The Queen began taking Whisper on walks with Willow, a Corgi, and Vulcan and Candy, both “Dorgis,” a breed she created by mating Corgis and Dachshunds. She became so smitten with Whisper that she asked the Fenwick family if she could keep him.

Made of gold with enamel, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, diamonds, and pearls, the Crown of Princess Blanche, also called the Palatine Crown or Bohemian Crown, is the oldest surviving royal crown known to have been in England, and probably dates to the years after 1370.
The crown came to the Palatinate line of the House of Wittelsbach in 1402 as a dowry of Princess Blanche of England, a daughter of King Henry IV of England, on her marriage to Louis III, Elector Palatine.
