A new emoji paying tribute to the Queen’s love for dogs has been unveiled ahead of her long-awaited Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The cartoon image, which features a Corgi – the Queen’s favorite breed – named PJ wearing a purple and platinum crown, has appeared on the Royal Family’s official Twitter page.

The emoji will automatically appear on Twitter when the celebratory anniversary hashtags are used – including #PlatinumJubilee, #HM70, #PlatinumPartyatthePalace, #PlatinumJubileePageant and #TheBigJubileeLunch.

The Queen has owned more than 30 corgis during her reign, most of whom were descendants of her first corgi, Susan, who was given to her on her 18th birthday in 1944.

The last dog in Susan’s line, Willow, died in 2018, followed by Whisper, a purebred Corgi, and Vulcan, a “Dorgi,” or Corgi/Dachshund crossbreed.

These days the Queen has three dogs: an older dorgi named Candy and two corgi puppies Muick and Sandy who have kept her busy during the Covid pandemic.

Corgis will perform as part of the finale of the Jubilee Pageant where a pack of mischievous doll dogs will wreak havoc on The Mall.

The Queen isn’t the only Queen to own dogs – in fact, most of the family shares their home with the animal.

Prince Charles and Camilla share two Jack Russell Terriers, while Prince Edward and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex have a black Labrador and Cocker Spaniel, and Princess Anne has had English Bull Terriers for decades.

Prince William and Kate were given a cocker spaniel as a wedding present by brother James Middleton in 2011, but he has since passed away. The Cambridges welcomed another Cocker Spaniel puppy to their home shortly after.

Prince Harry and Meghan adopted a Labrador together while also taking care of the Duchess’s beagle, which she had before their relationship.
