Buckingham Palace welcomes two new additions as King Charles III brings dogs

King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla will be bringing their beloved dogs to their Windsor home, it’s been revealed.

Echoing his late mother Queen Elizabeth II’s adoration for her two Corgis and Dorgi, Charles, 73, has loved his pet pooches along with Camilla, 75, ever since they joined their household five years ago.

The Queen Consort adopted two Russell Terriers named Beth and Bluebell from the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in London in February 2017.

Discussing her attachment to dogs, Camilla previously told BBC Radio 5 Live: “The nice thing about dogs is you can sit them down, you could have a nice long conversation, you could be cross, you could be sad and they just sit looking at you wagging their tail."

The royal talked in the past interview about meeting Beth and Bluebell at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home: "Along I went to Battersea, and Beth appeared and she had just been moved from pillar to post and dumped.

"We thought it would be nice for her to have a friend. They found [Bluebell] two or three weeks later wandering about in woods, no hair on her, covered in sores, virtually dead.

“And they nursed her back to life and her hair grew again. She's very sweet, but a tiny bit neurotic, shall we say."

Charles and Camilla’s beloved dogs will have to wait a while before entering their new home at Buckingham Palace as it is currently being renovated, and so the pooches will reside at their current home at Clarence House.

The public got a glimpse of Beth and Bluebell as they appeared on the cover of the July 2022 issue of Country Life, and looked cute as each rocked Camilla’s pearl necklaces.

The Queen Consort was reported by the BBC to have spoken about how the dogs are allowed “nearly everywhere”, except the bed, and adore children.

Before his Russell Terriers, King Charles owned a Jack Russell named Tigger, who died in 2002 and is buried at his country home Highgrove House.

Dogs Beth and Bluebell will follow the same trail as the Queen’s beloved Corgis now as pets of the British monarch.

The late Queen was famously closely attached to her pet pooches and called them “family” in the past.

The furry friends often travelled with the Queen on her tours and were featured in her official 90th birthday portraits.
