From tenderloin steaks to the queen who pours the sauce herself – the very extravagant meals enjoyed by the royal family’s pet corgis

The Queen loves corgis and is believed to have kept more than 30 at various times during her reign.

As you can imagine, the Queen’s beloved pets were treated to a life of pure luxury, with their meals more extravagant than most.

Pampered pooches are said to dine on a fine diet of beef tenderloin and chicken breast cooked by a professional chef.

Royal biographer Brian Hoey revealed the details of the corgi’s luxurious diet in his book Pets by Royal Appointment.

He also revealed how the carefully prepared meals are delivered by a footman and covered in sauce poured by the Queen herself.

According to Mail Online, the dogs never eat canned food and were even given homeopathic remedies when they got sick.

The monarch’s long history with corgi dates back to 1933 when her father brought home a corgi that would later be named Dookie.

When she was younger, the Queen also had a corgi called Susan, which was given to her in 1944 for her 18th birthday, and quickly became a close companion.

Many of the Queen’s later corgis are said to be descendants of Susan, as the Queen continued to breed the line of dogs for fifty years.

She even went on to create a number of “dorgis”, having crossed one of her dogs with Margaret’s dachshund, Pipkin.
