Queen Elizabeth has two new dogs.

The 94-year-old monarch has had over 30 canine companions over the years.

She was recently given two corgi puppies has a gift, believed to be the first dogs that the queen has owned who are not direct descendants of Susan - the dog she received for her 18th birthday in 1944.

The queen is said to be "delighted" to have more dogs around her. 

The monarch hasn't had a corgi since 2018 after the 14th generation descendant of Willow was put to sleep, and another dog, Whisper, died six months later.
