Can You Guess The Queen’s SECOND Favorite Breed?

We all know Queen Elizabeth loves herself some Corgis, but an interview revealed that Her Majesty also deems another, larger dog fit for a queen.

It’s none other than the AKC’s most popular breed for 25 consecutive years: The Labrador Retriever

A family friend, Ben Fogle, recently published a book, Labrador: The Story of the World’s Favourite Dog, and People reported that in an interview, Fogle said that the Queen has a kennel of Labs.

"They are one part of her life she likes to keep private," Fogle told the U.K. Times. “The Queen has often lamented... how much she wished she could spend more time with her beloved Labradors.”

The Queen is known for being surrounded with her Corgis—owning up to eight at one time. The Brits even held a Corgi “race” to guess the sex and name of the Prince William and Kate Middleton’s second child. And when her majesty announced last year that she will not be acquiring any new Corgis due to her age and fear of tripping over the little dogs, it made international news.

Meanwhile, William and Kate (and George and Charlotte too) share their home with Lupo, a black Cocker Spaniel.
