The queen is a known dog-lover, so it's no surprise that she was all-smiles arriving at this today's medical detection dogs demonstration at Buckingham Palace. She and Camilla spent the morning with the pups, who are trained to "smell disease in humans, as well as acting as alert dogs for those with medical issues such as type 1 diabetes," according to the Royal Family's Instagram account. See all the photos from the day below.

According to the Clarence House Instagram, "HM & HRH were given a demonstration of the dog's incredible ability. Cocker spaniel Kizzy showed her ability to smell cancer and black Labrador Peanut was able to detect Parkinson's disease from sweat samples."
Today's event, which was held at the Royal Mews, was a celebration in honor of the charity's 10th anniversary.
