Despite saying that she did not want to take on any additional pets several years ago, Queen Elizabeth has adopted a new dog: a nine-year-old corgi named Whisper.
The Sun reports that Whisper previously belonged to the late Bill Fenwick, who served as Sandringham's gamekeeper, and the Queen "fell in love" with the pup after taking him for walks when Bill passed away in January
"The Queen has always had corgis but she made the decision four years ago not to breed
"But she couldn’t resist Whisper and now she has asked Bill’s family if she can keep him."
