The red-letter day has been in the diary for months, if not years, a date which represents such an extraordinary milestone in our island story. On September 9, the Queen becomes the longest-reigning monarch in British history, the day on which she breaks the record held for more than a century by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria. But while the nation may hope to mark this singular achievement, it is not a day of celebration at Buckingham Palace, which feels it would be unseemly to the memory of Victoria.

Since 1945 she has had over 30 as pets For the Queen the summer of 2015 has held other, more personal memories. The arrival of her childhood pet corgi, Susan, all those summers ago, and, poignantly, the 12th anniversary this month of the last litter of House of Windsor corgi puppies. Since 1945, the Queen has had 30 corgis, a good proportion of them direct descendants of Susan, from whom the then Princess Elizabeth was inseparable. In 1947, hidden under blankets in the royal carriage, Susan was whisked away with the newlywed Elizabeth as she left with Prince Philip for their honeymoon. The following year, when the Princess gave birth to her first baby, Charles, newspaper columns were full of advice on how Elizabeth could prevent Susan from becoming jealous of the infant prince.

It marked the beginning of a new royal dynasty. At one stage there were said to be 13 corgis — memorably described by Princess Diana as a ‘moving carpet’ — lolling in the Queen’s private sitting room and nipping the heels of footmen, prime ministers, ladies-in-waiting and diplomats. Every few years, a fresh litter arrived and older dogs passed on. But the Queen’s current corgis, Holly and Willow, now entering the doggie twilight world, will be the last in the line, together with her pair of dorgis — corgi-dachshund crosses Candy and Vulcan. It emerged six years ago that the Queen had stopped breeding Pembroke Welsh corgis. Courtiers said that she worried about lively young dogs around her feet and the danger she might trip over one and hurt herself. But what was not clear was that she also no longer wanted any new four-legged companions to replace those that died.
