The Queen is down to just one dog after the passing of her dorgi named Vulcan.

The tradition for keeping corgis started with the Queen Mother, and only ended recently.

In recent years, Her Majesty - who has owned more than 30 corgis since 1945 - stopped breeding them due to her age. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

The Sun reported Vulcan's death yesterday evening, leaving the Queen "upset" at her loss.

The Queen's Pembroke Welsh Corgi and dachshund mix Vulcan has died.

The Queen's corgis were said to have ruled the roost in Buckingham Palace and according to the Independent, they were served fish, steak, rabbit or chicken for dinner.

"However for those who have loved a dog know the truth: a dog is not just a pet; it is a member of the family, a best friend, a loyal companion, a teacher and a therapist".

The royals have a crop of dogs known as "dorgis" bred by the Queen.

The unique reminder of her sister has a few key differences from the average corgi.

The Queen now has one dorgi left, Candy, and she may well be her last.

The sad news adds to what may be a lonely Christmas for the Queen.

"The fact is she worries about too many dogs around her feet and the danger she will trip up and hurt herself badly", a senior courtier told The Express.

This leaves the British head of state with only one pet, her dog Candy.
