Pet-crazy Britain has a monarch to match. It is said the Queen’s private passions follow this order: “horses, dogs, husband and kids.” For the first time, this film documents the extraordinary relationship between the Windsors and their animals. The revelations come courtesy of staff who cooked and cared for them. From the footman who walked the Queen’s Corgis, to the chef who cut carrots for her horses, they tell a tale of pampered palace pets - and hypocrisy.
The Windsors seem to trust their pets more than most humans. For good reason: a wagging dog’s tail trumps the contrived smile of a courtier; and none of their horses talk to the tabloids.
