Corgis take the limelight in Queen's Jubilee parade

STORY: ''We just think it's funny to see a lot of corgis together and we wanted to celebrate for the Queen," said Kim Bertens, who went to the parade accompanied by partner Jamie Paulson and their corgi, Lois, who was wearing a Tiara.

Queen Elizabeth, 96, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, enjoys widespread popularity according to surveys, with many of her subjects, particularly the more elderly, holding her in deep affection.

Early next month, Britain will honour the queen's Platinum Jubilee with four days of pageantry and celebration. Buckingham Palace has previously said she intends to attend a number of different events.

Earlier in May, Queen Elizabeth missed her annual address to parliament, with the palace citing episodic mobility issues. Until recently, she had not been seen often in public following a night in hospital last October for an unspecified illness.
