New dogs of Buckingham Palace are rescue pooches

As Queen Elizabeth II’s two Corgis and one Dorgi are being cared for and loved by Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York at their Windsor home, King Charles III and his wife Camilla are bringing with them their own dogs. And these two spirited pooches are rescue dogs!

The two Jack Russell terriers named Beth, 11, and Bluebell,10, were adopted from the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in London in 2017. In an interview, we learned how the Queen Consort met the dogs.

Along I went to Battersea, and Beth appeared and she had just been moved from pillar to post and dumped. We thought it would be nice for her to have a friend. They found [Bluebell] two or three weeks later wandering about in woods, no hair on her, covered in sores, virtually dead. And they nursed her back to life and her hair grew again. She’s very sweet, but a tiny bit neurotic, shall we say.”


The dogs love to be around children, but the royals announced the dogs do not sleep in bed with them.

Both King Charles and the Queen Consort are very fond of dogs, but perhaps this quote will clear any questions:

The nice thing about dogs is you can sit them down, you could have a nice long conversation, you could be cross, you could be sad, and they just sit looking at you wagging their tail.

At this time, Buckingham Palace is undergoing renovations, so the dogs will be staying with Charles and Camilla at the Clarence House in London. And so these two pups will be following in the pawprints of the late Queen’s loved dogs, but we love that they are rescues and sincerely hope more people read this and adopt a new friend from their local shelter. There are just too many dogs in need of homes, and we can save so many more – just one dog at a time.
