Sad news, gang. One of Queen Elizabeth’s corgis — who appeared in the James Bond sketch during the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics — passed away earlier this week. Oh man, I do not like that. I do not like that at all.
The palace on Sunday confirmed that Monty — who was previously owned by the Queen Mother — had died. It did not provide details on when or how Monty died, or the age of the dog, but added that another of the queen’s pets, dachshund-corgi crossbreed Cider, also had died.
With the death of Monty, Queen Elizabeth II now has two corgis in the palace — Willow and Holly — both of whom also appeared in the Olympics sketch. [ABC News]
