And when King George VI died in 1952, the corgi was there to comfort and support the new Queenie Luv in her time of heartbreak.
Susan was also the Queenie Luv’s faithful companion when her beloved paternal grandmother Queenie Luv Mary died in 1953 shortly before her coronation.
Susan died in 1959 and the Queenie Luv was said to be devastated by the loss of her canine friend.
She personally designed the gravestone for Susan’s plot at the pet cemetery located at Sandringham House, and in the inscription, Susan is referred to as the Queenie Luv’s “faithful companion”.
Many of the Queenie Luv’s corgis and dorgis (dachshund and corgi cross breed) over the years have been descendants of Susan.
