His first appearance!
In 1926, the then ‘Princess Elizabeth’ made her first public appearance. Her mother and her Pembroke Welsh corgis, Dookie and Jane, joined her for a walk around London. She at that time she did not count that she would be queen, because her uncle was the one who would have the throne.
Edward VIII of the United Kingdom would have risen to the crown, but abdicated when the strict rules of British protocol did not allow him to be with Wallis Simpson. The throne became George VI, Elizabeth’s father, and thus she became the crown princess of the United Kingdom.
