HRH Queen Elizabeth II Launches Royal Dog Treats

Given the British Queen’s love of Corgis, wasn’t it just a matter of time before she launched her own royal line of dog treats?

The 95-year-old monarch has given her approval for a line of canine snacks, called Game Bones, which are made with game meat from the grounds surrounding her Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England, and flavored with royal venison.

The treats come in a paper bag with the seal of the Royal Family, so your dog knows it’s eating like a Queen. 
The Queen is renowned for her love of dogs in general, and in particular the many Corgis and Dorgis (a cross between a Corgi and a Dachshund) she has owned since getting her first dog at the age of 18. When her last Corgi died in 2018 the resulting press coverage rivalled or surpassed that given to major statesmen and former prime ministers.

Queen Elizabeth was also recently gifted a new pet pooch by her son Prince Andrew and her granddaughters, the princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Not surprisingly, the Queen’s Corgis and Dorgis have long enjoyed their own special menu, according to former royal chef Darren McGrady, who revealed to the British press a few ‘inside the doghouse’ royal secrets.

“I didn’t expect to be cooking for the Queen’s dogs when I started working at Buckingham Palace,” McGrady said after his 15 year tenure. “I thought I was going to be cooking for kings, queens and presidents. I did eventually, but one of the first jobs I had was cooking for the corgis – the Royal Corgis – making fresh food every day.”

In a completely shocking revelation, McGrady revealed the Queen’s pets could be considered slightly spoiled. 
“They sleep in, like, little wicker baskets in the corgi room and they are looked after by two footmen, called Doggie 1 and Doggie 2,” McGrady dished. “The most important part of the meat was everything had to be cut into a fine dice… to be sure there were no bones at all in the meat. Imagine if any of the dogs were to choke… I’d be in real trouble.”

With all that care going into the feeding of the Queen’s dogs, we’re pretty sure the new Game Bones dog treats will be pretty high end.

The dog treats cost five quid a bag, or about seven US dollars, and can be picked up at the gift shop at the Sandringham Estate, nestled in among the luxury £50 pet beds and £30 leather collars.
