There's nothing but drama around Buckingham Palace at the moment. From the Queen's helicopter hellraising to Pippa Middleton's Manhattan meandering and Prince Harry's wandering willy, Liz and the gang have never been out of the headlines.
We're very sad to report the latest news to hit the royals - 13 year old Monty, the Queen's oldest corgi, has passed away. Monty formerly belonged to the Queen Mother, and appeared with the Queen in the Olympic skit.
Monty is survived by two other members of his corgi family, Willow and Holly.
Kate Middleton is known to be a great animal lover, winning praise from animal rights charity The League Against Cruel Sports after declining to take part in the Queen's annual boxing day shoot.
Kate and William own a black cocker spaniel called Lupo that was specially bred for them by Kate's Mum Carole.
