“Caring for the dogs sometimes falls to the servants, but mostly to the queen’s trusted seamstress and assistant, Angela Kelly; and to Paul Whybrew, the right-hand man who was seen walking with the queen and the dogs in the James Bond parody,” the author wrote in 2018, in the book All The Queen’s Corgis.

“They both like dogs, have access to the queen and say they are very close to her,” concludes Penny Junor.
