Candy the dog stole the show as Queen Elizabeth II took a trip down memory lane leading up to her Platinum Jubilee this weekend.
As the Queen perused a selection of cards, recipes and mementoes from children and others around the world, her beloved dorgi, a cross between a corgi and a dachshund, photobombed the moment by walking through the Oak Room at Windsor Castle.
“And, where did you come from,” the Queen says leaning down to boop Candy’s nose.
Candy’s tail is wagging happily as the pooch waddles out of the room.
“I know what you want,” she adds, to laughter. (Likely, treats.)
On Feb. 6, the Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the country and Commonwealth.
In her message, she references the broadcast she made on her 21st birthday in which she pledged her life’s work to the people of the Commonwealth with the words:— The Royal Family (@RoyalFamily) February 5, 2022

The Queen seemed genuinely touched by all the well-wishes in a video shared by the Royal Family Channel.

And those who joined her were equally thrilled to be present for her look back at a remarkable reign.
“The Queen has taken a trip down memory lane as she viewed well-wishes from Jubilees gone by, ahead of celebrating 70 years on the throne this weekend,” the Royal Family Channel tweeted. “But the monarch wasn’t the only member of the royal household getting a sneak-peek – her pet dog Candy also took a look!”

The Queen has enjoyed a long line of corgis during her reign.
And, citizens far and wide have also enjoyed her longevity on the throne.
The Queen also viewed a finger-print portrait created by school children in Leicestershire and a card reading ‘Ma-am you’re the tops!’ that were sent in for the Golden Jubilee.— The Royal Family (@RoyalFamily) February 4, 2022
The items have been saved in the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle for posterity. pic.twitter.com/6bvAJ3XYBQ
