Meet The Favorite Pets Of Britain's Longest-Reigning Monarch

Vintage photos show corgis are fit for royalty.

Queen Elizabeth II was recognized on Wednesday as Britain's longest-reigning monarch after 23,226 days on the throne. Elizabeth's great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, previously held the record.

Throughout the years, the Queen has been flanked by the stubby legs and pointed ears of her favorite companions -- her Corgis. The British royal has owned more than 30 Corgis during her reign, including Dookie, Monty and Vulcan.

To honor the Queen's record, take a look at the cutest photos of her adorable pets.
