Bertie is the name that Kate Middleton’s brother gave his new dog in honor of Queen Elizabeth.
By naming one of his new golden retriever puppies after the late Queen Elizabeth II, Kate Middleton’s brother sent a poignant tribute to her.
James Middleton, 35, chose to memorialize the late monarch after her death on September 8 by naming his new dog “Bertie,” the family nickname for King George VI, Queen Elizabeth’s father, whose first name was Albert.
In an exclusive interview with Hello! magazine, the younger brother of the Princess of Wales stated, “In light of recent events, I wanted a name that is a moving tribute to the late Queen.”
The founder of Ella & Co. gave the puppy, who was born in August to the businesswoman’s dog Mabel, the name in the hopes that it will help him while he undergoes training to become a guide dog.
The entrepreneur told the magazine, “It was fantastic that the Queen dedicated her life to service, and in many ways Bertie the dog will be dedicating his life to service too.
James chose to donate Bertie to Guide Dogs U.K., a charity for the blind and partially sighted so that he could eventually become a devoted companion to someone in need. James married French finance analyst Alizée Thevenet in September of last year.
During his visit to the foundation’s National Centre near Leamington Spa in England, he reportedly gave the puppy over.
James also talked about the state burial for the longest-reigning British monarch that took place last week. On September 19, the Queen and her late husband, Prince Philip, were interred at Windsor Castle’s King George VI Memorial Chapel.
He said, “I was very impacted by the events on Monday [Sept. 19], and I’m still in shock.” “It is astounding to see how many lives Her Majesty has impacted, not just in our nation but also across the Commonwealth and the rest of the world. My perception of that has expanded even further.”
Queen Elizabeth was well renowned for her love of animals and had several corgis and horses over the course of her lifetime.
Muick and Sandy, the late monarch’s two corgis, stood with royal aides to welcome her coffin to Windsor Castle on the day of her funeral before the Queen was laid to rest in King George VI Memorial Chapel.
The Duchess of York and Prince Andrew, the Queen’s second son, are now responsible for caring for the two Pembroke Welsh corgis.
“The corgis will move back in with the Duke and Duchess at Royal Lodge. The puppies, which the Duke gave to Her Majesty as a present, were discovered by the Duchess “People previously had confirmation from an unnamed source close to Prince Andrew.
